I've been holding on to this post for a few weeks now, and I can now say I've been living in this dress all season. It's lightweight and breathable but not sheer, and basically made for a pop of color. "Living in this dress" is also something I never thought I would say—I've always been a blue jeans girl, rain or shine, hot or cold. Maybe there's something to getting older, embracing femininity, or feeling confident in oneself that's made room in my wardrobe. Whatever it is, dresses have been a welcome addition in these long, July, dog days of summer. I didn't even have to dress this one down with sneakers...although I still can't leave the house without bike shorts on underneath. No Marilyn Monroe moments for this girl, please.
