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! 🙂

  1. I love your beautiful dress. Right colour for summer and it emphasize perfectly your figure… You look lovely and smart.

  2. Persistence pays off ! Alas, I do not possess it ! That purse is wayyy tooo cute and pretty much made for me!

    1. Aw, thank you! Isn’t this purse fun? It was a fabulous Christmas gift from my mother-in-law. 🙂

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

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

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

  5. 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!

    1. Aw, thank you, Lorna! And that’s so cool you have a friend who lives in Wisconsin! Glad to hear you’ve had luck getting sold out pieces too. 🙂

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

  7. 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!!
