It’s still summer for almost a month (and it’s still warm here), so I insist on continuing to wear summer clothes. I found this great maxi dress at Old Navy over the summer and have worn it several times. My office is pretty casual, so I even wore it to work once this summer with a cardigan to cover my shoulders (and to keep warm because my office feels like the freakin’ Arctic). The dress is really comfortable, and I love the combination of blue and white. An added perk is that it irons really easily. That may not sound like a big deal, but I am not a fan of ironing, so I get pretty psyched when I find something that is low maintenance in that regard. Score!
Because I’m nearly 5’7″, I had to wear flat sandals with this rather than heels. The dress ended up looking way too short with heels, but I think it would be cute with some sort of heeled sandal if the dress were longer.
I was trying to do something different with my hair for the next few posts, so I rather than drying it straight or curling it, I left it wavy, which is what it does naturally (well, naturally with a bit of help from some hair products and a hair dryer with a diffuser), and pulled it back into a ponytail. I’ve been wearing my hair like this a lot this summer because it’s cooler than leaving it down. It also takes so long – at least 30 minutes – to dry my hair straight whereas it takes about 10 minutes to dry it a bit and leave it wavy, so you can guess what I do most often during the summer.
