Hello fashionista mamas! Back with another post shot in Barcelona earlier this summer. I love looking at the photos and remembering the fun days we spent there.
Casual Cocktail Dress
If you like being dressed in black, summer cocktail attire poses a challenge. Black is sophisticated, but it can look to heavy and ominous for summer. This Sandro tight-fitting jersey dress struck the right balance by adding white and beige stripes in a fun pattern, giving the dress some rays of light. Another way to handle black for summer is to pair it with beige or white shoes and a light-colored bag. Since we were headed to a rooftop restaurant, I also added a light beige shawl.
I love the original twist on the classic “little black dress.”
I was so happy about stepping out that I didn’t notice the colored garbage bins on our little street. Oops!After a short drive, we met up with some good friends for dinner. Here’s the view from our restaurant.I miss our lovely Barcelona friends and evenings like this spent overlooking the rooftops, enjoying yummy wine, and feeling good and easy about life. Sigh! Thanks to my sweetie aka Marc for snapping this shot.Thanks for reading.
Any outfit that involves a skirt, a dressy top plus a comfortable pair of wedges is what I wear for a Summer night out.
Sounds lovely, Tiff! Love me a cute pair of wedges!
I love this dress. We live in Florida, so for summer nights out I need something very light weight. I tend to go for maxi dresses or skirts. Anything tight fitting makes it seem hotter to me.
I completely agree! Love maxi dresses and skirts for summer!
Super cute and breezy dress!
Maxi dresses are my favorite for summer. Very nice dress, you look very pretty.
These dresses remind me of the ones I wore years ago only more trendy.
Love maxi dresses so classy and don’t show my legs!

Very cute for summer! (I think I actually like this one better than the white/cream one with the lace/ruffles).
