PRETTY PLEATS

Free People panama hat // DV by Dolce Vita chesmu dress // Zara mules 

I wore this dress out to grab dinner with friends and it ended up being a life saver! We were eating out at Little Water Cantina because their deck is amazing and like all sun-worshipping Seattleites, we absolutely had to sit outside. So there we were, the sun was shining, there were no clouds in sight, and I was covered in sweat before I could even put my bag down. I'm not even exaggerating. Over the course of our dinner, I went to the bathroom twice. Not to do bathroom stuff, but to wipe off the sweat puddles that would slowly accumulate between my boobs and on my belly. So if I was such a hot mess, how in the world did this dress save me? Well my friends, it could have been a lot worse. I could have been wearing a grey t-shirt and jeans. So I was lucky (or maybe smart) to have worn something that would conceal sweat marks and let my skin breath as much as possible in the stifling heat. Now the asymmetrical tan I got on the right side of my body? There was no way around that.
