Having missed out on the Everybody, Everywear fun in the past, I was sure not to this time around, especially since May’s item, florals, was well represented in my limited closet. I won’t lie; I almost wore these shorts again, but then I saw this floral dress and changed my mind. It’s cotton and loose, and I was sweltering as I stood in front of my closet, thinking maybe I should just throw on my floral bikini and call it a day. Seriously friends, May is a scorcher; don’t be surprised if I look a bit sweaty in outfit shots from here on out.
I’ve worn this dress a few times, but this time I decided to tuck the nude straps into the dress, creating the illusion of a strapless dress. What’s that? You still see nude straps? No, no, those are just tan lines! (Despite my efforts to fill them in, I can never seem to get rid of them altogether.) While I tend to pair this dress with pastels, I decided to go with a brown belt, my vintage Louis Vuitton bag, and tan sandals (I swear I wore shoes). I finished it off with a pair of sunglasses and nothing more. The mere thought of a necklace or bracelet made me sweat…
