Summertime in Texas is well, brutal to say the least! In Dallas, it is usually around 90 degrees and dressing for the unbearable Texas heat can sometimes be a challenge! I always love to wear dresses during the summertime because they are definitely more breathable and I’ll take any relief I can from this Texas heat that I can. In case you didn’t realize, I am always on the hunt for a good bargain, especially when it comes to cute dresses. I recently stopped by Zara, and they are having a HUGE sale, and I mean HUGE. Shoes were $15, dresses were $30, and the list goes on and on! While I was shopping I came across a couple of dresses from Zara that were lightweight, easy, and breezy, and could easily go from day to night with a quick shoe change! SO I had to buy them, but DON’T FRET, I didn’t buy them in August (see my last post about no shop August).
The first dress that I purchased was from Zara and was only $30! You might be able to find it for cheaper, since it is currently on sale at Zara, however it wasn’t available on their website so you might be able to find it at your local store. Even though it wasn’t on their website, I found a few similar dresses by Commando , Frame, and Spendid. While they aren’t exactly the same, you can attain the same look with a simple navy dress an tan lace-up heels. You can find these cute lace-up, Steve Madden shoes at Nordstrom Rack, and best part is, they are also on sale for only $33! Lace-up heels, flats, and wedges are very on trend right now, and since it is the end of the season, you can find most of them on sale as you can see with these Candie shoes for only $24, and fun tassel Revolve shoes for only $85. My earrings are gold ball studs from H&M and you can find them here. You can get 25 sets of earrings for only $12.99! And they are great basics that include gold, silver, and black circle studs that will go with just about everything!
My other look, which I have featured on my Instagram , is also a Zara dress and the best part, I paid under $30 for this comfortable, boho dress. Again, unfortunately, it is sold out, however I found a few dresses that are similar from Antropologie , Revolve, and Nordstrom. The earrings are from Baublebar and you can find them here and for only $36! These earrings come in a variety of different colors so you can find a pair to go with whatever outfit you are wearing! They are super cute, lightweight, and add flair and color to any outfit. The shoes are the same Steve Madden shoes from the first outfit. As you can see, I LOVE them, and they go with a variety of different looks!
Remember, it’s no shop August (see my last post) for me, so while I wont be purchasing anything new, I will be finding similar looks to what I am wearing and what I already have in my closet. This is going to be a challenge!
For my next couple of blog posts, I’m going to be talking about dating in Dallas! Get excited! AND I am going to attempt to do at least one fashion post a week. So get excited for that as well!
