Okay, let’s be honest… when it comes to my personal style, stripes are in all year! I just can’t help myself. I’m DRAWN to these types of dresses. Found this little gem at Banana Republic in an impromptu shopping spree (that’s a real thing, I promise) and I absolutely had to have it. I have all of the love for midi dresses, showing just a little bit of leg as the dress hits right below the knee. This side zip piece is fitted at the waist, chest and shoulders. Yes, shoulders! It comes with straps, too! Paired it with one of my most comfortable sandals from Aldo that I’ll probably rock for the next 2 years if my soles allow me!
I just can’t get over how fun this dress is and how perfectly made it is for summer events! Here in New Orleans, it FEELS like the majority of our events are held outside during the hottest months. Why is that? Something I’ll never understand after the 27 years I’ve lived here. I guess it’s just an excuse to get together with friends and roam the streets with a cocktail in hand. Yes, we do that a lot here! I’ll just make sure I keep a mini fan in my pocket to cool me down. Yep, you read right! POCKETS. This dress is just filled with surprises!
