Otte Red Ellen Dress 4

Even though summer is coming to an end, you’d never know it here in New York. This past weekend was hot, hot, hot, and crazy humid! It’s times like these that I absolutely live for my little silk dresses. The Ellen dress from Otte is sort of my everything. I bought the black dress earlier this year (I wore it in this post) and found myself wearing it constantly. It’s great for the office, happy hour, first dates… really, every possible occasion. I ended up buying it in two more colors (Chilli and Ocean) and didn’t regret it for a second… my rule is that if I love something that much, I buy it in multiples. You’re never sad about having too many of your favorite dress.

  8. I do this same exact thing! I just bought three pairs of the same jeans in different washes. I’m not normally drawn to red, but this color is amazing!

  9. Girl, red is your color! I wear my Otte Ellen in black almost once a week in the summer and my roommates are obsessed with borrowing it. Can’t agree more about what a good purchase it is!

  11. What a perfect light yet bold summer dress! I absolutely love that longer length too – very flattering. Adore the small heel on the sandals too.

  13. A little silk dress sounds amazing right now! I love how versatile these items can be – it’s so easy to throw on a cardigan and mix it up with flats or boots. Cute!

    Warm Regards,
