Labor Day has always traditionally been known as the farewell to Summer, so today’s look embraces Summer to the fullest with this African print dress and flowers basket. It sadly already getting cold in New York, so this really is the last Summer look I’ll be publishing on the blog this season. This is a great Labor Day outfit as the dress is easy breezy, and perfect for both BBQs and as a pool cover-up. I love the eclectically colorful print, open back, and bowtie detail in the front.

For a vacation-holiday vibe, I paired the dress with a big wide-brim hat and lace-up sandals. Instead of a traditional handbag, I decided to with a straw basket and put flowers in it for a feminine touch. I also layered two delicate necklaces to complete the look. And now I’m off to eat my weight in BBQ!
