- Outfits

Cool casual looks are perfect for weekends during the summer.  As much as I love summer, I also have to fight with the humidity and heat of the Midwest when dressing for outdoor occasions.  I am perfectly happy walking around in a maxi dress with light layers, like this DIY fringed top (I just chopped up an older tank top that was too short on me anyway) and a pair of comfy booties, otherwise the humidity can really get to me!  I practically live in breezy dresses all summer for weekend looks!  The booties add just the right touch of ruggedness and make this outfit ideal for flea markets, outdoor concerts and walks downtown!

Hope everyone is having an amazing Memorial Day weekend!!!!!!

    This top is such a cute idea! It’s perfect with this dress! Can you make me one? I’ll pay you in sushi and wine 🙂
