Summertime Staples

{sundress & sneakers}

28 May 2018

Last weekend was my sister’s graduation from Muhlenberg College and like any family fun there were a few hiccups along the way, the first and biggest being that when Kev and I packed the car for the weekend we forgot to bring his button-downs! Of course, we didn’t realize until we arrived on her campaign and needless to say we were not going to attend the weekend’s events without a few collared shirts. We hightailed it to the nearest store to try and find a few shirts for Kev and I may have wandered into the dress section… where I found this adorable number.

There are a few things I look for in dresses:

  • Hemline – I’m 5’3″ and all leg, so if the hem cannot of a dress comes past my mid-thigh I instantly look tiny. Bonus points for a rounded hem (higher on the sides than the front & back).
  • Waist that hits at my actual waistline, these are far and few between.
  • Versatility! A one-off, one-time dress is not my thing. I want something I can wear to work, on the weekend, to happy hour, season-to-season and everywhere in between.

This dress checked all the boxes and was that beautiful olive green I am so in love with, I had to take her home. In just under a week I won this same dress to my sister’s graduation dinner, Sunday brunch, and to work proving that good closet pieces will serve you in a multitude of ways.
