Hanging onto Summer with Wooden Platform Clogs & Floral Lace-Up Dress

Hanging onto Summer with Wooden Platform Clogs & Floral Lace-Up Dress

Styling Wooden Platform Clogs with a Floral Lace-Up Summer Dress

Seeing fashion bloggers currently posting outfits on Instagram with long coats & wooly sweaters is kinda getting me down.

Not to mention making my brain melt! For all intents and purposes, there's still a heat wave out there. Well, at least in Toronto!

The sun is shining, humidity levels are high & I don't see anyone wearing a jacket. So….can't we just hang onto summer for a little bit longer?

Shop the Outfit:


I mean, summer doesn't technically end until Fall has officially began, right? Let's remember that that date is on Sept 21st, ladies!

But what gets me excited about end of the Spring/Summer season, are the massive sales happening online & in store. So it's actually in your financial interest to think more Summer than Fall right now, ha!

That way, you can pick up cute shoes such as these wooden platform clogs by Nine West (great for Spring to Fall!) and some flirty summer dresses at amazing clearance prices. I know I'm always snooping around for great deals at this time of year, especially when it comes to high heels 🙂

In terms of fashion, I love to get my Anthropologie fix at the end of every season. Items at this store are particularly high for non designer clothes, so snagging a summer dress way under the original price-tag is always exciting!

I love this floral printed, lace-up front shift dress by Tracy Reese. The floral print is beautiful & the dress is made of cotton, not poly-blend crap, so it feels as cool as it is comfortable. The print, fit & lace up front detail were the top selling points!

The was on sale in stores under $15 at Zara, but I've linked to some comparable alternatives in the slider above!

Check out my other summer outfit featuring these Nine West patent wooden platform clogs, over yonder!

Those wooden clog sandals really add to the style that you are sporting. I've always favored clogs and clog sandals for both my wife and me, mainly due to the comfort they offer.

The block heel and platform definitely eliminate the feeling about how high these clogs really are! And most importantly, I just love the look! xo Cristina

Those black clogs really look good. Nothing extra and you still can’t take your eyes off of it. My wife recently got a pair of very similar clogs from Maguba and they are good for the price. May I know how much did these cost?

I believe these are roughly $35 CAN at the moment. Marked way down from the original price of 190, I believe it was!

I've actually seen these trending and other serious platform block heels at the moment but if I wore them I would probably be able to reach the skies. I'm 5.7" but REALLY tempted! Love how you styled these. Still grungy but also very girly with your summer vibes. Xx

Thanks lady! Yes, you would add about 5 inches to your height, so you would be TALL! I'm 5'5", so I'm over 6 feet in them lol and I love it. xo Cristina

I'm with you on hanging onto what's left of summer. I'll admit, I have bought some pieces for fall, but I'm NOT wearing them yet. Looking at some bloggers wearing thick sweaters and leather jackets makes me sweat!
