I can’t believe summer’s end is nearing! Luckily, summer is pretty much year-round in California. What better way to stand the heat than in a lace bell-sleeve dress?! I discovered this beauty during a recent visit to Goodwill. (TIP: When thrifting, take your time, be patient, and sift through EVERYTHING. It can be time-consuming and frustrating (especially when you end up leaving empty-handed), but the search is well worth it when you find some really special pieces. Don’t give up!) Sheer excitement came over me when I laid my eyes on this Free People (one of my fave stores) -style dress. I adore how the sleeves flow in the breeze and how the dress dances when I twirl. I have so much fun wearing this and it definitely brought out the inner hippie in me!

I will be posting a weekly fashion blog each Wednesday night, so be sure to come back and check it out. Click the links above to get this look and feel free to email me any questions or new looks you’d like to see me in!
