Downtown Demure in Amani ya Juu

As I stated in my last outfit post, I’m still in denial that summer has nearly come to an end. Since I don’t understand where it went (seriously, where did those precious three months go?!), I’m hanging on dearly to the last precious week of summer before Fall gets REAL (aka, after Labor Day weekend). Thankfully I have some aid in my delusion in the form of this gorgeous flowy maxi from Mode-sty. What I love most about this dress is not its versatile and flattering cut and color that makes it an ideal summer-to-fall dress or even the snazzy rhinestone buttons. What I LOVE about this dress is that it’s just SO easy to wear. Just throw it on and go. Those are my favorite kind of dresses (as I’ve stated before, I’m actually a pretty lazy dress at heart). In fact, I’ve thrown on this dress on so many times since I received it from the shop owner Zahra that it’s currently in the cleaners for some necessary TLC. This gorgeous dress isn’t available on Mode-sty.com yet, but I’ll be sure to update this post when it is (so you can snatch it up before it’s completely sold out).

      Your comment made me blush! I don’t know that I deserve such high praise, but I’m so thankful for your sweet words, Leticia! I’m 5’3 (I’m wearing flats in the pics). If you’re taller, it will look even better on you!

    What an elegant dress! I love the hat and patterned clutch you added. Great outfit. So sad to see summer go! But, fall is also awesome, so I’m excited about that haha.

    Wow, that dress is so pretty and you look gorgeous in it!!! Glad to see the other comment that you are 5’3 because I wondered the same thing! I’m the same height and have issues with long dresses being WAY too long.

      I have the same struggle, Kaitlin! Honestly, any dress that is too long I take to my tailor to get it hemmed for $9. Just a little tailoring really transforms a dress!
