My favorite thing about the summer is that it gives me the opportunity to wear so many pretty dresses. I could wear a dress every day of my life if New York City weather would permit me. That’s why I take advantage of the warm weather to bring out some of my favorites.
I purchased this white dress with red polka dots in Colombia many moons ago. I actually bought this when I was much heavier than I am today but I could never get rid of it. I love it too much!
Thankfully this dress has a ruched elastic waist, it easily fit me during my heavier days and after my weight-loss.
It’s hard for me to let go of this dress because it has so many great details. The shoulders have laces that can be tied into an adorable bow.
The top has a deep V-neck cut. But thanks to all of the fabric, it does not reveal too much skin. The back is also cut the same way. You can see it in the photo above.
I absolutely love the bottom of this dress. This dress is fully lined and the bottom is cut to be a flowy circle skirt. This gives this dress a lovely, full bottom. It kind of brings out the little girl in me and makes me want to just spin and spin in this dress.
I kept my makeup light on this hot Florida day. I used my Make Up For Ever Duo Mat foundation powder, Urban Decay’s Flushed Streak blush palette and my Dolce & Gabbana Italian Monica lipstick. I’m also wearing a pair of Dior sunglasses to protect my eye from the bright summer sun.
