The summer really makes you appreciate a soft, easy to wear, loosely fitting dress, and this one fits the bill. (I reviewed it HERE.) While I'll be able to wear it with different cardigans and completer pieces in cooler months, on hot days when you don't want to add more clothes, the way to go is accessories. Incorporating color, pattern, texture, or shine (thanks Stacy and Clinton!) through shoes, bags, jewelry, or belts will change up outfits without adding clothing layers. So, for a lunch date with Benson on a humid day I just picked up a bold green bag and was on my way! I love, love, love greens with blues, and this bag was the perfect pop of color for the outfit.
This dress is currently 60% off (!!!) along with a few other pieces at LOFT. Everything below is on sale, and most are 60% off. LOFT is killing it right now, and thereby killing ME because I kind of want all the things!
