In the penultimate of my August challenge posts, here are some dresses and skirts!

Most recently worn: Casual black (in my case, navy) summer (in my case transitional) dress.

This Ralph Lauren cotton sweater dress doesn't get enough wear because it's an awkward weight for my climate -- too warm for summer and not warm enough for winter. It's good for spring (with a topper) or fall. But it was perfect for a cooler, cloudy afternoon at the AC mall. Later on I put on a jacket to go pick up my daughter from an event.

This outfit feels so retro to me somehow. I don't know what era I am evoking here, but whatever it is, I liked wearing this.

Next up, my attempt at a handkerchief hem dress with modern footwear. This was a bit tricky because I don't own a handkerchief hem dress and I forgot the modern footwear. Oh well. My version is a hi-low hem and older sandals. What the heck.

I had a similar problem with the MOTG maxi skirt outfit. I don't do maxis. Ha! So my version is a midi-tube skirt. I got this charcoal VC skirt during NAS.

Gingham! I did a few versions. The Loft top was an absolute workhorse for me this summer. I love the narrow V of the neckline and the dolman sleeve.

I have two July 4th inspired outfits: one I wore on July 1st, and one more recently.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the ensemble FAILS.
