Memorial Day is here. A chance to remember fallen soldiers, a day off from work–insert side eye as I reminisce on the days of paid holidays, no complaints though, just saying ;)–bbq’s, family time, and the unofficial start to summer. I’m not sure what it’s feeling like in your city but for Philly, we kicked off Memorial Day Weekend with temps in the 90’s. So much for that spring capsule huh? I had just added a few more pieces too and then bam! Summer is here. I can’t say I’m upset though as the weather allowed me to pull out one of my favorite summer dresses. This blue and grey striped maxi.
My favorite part of this dress? Um everything! It fits perfectly, navy and gray are part of my neutral faves, and the stripes going in opposite directions add just the right amount of pop. But, to keep it real, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I accidentally shrunk it in the dryer and the length was super awkward for a bit. I wound up tying this little knot and liked the dress even better though.
I got this dress maybe two summers ago from H&M and it’s still one of my faves. It’s not available anymore of course but I’ve rounded up a few cute striped maxi dress options
that I may grab myself:
Hope you’re enjoying the holiday weekend! Spending the day with the boys is all that’s on the agenda for us. I’m sure they’ll keep us busy.
