Coldplay – A Sky Full Of Stars
This post features this absolutely adorable short sleeved powder color dress. The shade of this dress is even nicer in person and I love how nice and clean it looks. The subtle yet beautiful detailing – the opening and button on top – is everything this dress needs as it’s all about simplicity with this one. Because of its sophisticated look, it’s perfect for summer parties, weddings, baptisms, even work, as well as any other formal occasions. I paired it up with a pair of beige sandals and a white crossbody bag. Because of the simplicity of this dress, you can easily dress it up with a nice pair of earrings and some bracelets but I decided to keep it the way it is with no additional jewelry.
Sandals – almost identical here
Here are some other beige sandals that would go perfectly with the dress:
It’s not the first time that I buy something and want to wear it right away! I bought this pair of blush shorts just yesterday and voila, I’m wearing them today. I love this color because it’s so light and delicate. You can barely tell the color is actually pink. I paired it with the white and black top, a white bag and beige sandals.
These sandals are so comfortable. I bought them last year and here is another look I posted wearing them. The heel is perfect for someone that does not like big heels, but still would like some kind of elevation. The wide strap around the ankle looks pretty cool and modern if you ask me!
For the accessories of the day, I chose this black and silver bracelet I’ve had for years now but rarely wear, and the blush/lavender pair of earrings to go along with the shorts.

It’s rare that I wear something the day after I originally buy it, but today the temperatures skyrocketed to the low 80s. It was just a perfect day to wear this dress. It’s a linen dress, so in the heat it is a little easy to get wrinkled (as you can see from the pictures). But it’s such a comfortable dress, perfect length, open shoulders that, besides the wrinkling part, I can’t complain much. Plus, it was a deal for $10 from the original price of $34! What an occasion!
The sandals are from last year. If you go back to my last summer posts, I wore them pretty much all the time. That’s why I like buying tan/beige shoes because they go with any outfit. Plus, these are slip ons, so comfortable!
For my accessories, I chose a mint color bracelet that I thought was a nice contrast to the yellow stripes. My ring and earrings are from Rocksbox. I’m obviously putting the subscription to good use! Just a reminder, if you want to try your first month free, use this code: glamorglossxoxo.

I wear a lot of light colors during summer so I’m always on the lookout for tan or beige sandals that pretty much go with any other colors. These are my absolute favorite finds! Some of these are really affordable, and some, well, I will put it on the “maybe one day” wish list. Here is the whole list. Start from top left and go on to the right.

This dress is one of my favorite dresses for summer. One, because I love stripes, two, because the colors are bright and three, it’s made of a light fabric, so it’s very cool on a hot day. The neckline is very pretty too and the buttons are cute embellishments to this seemingly simple dress. Seemingly, because there is a lot of going on with the stripes running in diverging directors, as well as the other things I mentioned above.
I paired this dress with beige sandals and bag. (Details below)
I have a perfect bracelet to wear with this dress as well. It’s also peach in color and is as chic as the dress itself, in my opinion.
As you can see in these pictures, I’m wearing different sandals. These are actually flat ones, but it shows how versatile this dress can be. You can either wear it with more fancy sandals that would give you a showy, more sophisticated type of look (perfect for a party), or pair it with a casual pair of sandals to go shopping, for example.
