wannabe mermaid

August already? Summer, I'm gonna need you to stop flying by. You're my favorite season, and I just can't deal with the thought of you being more than halfway over.

Le sigh.

I guess this means that I'll just have to wear as many pretty, frilly, and feminine frocks as possible -- like this white knee-length number from H&M. I love the wide neckline that's a bit provocative without being too revealing. The flouncy sleeves are oh-so fun, and the subtle floral embroidery is a lovely detail that embodies girliness and youth. I imagine that if a mermaid had dresses in her wardrobe, this would definitely be one of them.

While I was bouncing around barefoot on South Beach, I can see this beauty working well with a pair of sky-high wedges or strappy lace-up sandals and gold accessories.

This dress is an absolute summertime favorite that you can wear over and over again and never grow tired of.

Oh sweet summer, just stay forever.
