Dress Renewal

I tend to not feature dresses a lot on the blog – not as much as skirts anyway – because it’s always difficult to turn them into different outfits. Even if you wear different shoes, it would still look the same. Of course, this is a “blog” problem rather than a real-life problem, but still, I would like to show off my dresses more often. But after the SIA outfit last week, when I layered a button-up with a dress, I suddenly remembered that it was an option (provided that the weather isn’t too scorching, of course). So here is another variation of the same look. I like the color combo of navy and mustard yellow, and both the dress and the shirt are very light-weight, so even though it was pretty muggy, they were still comfortable to wear. Definitely going to try more of this!

Geographic Print

Everybody may be talking about transitioning their wardrobe into fall, but it’s still freaking hot over here and fall is nowhere in sight – in fact, we’re only now entering our hurricane season, so fall won’t be here for at least another month. Which is why you find me in this very summery dress, still. If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know I love a nature-themed print, especially anything botanical – it may have something to do with the fact that my dad is a biologist, a plant geneticist to be precise. The print on this dress is more graphic than my usual fare, but it has mountains and volcanos, which still satisfies my love for nature prints and also reminds me of my mom’s job as a geologist, so of course I had to snatch it up.
