Finding 9 to 5 friendly dresses for the summer is no easy feat. Most offices keep the air conditioners blazing but then we find ourselves sweating while heading to lunch. Not to mention those scorching Happy Hours.
I’ve found the perfect combination with this hot pink shirt dress. The silky long sleeves shields our arms from dropped temperatures inside while its breathable material and asymmetric length lend for airier outside moments. Add a vintage, fashion forward or monochromatic belt and you’re ready for just about anything!
How do you plan to keep cool and warm during summer work days?
So I went to the Dallas Galleria this past weekend in search of a sleek black look for an upcoming fashion show. I wanted something edgy, chic and just a tad sexy. What I left with was this in your face, flowing maxi dress.
After trying on what felt like countless dresses, I had thrown in the towel. Then while on my way out of the mall this dress “called” me from the glamorous racks at Marciano by Guess.
I instantly saw myself wearing it with light accessories on an Anniversary trip with my love. I envisioned it with a light denim vest and stacked bracelets for brunching/shopping. I also saw myself sporting it with this moto jacket and a tough handbag for cooler, edgier nights.
This was far from what I set out to buy but I’m certainly not complaining. It’s like when Matthew Perry turns to Selma Hayek in one of my favorite movies Fools Rush In and says, “You’re everything I never knew I always wanted”.
Do you have a piece in your closet like this? One that found you? I’d love to hear about it.
