summer wardrobe essentials


I am such a sucker for online shopping. It’s way more convenient. Right??? I’m not sure if it saves me money, but it sure saves me time. I just read a blog post {I can’t remember who’s blog post… so sorry} regarding the impulse buying that we execute after seeing a cute outfit on someone on Pinterest or Instagram.

Ahh, I’m totally guilty. When I began blogging, I quickly found it necessary to implement a few questions to ask myself before purchasing anything. Regardless, if it is cheap or high end, I don’t like to waste money especially now that I’m on a cash budget.

Question 1: Will I wear this more than a couple of times??
Question 2: Will I still love it next year??
Question 3: Is this 100% my style??

If it isn’t 100% my style, that honest response will help answer questions 1 and 2.


Well, I’m not sure about you, ladies, BUT I absolutely love to wear dresses especially comfortable dresses. I believe that they are a summer wardrobe essential. It’s worth it for me to invest in a few options each season. I always love a good striped dress, a basic grey or white t-shirt dress, and a couple of trendy styles. If I add a few cute dresses to my wardrobe, it will make picking out outfits so much easier. And, to be honest, we have intense summer heat in Louisiana so dresses are my favorite choice.

How cute is this off the shoulder dress?? This floral pattern and tassels were screaming my name. This darlin’ dress is from Heart and Sole Boutique which is a local New Orleans boutique.


Heart and Sole Boutique has so many cute, trendy dresses and tops to choose from that it was hard for me to narrow it down to my favorites. Check out their Facebook page and Instagram for some of their latest merchandise.

Also, these dashing, Prada sunnies are on loan with my monthly subscription with Ditto. If you want to try it out, use code DASHINGDARLIN for a one month free trial. I’ve had so much fun switching out designer sunnies each week without killin’ my budget. You will love it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!! Hope that you have a lovely day.






  • I love the sleeves on the dress. So glad that bell sleeves are back in fashion. I’m such a sucker for a cute dress in the summer, too!

  • I so agree with this! Online shopping is such an impulsive yet satisfying cycle I’m always finding myself in. I love how you broke it down to get the most out of your shopping. And this dress is stunning… those sleeves!!

  • I LOVE that dress, and I also love your three online shopping questions — I’m so guilty of impulsive online shopping, so I need to implement your question idea 🙂

  • love your dress!!
    I haven’t done much online shopping. Though to be honest there’s not many good options in Canada. Usually the shipping cost made it not worth it. But now that I’m in the states… probably a good thing I don’t have a list of shops to shop at 🙂
