Spring is here, and so is the crappy weather! It has been raining everyday, which I don't mind as much as the humidity! I can not handle the stickiness and neither can my hair... So now is the perfect time to lose the pants. NOT completely. Dresses and shorts are perfect to wear when there's puddles everywhere. I don't know about you but I HATE walking around in wet clothing all day. So since were being all practical and everything, it's an excuse to try a new shift dress.
One thing to keep in mind when selecting clothes in this weather is fabric. Some fabric just traps moisture and leaves you feeling sticky all day. Cotton is breathable, easy to take care of and it's everywhere. Most dresses should already be a breathable fabric which makes it simple.
This shift dress was a find from my vacation a few weeks ago. I've been looking for a dress that has more coverage on top and is long enough (I'm 5'6 but everything's short). I feel like if it covers enough and is comfortable, I will actually wear it instead of letting it sit in my closet. I can easily wear this all day long and dress it up to go out at night. This shape is also perfect for many body types since it is loose throughout.
Since it was raining so much today my shoe selection was limited. (I didn't want to ruin my espadrilles that would have looked way better.) These brown/cognac sandals are old but I will link similar ones. I wear these a lot in the summer since this color goes with everything including black. I highly suggest getting cognac in shoes or handbags since you will get so much use out of it. This is a perfect neutral that's an alternative to black for the summer.
Let me know in the comments if you found a dress you love this spring and where you found it!
Thanks for reading!
The dress shown is from the GAP Factory Outlet. It should still be available but not online. (Factory items are made for the factory store so they are not available at their GAP store locations. This goes for most outlets!) Try the outlet first since it's a good price and I could not find a match that's really close
This Kate Spade one is on sale:
