It’s not even technically summer, and I felt myself getting stuck in a bit of a style rut.
If you’re new here, I love wearing prints and color. Like, a lot. It’s my thing. However, while I was in the process of packing up my boxes for the big move, I noticed that all of my summer clothes that I’ve been purchasing recently look like a crazy printed color explosion when they’re all put together. Also, I’ve managed to pick up three different yellow printed dresses this spring. Whaaat.
I wanted to kick off the official start of summer with something easy and breezy. I’ve heard really amazing things about Everlane, and I even went to an event of theirs during NYFW last February. However, I never had the chance to snag one of their pieces until now — and y’all, I’m hooked. Disclaimer: this dress was a gift, however, I was not obligated to write about it at all. But I ended up loving this summer essential ever since the moment I tried it on, and even though I’ve had this dress for about 2 weeks now, I’ve worn it out and about 3 times (whoops!)
I’m a sucker for dresses that you can just throw on and head out the door in the summer. This dress is amazing because you can easily dress it up or down. It looks great with a pair of flat sandals and funky accessories for daytime, and fabulous with a sleek pair of stilettos and a killer clutch for date night. It does come in a few other colors, and TBH, I might pick it up in the ‘rose’ shade if it ever comes back in stock in my size.
What’s your favorite summer essential staple?
