So Los Angeles wants to give us one more extreme heat wave before it’s ready to grace us with autumn! D:
With temperatures that are over the hundreds daily, it’s been toasty, sweaty, and steamy, no matter where you go.
However, I’ve been using the hot weather to really work on my creativity by finding ways to dress stylishly yet weather-appropriately, since obviously, the heat doesn’t seem to be leaving us anytime soon.
Following up on my obsession with t-shirt dresses this summer, I’ve recently picked up this simple yet cute one-piece from Forever 21. The best part about this t-shirt dress – it’s completely effortless and with a cinched waist, it makes for the perfect back-to-school get-up! 🙂
With its color blocking details and patch pocket, this otherwise simple piece is given embellishments that make it stand out just a little more than your average one-piece dress.
Although the waist is cinched with elastic already, I didn’t want it to get lost amongst the monochromatic color scheme, so I tried to really emphasize it with a belt for extra detailing.
Paired either with sneakers or sandals, this look will look very preppy yet casual, perfect for a student who’s headed back to school! 🙂 Sandals give a more casual, weekend look, while sneakers will make the outfit a lot more put-together.
And just to give it more of a school vibe, I’m using my tablet case as a handheld clutch, since these are very popular recently! With a bright color and cute patterns, even a tech accessory can be a fashion statement 🙂
