The fall-weather glimpse we got a few weeks ago was definitely short lived. This past week and weekend, LA saw temps back up in the 90s…much to my dismay. But, rather than sitting inside with the AC cranked up enough to warrant a sweater, blanket and cup of hot cocoa, I decided to bring out a bright summer-y dress for its (most-likely) final appearance of 2012.

With its easy, Grecian-style silhouette and asymmetrical lines, this dress is always a winner for sunny days and warm nights. However, it’s the strikingly rich color that really makes it stand out. Soaked in an almost-aqua hue that’s anything but bland, the shade of this frock projects optimism and confidence…making it an instant pick-me-up. A few Midas touches are all I need to finish this effortless ensemble; I chose a hammered cuff with draped fringe chains and glimmering gold flat sandals. The result? A carefree look that revels in the endless summer.

How would you style this dress? Let me know in the comments!
