Favorite Summer Go-To Looks.

My go-to Summer Look at least for the last couple of Summers (as today's two outfits will tell you) is a Summer Dress (strapless, spaghetti-strapped, sleeveless, with cap or short sleeves) topped with a Denim Jacket. I switch it for my Denim Vest sometimes, but I still do the Denim Jacket more because it is more versatile. I live in a city where Summer mornings are mildly cool, the daytime until afternoon is usually very hot - even muggy - and evenings are quite chilly. So layering with a Full-Sleeve Denim Jacket on top of a Light Summer Dress is a perfect go-to-look! I usually wear Sandals, Flats and Wedges with this type of Summer Uniform. Lately, I have tried the big sneaker trend with Cute Bright or Patterned Sneakers and white Chucks. As far as jewelry I like to accessorize with a Colorful or Statement Necklace and a few Fun Colored Bracelets. Easy-Breezy Scarves, Hats like a Fedora and Sunglasses are optional - it depends on the weather. The second Outfit today, is quite patriotic too with the turquoise blue, red and white from the Floral Dress. What is a Summer go-to Look for you? I am linking mine with the ladies from Create 28.

  6. Denim jackets are the perfect throw on jacket for any dress especially for summer, you look great in both of these Ada :)

  7. Love both of these dresses on you! I used to always wear shorts in the summer, but dresses have become my new favorite! Hope you're having a great week!

  8. Beautiful dresses! The first one I like how you styled it with a hat, so flirty look! And the second has an awesome print, so summery and joyful! As summers are really hot in my place I can't do any layering really.

  9. I love how you threw a jean jacket over the top of this look, Ada! Great choice!

  10. I love how you use denim jacket to add that investing layer to your dresses. Very chic! My summer go to outfit probabale have to be tees and shorts. I love being comfy. ;)

    Have a great day Ada and take care!


  11. You seriously look like you are having so much fun in these pictures!

    1. Hahahahaa, it does doesn't it? My little half-broken camera wasn't cooperating much, especially in the second set of outfit photos so I was trying to stay positive and make the best of it. I am hoping to buy a new, much nicer camera very soon once I am in the States.

  12. Denim jacket is a staple in my closet too - love all the pretty dresses!

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week. Have a great weekend!


  13. Dresses and a denim jacket are such a good go-to look!

  14. Even though my featured "go-to" look was a maxi with a denim vest, my favorite summer look is really any dress with either a denim vest or jacket depending on the weather. We are TOTALLY on the same page!

  15. Denim jackets are such a wardrobe staple! I put them over everything! Love the way they look with your dresses!
