Black Summer Prints

I usually try and avoid wearing too much black … especially in the summer.  But there are a number of fun black-summertime-prints that I just couldn’t resist!

This hi-lo maxi dress (Target) has been with me for a few summers now – don’t look too closely, as you’ll see the black bits fading due to wash and wears.  It’s one of my easy-peasy-favourite pieces.

Being petite (short) the train of this dress does sometimes cause me  trouble.  I’ve been known to trip up the stairs in this dress and also had a horrible experience with an escalator that nearly ended this dress’ life!  Luckily, I managed to rescue and repair it and keep it among my summertime wardrobe still 🙂

Since the dress has a giant pattern with solid black boarders, I added a pops of colour with my coral purse (Aldo) and bright green stoned earrings (Stella & Dot), plus my stroppy gold & white sandals (Le Chateau) plus my vintage cat-eye sunnies to keep the looks casual for weekend wear of errands and city roaming.
