Is it just me or did this summer seem to pass quicker than others? With Labor Day just a little over a week away, I want to take full advantage of summer’s pleasures while I still can. My mental list includes things like grilling burgers outside, having friends over for rosé and dinners al fresco (side note: I’m loving the recipes in this cookbook right now!), and, of course, wearing all my summer favorites.
For me, eyelet lace epitomizes easy summer days. It’s light, feminine, and has this delicate allure that you just can’t find in other materials. It’s surprisingly versatile (this dress, for example, is equally perfect for happy hour or by the pool), too, which makes adding new additions to my closet difficult to resist. I’ve found some really perfect options lately – and thanks to all the current sales, a lot of them are marked down (hello!). This top is the cutest thing (love the ruffles!) and it’s $50. I’m also really obsessed with this Ulla Johnson one. The long sleeves make it one that I can wear with denim in the fall. Other favorites include this one (such a good sale score!), this one, and this one. I also found several cute dresses. With scallops and eyelet, this dress is double the fun – plus it’s under $100! And how cute is this one for $63? Stock up and save them for next summer!
