To go with the bright blue dress, that I knew I was going to wear as soon as I decided to do a summer dress outfit I went with a little less conventional shoe, those combat boots I bought on a Nordstrom shoe buy, and I think I've finally figured out how to wear them. I zip them all the way up and fold them half way down but tuck in the tongue a little so it doesn't flap out. Since it's sunny and I tend to squint and make my eyes look terrible when it's sunny (evidence of squinting, more evidence of squinting) I decided to add those bohemian print sunglasses that you've seen before. To finish it off, I added my silver and sapphire bracelet because it's such a close match to the dress color, and I love the little extra feminine detail.
The only problem I have with this Pacsun dress is the back of it. It looks very cute hanging up, but the only type of bra that it can be worn with is one of those strapless backless ones, because otherwise both the straps and the back will show even if you go wear a cross-back bra. It's pretty annoying. Oh and that last picture was actually the first one I took, but my dog Checkers kept getting in the way so I decided to move to a different spot. I had to show you guys this one though because it actually looks like she's posing.Be sure to check out Lyndsey's post summer dress-ing | a collaboration she's super sweet and has a great sense of style
