Summertime sadness and a cute denim dress

I’m finding it hard to remember a summer where the days felt so long and the months so short. Every day feels like a countdown to the next event. Then, the event happens, and I can’t believe how quickly time is passing. I’ve got that summertime sadness.

These days I'm all about the denim and a denim dress is fun to wear. Here's how I'm wearing my favorite denim dress plus a few more to add to your wishlist.

ThisΒ Madewell denim dress (c/o Shopbop) made an appearance on the blog two years ago and is still a favorite. I had the straps shortened this summer so that I could wear it without a shirt underneath. Long straps are super annoying, and I can’t believe it took me this long to get the straps altered. It was definitely money well spent.

These days I’m all about the denim, and denim dresses are so fun to wear. I really like this denim overall dress because I can layer a tee underneath or top it with a cardigan when the weather gets chilly.

  1. This summer def. has flown by. I always feel like the summer is so slow until July 4th and then it really just flies by! I love that yellow bag and what a cute denim dress- I love that it has buttons.

  2. This really is the shortest summer. It’s not just my perspective, because it’s the summer before my youngest starts kindergarten, but it literally is the shortest. It’s the first year going back in August!
    Your dress is amazing. I bought myself a denim dress this morning to cheer myself up. We are twins.

  4. I know! I have summertime sadness too! I am not ready for it to go, but I can feel it in the air. Love the dress and am going to check out Shopbop for some new items!

  5. I love what you have done with this dress. I have a few go to tops that can be casual or dressy and are simply comfortable. As for Summertime sadness, I’m beginning to feel it. The weather here is becoming cooler and I’m not happy… not ready yet.

  6. I love the shades with denim- stylin’!

    Yes, my life as seen on a calendar is guided by events and appointments I must attend. I have learned to include fun time on my calendar as well!

  7. This denim dress looks so cute on you:) And yeah…I get the summertime blues every August, esp. if I’ve been having a great summer….sigh….

  8. I have a lot of summer time sadness right now. I worked the majority of the summer, especially on the weekends, so I feel like summer whizzed by and I don’t have much to show for it. This Madewell denim dress is crazy cute! Loving those comfy looking sandals also Ashley.

  9. Denim dresses give a fun throwback nineties vibe.

    Sorry that you’ve been feeling blue. I have been too- Summer Sadness is a good way to put it.
