It’s officially summer. Granted, it’s been HOT lately in Philadelphia and I’ve been down the beach every other weekend, but now I can officially enter a “summer state of mind.” For me, that involves a LOT of time outside, soaking up the sun. I’ve touched on this before, but I am literally always cold. Please do not tell me that it’s because I’m skinny, and to “eat a cheeseburger.” If I eat a cheeseburger I will be cold AND full.
Moving on. The perfect summer outfit for me is always, ALWAYS a dress. I can throw on a light jacket or sweater for the air conditioned office, and then be crazy comfortable walking to happy hour afterwards. Miley Cyrus would call this the best of both worlds. Or she would twerk. Either way, dresses are my jam.
This week’s Creative Closet prompt: Pop of Neon. I usually figure out my outfit for these posts about 3-4 days in advance, based on something I already own. That’s sorta the point. This one kinda just fell in my lap though – literally. I looked down one day and realized the dress I’d worn all morning at work wasn’t just black and white.
You may find this incredibly unobservant of me, but I hadn’t had coffee that day. I was tired. I was busy. And I probably didn’t have time to look in the mirror that morning. Perhaps surprise, forgotten neon is the best kind of neon anyway! My favorite part – definitely the zipper on the back!
This beauty was from Francesca’s – one of my all-time favorite boutiques (though i’ll admit, their stock is getting a bit “festival-y” for me these days.) Since I wear dresses almost daily, I’m always on the hunt for new places to shop! Where have you been shopping lately?
Happy Tuesday! Enjoy the rest of your week : )
