A Dark Floral Midi Dress for Summer

July 26, 2017


a dark floral dress to wear during summer or fall - M Loves M @marmarI mentioned in my Instagram last night that I’m seeing fall mentioned everywhere. In food magazines they’re talking about pumpkin spice, home blogs are talking about autumn tablescapes, and craft stores are selling items for Halloween. {What?!} I am not ready! It doesn’t help that the biggest sale of the year is going on right now and it’s all about fall too! Yes, it’s the perfect time to buy items that will go up for the next season, but I’m still wanting to relish in my summer dresses, eat big slices of cold watermelon, and enjoy sandy beach days! Anyone else?

Today I’m styling a dark floral midi dress for summer, but yes, you can wear it in fall too!

you have to get this dark floral wrap dress! It's on sale! cold shoulder wrap dress on Los Angeles blogger M Loves M love this tory burch blush tote bag! It fits everything! belting a dress for effortless summer style this cold shoulder dress is also a wrap dress!

This floral dress is so pretty and great for summer with the cold shoulder detail. I love that it also has a wrap dress style on the skirt which makes it nice and flowy. And yes, you could totally wear it for fall too. Imagine it with a knit cardigan and some ankle boots! Ok, that makes me look forward to fall. Just a little bit!

Hope you all are having a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!

    • Aww thanks Mich! Dark florals are so much fun to mix and match!

  • This dress looks great one you! I can see it working in pretty much any season even in November for Thanksgiving. I too am not ready to read or see anything fall, let alone make fall recipes. I usually wait until October first to get into fall, I like to think of September as Indian Summer. Although I have been shopping fall sweaters and booties during the nsale, I couldn’t resist. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos.

    • Thanks so much Sharon! I know, I try not to allow myself too many fall dreams when it’s still so hot here in LA! I feel like Fall doesn’t truly hit here until December! So glad you’ve been splurging on some Fall items regardless 🙂

      Thanks Sharon!

    This dark floral dress is gorgeous!! I really love how it can be worn both seasons: summer and fall. There is no way I want to give up florals during Fall haha. Another amazing dress Mara!


    • Right!? I love those versatile pieces that I can get excited about all over again when the season changes! So glad you like it Rach!

    You are looking so gorgeous and glam-chic in this outfit! Talking about Fall and all Fall related, with all due respect to media and shops, I’m refusing to start talking about Fall or start preparing for it, I have been waiting on Summer so much that I will still stay in full on Summer mood for a little bit longer. 🙂


    • Thanks so much Natali! I know, I’m usually on that same train of thought when it comes to talking about Fall too early, but with all the Nsale ankle booties I can’t help but dream ahead 🙂 Get as much Summer as you can girl!

  • I love this dress! Absolutely adorable! I am actually really looking forward to Autumn already… can’t wait for PSL season!



    • I’m looking forward to autumn too!! I can’t believe it but it’s true!!

  • I agree, I want to enjoy summer for as long as I can! I like autumn but my favourite season is summer.

    Lovely pics. 🙂

    I’m loving the dark floral look. I think I just might have to add this dress to my collection! (Plus I already have the perfect pair of ankle booties to pair with it!)
