Hi, hello, welcome. Today I'd like to introduce you to the only dress you'll need this Independence Day. As you well know by now, I am very partial to a good print, as well as the color red, so when I saw this lil number hanging up on a rack at J.Crew, I knew it was going home with me.
As a lady with an ethnic body type, dresses can sometimes be a little hit or miss; what fits in the bust may not fit in the back, but from the moment I zipped this dress up, it just fit in all the right places like a golden glove. I needed more summer dresses in my life!
To keep this outfit on the more casual side, I decided to pair it with a nice jean jacket (is it even the 4th of July if there's no denim??), a straw hat, some of my favorite block-heel sandals, and a black bag to match. What's nice about this dress is that it can easily go from day-to-night (say, if you're attending a party later in the evening) in a snap: just ditch the jacket and hat, but keep the black bag and heels. Voila! We did it!
What are YOU wearing for the 4th of July Weekend? Sound off in the comments below!
