Fake Out Summer with Midi Dresses

9:00 AM

Dress - Primark
Leather jacket - Topshop
Sneakers - Adidas

I have a confession. These pictures are actually from last month, so they don't exactly fit the season anymore. But, after my first post about my Adidas sneakers, I had a request to post different ways I was styling them - so here is one of them!

Though it's from the first half of May (just days after getting home from graduation, to be specific), I think the outfit unfortunately still fits the weather today. The heat just keeps coming and going and it's hard to get a good feel for summer when after a few days of sunshine, you get a couple chilly days of rain. That's actually exactly what happened with the weather that made me put this outfit together too.

The midi Primark dress actually has three-quarter sleeves as well, so those plus the leather jacket helped fight the dropping temperatures that day. And... as you can see, I still haven't gotten around to cleaning my sneakers from one of those nights at Our House.

Hope you are having more favorable weather than I am wherever you are! The countdown to summer continues...

  6. I totally get what you mean about the weather - I spent the first half of this week sunburned and now its practically back to winter! Fortunately Adidas trainers are versatile enough for these weather changes! I love how you've styled them in this look - trainers and midis are such a gorgeous mix! x

  8. I love the way you've styled your Adidas here, girlie, that midi dress looks amazing on you! We've been having the same weather here in New York, it's been in the low-mid 70s this week, which is pretty low for this time of year around here, where it would typically be somewhere in the 80s. Hopefully it'll warm up more for all of us! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!

  22. Cute outfit! It would really fit the weather where I am too, since it's gloomy-ish in the morning but it burns off nicely in the afternoon, so a dress is definitely wearable. Love how you paired it with the sneakers too - I love me some versatility :)
