summer fashion 2012: the hi-lo dress





Xhilaration dress, Tory Burch clutch (old) similar here and here, Steve Madden wedges (old) similar here, Prada sunglasses (old) similar here, MAC lipstick Costa Chic

Today was one of those perfect summer days when the sun shines nicely, meaning you should take out the sunscreen. But, don't worry beads of sweat won't be dripping down your face. So, I decided there was no time better than the present to show off my new hi-lo dress. I've been obsessing over the style for months, among an incredibly long list of trends. 

I met my favorite summer hi-lo dress in the Target foyer of sorts, where the big, red carts meet the overpowering aroma of Starbucks. I spotted the colors, forgot about the cart and the coffee and walked right over to pick my size. There was no need to try it on. Thought? Is my hi-lo dress really that captivating? 

I must say I take pride in this outfit for its thrifty-nature. Although I have some designer accessories, they're all old items I rediscovered to help out this cheap, but super cute dress!
