I've been on a self-imposed shopping "diet" since summer started. I'm making an effort to be more creative with wearing what is already in my closet (this outfit is proof), and keeping myself occupied with other things (like cooking) so that I'm not shopping. It's not to say that I don't buy anything. But the things I do buy are items I believe will stand the test of time and allow me to wear for years to come.

To say I love this dress is an understatement. There was a week where I wore it three times because it's the perfect breezy, flowy piece of clothing I want to wear in the heat of summer. I paired the dress with these Sam Edelman sandals I scored at Nordstrom Rack in downtown Seattle when I was there last week for Jay-Z and Beyonce's concert. The shoes were promptly broken in after dancing all night in them (and walking an hour after the concert trying to catch a cab back to the hotel - ouch!).

I'm literally on the run today. Eleanor and I are headed out the door on a mini road trip to Seattle to catch Jay-Z and Beyonce's On the Run tour tonight! Coincidentally, this is almost exactly what we did one year ago. Be sure to check my Instagram for my snaps from the concert!

Summer arrived in full force this week and I'm staying cool in this cutesy romper and my go-to Panama hat. I don't wear black very often in the summer but it works when it's lightened up with natural, textured accessories and a pop of colour. How do you wear black for summer?
