Looking chic at the “End of Summer Luau”

Say goodbye to summer

The annual Luau signals the end of summer. I look forward to it (so much fun!) but dread it as well, because it means those long, lazy days gossiping by the pool with my girls are over for another year.

This year I wanted to glam it up a bit over my standard cotton sundress. So when I found this strapless, embroidered sheath, I knew it was perfect! Best of all, the dress is now on sale at The French Connection for $179.99 (was $228.00).

The dress is such a stunner, that I’ve paired it with very plain Steve Madden wedges in white and some simple Betsey Johnson hoop earrings. For a more upscale occasion, you might add strappy sandals — but remember to let the dress shine and keep jewelry and other details to a minimum.

Of course, this event is a Luau, so I just had to add a flower to tuck behind my ear! Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone!
