dress & bandana: thrifted // sandals: old American Eagle (similar)
I bet you couldn’t guess where this dress is from. I mean, yes, you could probably guess that I got it at Goodwill, but I bet you couldn’t guess where it’s from originally. Wet freaking Seal. Granted, my fifteen year old self would have been just as stoked to grab this dress up as I was at twenty-four, but how great is this dress? And especially for being from Wet Seal!?
Some dresses are bought with the intention of being worn throughout the year. Yeah, maybe some dresses aren’t so conducive to wearing tights, but I still get away with wearing the dress in at least three of the four seasons. This dress? This is The Summer Dress. It’s lightweight and boldly printed, strappy and flowy. When I picked it up at Goodwill while thrifting with Dago, I immediately knew it would be my new poetry church dress. I wore it Sunday for poetry church, and then to the grocery, to eat ice cream, and to watch soccer on the couch. If that’s not a perfect day for a summer dress, I don’t know what is.
Did you do anything fun this weekend? Did you wear a summer dress while you did it?
