Summer Spin; How To: A Dress & Cardigan

Hey Loves! 
Happy Tuesday! I hope you all are doing well and excited for this coming week. 


Today's post is a collaboration I am doing with a fellow blogger +Kierra Makayla! We both decided it would be a fun way to interact with each other and have some fun. Being that we both live in different parts of the country, I thought it would be good to see how we each style a dress with some type of cover up over the dress. Ya know, different place and different weather! It's always fascinating to see the differences between two outfits based on the weather and location. So we are calling it the Summer Spin, and how we both decided to wear our dresses! To see +Kierra Makayla and how she styled her dress check out her blog at lavishingg.com


When it comes to Summer I always think of dresses and feeling free and relaxed in one. Since I live in Southern California it is very hot during Summer so the less clothing the better for me! To be honest, when I was taking these pictures I was getting really hot! haha, so that's the reason why I went with a light kimono instead of a cardigan! This dress is super old, I've had it since high school so I totally forgot where it is from. I always loved the color of it and the fit so that's why it has stayed in my closet for so long. :P I went with gold for the accessories - gold sandals & gold statement necklace, since the dress is fairly basic. I also added a gold watch to add some bling to my wrist. ;)
