i thought this would be a great outfit to revisit on this beautiful first day of summer. on saturday jill and i spent the afternoon eating delicious bagel sandwiches and thrifting. it was extremely hot out and all i could muster up was an easy breezy cotton dress and a straw fedora to keep the sun off my pale face. this dress, which i would guess would be called 'mauve' by most, is the perfect dress for a really hot day. with the lace detailing on both the neckline and along the back, it adds a bit of fun to an otherwise average frock. a few months ago i bought a few cotton bandeaus from f21 and i have to say that they are fantastic. under this dress, which has lace dropping quite low, they provide a great pop of gray and some extra coverage.
