The Perfect Summer Dress

While I have claimed this about other dresses in the past, I really do think I have finally found the perfect summer dress, which would be this colorful rainbow stripe maxi dress! This dress has everything I look for when it comes to a summer dress: color, comfort and the ability to keep me cool! Last year, J. Crew came out with a similar style of maxi dress, which I also purchased but I think I like this one even better! (Come to think of it, I think the title of that post was also "The Perfect Summer Dress" or something along those lines!) Also, I think I finally got the fit right on this one thanks to reading the reviews and consulting a friend on Instagram with the same dress. These dresses seem to run a little big so I sized down to a size XS in this and the fit was perfect!

While this dress might be perfection, one thing that was less than perfect was this location, although you probably can't tell from the photos. When my first choice for a location failed due to less than ideal lighting, I opted for this one is in front of a building, probably from the 1920s, that I sometimes use for photos. On this occasion, someone had dumped several mattresses that looked very old and very dirty against the side of the building. Luckily, my husband was very careful not to get them in my photos! When we were driving away, a man was eyeing them and looked like he was thinking about taking them with him in his truck. I guess one man's trash is another man's treasure! I think I'll just stick to pretty dresses!

  4. Such a Katie look head to toe. Plus that rainbow maxi was perfect for the LBTGQ month. I own similar slides and also have bright little square-heel orange suede sandals that I have already worn a lot this Summer!

    Miss your comments, pretty lady. =)
