You might have seen me talk about how I couldn't get over wearing so much linen this summer. It's true. Linen is just one of those staple fabrics that you cannot avoid during the warmer months. I think I purchased around 7 or 8 pieces over the summer that are made of linen. The only pain is that it wrinkles way too easy. But that's okay, my trick for that is riding in the car with my seatbelt uncomfortably fastened or sitting in a weird position until I get out of the car. You gotta do what you gotta do sometimes. Let's talk about this dress though! I scored this dress from Free People a few months ago - which is now on sale. At first I was worried about how low cut it was when I saw it on the website, but after I tried it on I used the wrap tie to make it appear a little less revealing in the front. When I say this is the most comfortable dress, believe it. The fabric is indeed very lightweight and breathable.
I did lots of moving around (and sweating in this dress as you can tell) I can say honestly this this is one of my favorite additions to my summer wardrobe. I just wish I could wear it more often! It has a full length button-down detail, but I left it halfway unbuttoned for a lil' leg action. Ha. The thing that I love about a versatile dress is the fact that you can wear it into the fall. You can layer with a nice suede cropped moto jacket, or even a darker denim jacket with an ankle boot to complete your look if your cooler fall weather comes sooner than our fall in Texas. If you have noticed that I linked the same dress a few times, it's because you might find that it is sold out in multiple sizes, but might be available at another one of the linked retailers in a different size. What is one of your summer must-have wardrobe essentials? Let me know in the comments!
