Made in the Shade | On-Sale Summer Frock from Madewell

While my phone is no longer alerting me of an excessive  heat warning, it is still hot and humid in the Gateway City. September can’t come soon enough.

At this point in the summer, it’s silly to buy certain warm-weather items. I meant to buy a bikini, but I never got around to it; unless I found the ideal 2015 suit on super-sale, I’m not going to buy one now—the swimming season is practically over. Sun dresses, however, are still completely relevant. It’s too hot to wear clothing that sticks to your legs, and in a few weeks it will be too cold for bare legs. The perfect sun dress looks just as great with tights and boots as it does with shades and sandals, and this new (on sale!) Madewell option fits the bill.

In case you live in a low-humidity area, let me explain the very real cloudiness in the first photo: It’s so humid outside that my camera lens fogged up when we stepped out.


Wipe away the humidity, and…

I was lucky enough to get this beautiful dress practically free, thanks to Madewell and Lindsay from Heartland Underdog. Lindsay recently hosted a shopping party at Madewell, at which I was one of the lucky winners who scored a $50 Madewell gift card. Thank you, Lindsay and Madewell! I had so much fun finding this frock, which was marked down from $110 to $79.99, and then was an extra 30% off. I also took home two new scarves from the sale section, both of which I’m loving as headbands. Picking out these items was a great start to the long weekend.

Off to sip cold cocktails and enjoy the air conditioning…
