The title of this post is a little ironic, because I took these photos on my trip to Wisconsin, but to me this dress is a quintessential southern summer look! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get this look up quickly enough before the dress sold out, but I have seen it at my local Banana Republic (on major sale) and popping back in on the website- so stay tuned if you love it as much as I do 🙂
So what makes a dress “southern summer” appropriate? For me, it’s all in the ladylike details! From the delicate ruffled “vee”, to the fitted bodice, to the flared midi hem- this dress brings me back to the days of grace and simplicity (all things I associate with the south)! And perhaps, most importantly, it’s cool enough to handle this intense summer heat! What is your quintessential summer dress?
