I took full advantage of the warm weather last week in Wisconsin! (Is that an oxymoron “warm weather & Wisconsin?” Haha.) I’m kind of enjoying switching between my summer and winter wardrobe all within a week. There are so many fun options for clothing, then! And it’s certainly feeling like winter in Rosario today…I was wearing boots and a warm coat! (All within a week of taking these photos.)

Anyways, back to this outfit I wore last week when the weather was lovely! This dress was one I had bought just before Christmas. It kept selling out every time I went to buy it…it’s an elusive little bugger! But, just before the holidays it came back in stock + was on sale! I was so excited. I really loved the color and the short sleeves. (I had featured it in this here winter post, but it was buried underneath a scarf.)

Unfortunately, this dress is sold out once again. (Told you it was elusive!) But I did link to a similar dress below (or see it here). It’s not an exact match, but it’s pretty darn close. And it would certainly be a better option for summer. While I do love this dress, it is just too thick for summer. I was sweating like crazy the day I wore it! (Just running errands and stopping to visit my dad that day.)

Being home was also a good excuse to break out some of my fun purses again! I miss using this fun camera purse all the time. But I don’t feel terribly comfortable using such a noticeable purse in Rosario. (We have a bit of a petty theft problem here.) I haven’t had any issues yet, but I’ve heard enough stories that I would just rather not take the risk. So, I’ll save my quirky purses for when I’m home! 🙂

    Such a pretty vintage style dress. I also appreciate your Wisconsin comment since I live here. We get a few days of heat scattered here and there, but it always seems summer is over before it begins.

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you so much! Haha, oh yes, Wisconsin’s summers are usually over before they begin. So glad to have found another fellow Wisconsinite! 🙂

  6. It is a beautiful dress! Too bad it’s so warm, but maybe it would work great for fall and spring weather. 🙂

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you, Laurie! And of yes, it would be perfect for fall and spring! It’s really nice layered in the winter too. 🙂

  7. This is SO cute! I love the yellow, it suits you perfectly, but the vintage inspiration of the cut is so pretty! I have a friend who lives in Wisconsin, so I know just how cold and snowy it is most of the time, ha ha. And yep! I’ve had luck getting sold out pieces a few times, but only because I am super persistent!

  8. Oh my gosh, what a cute dress! No wonder it’s always selling out! I also love the flowers surrounding you – what a perfectly bright and summery location!!!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw, thank you! My mom’s flower gardens look amazing right now! I had to snap some picks by them when I was back. 🙂

  9. You are persistent, Lindsey!! I always just give up, and figure that I’ll find something else!! But it is the perfect dress, so great job!!
