Hey gals! (and any guys who may be reading....) WHERE DID SUMMER GO?!? I'm sure I say this every year, but this year really flew by. And not in a good way. It was like I blinked and both June and July were gone. At least we still have August. Ah, August...hot, sticky days and warm nights. Perfect for a swing dress! I happened upon a fun new (to me) store in a nearby mall called Garage. Lots of trendy pieces at reasonable prices and in materials that looked like they wouldn't fall apart after one wash. I ended up walking out with this dress and a similarly patterned romper (don't judge...I have what I call "color moments" and end up buying EVERYTHING in one color scheme for a while. Right now it's black & white.) Anyhoo, the swing factor is what really sold me on this dress - not to mention the soft fabric and the great back cutout. When it's over 90 degrees, chances are my crazy thick hair is gonna be piled on top of my head. It's nice to have a little extra detail in the back to pull things together.
Almost all the pieces I'm wearing today are no longer available, but I worked hard to find similar or in some cases exact items for you style-hunters out there!
