Summer dress


I put on this dress yesterday and asked Robert "Has it always been this short?" Not only did it feel short, the straplessness felt more, I don't know, strapless than usual. For three summers, this dress was a staple. Why did it feel so strange now? Probably because I started dressing very modestly when I started working in schools. I think that spilled over into my non-school-wardrobe too. My comfort level has changed, and this dress now requires a thrifted, short-sleeved yellow cardigan.



Maybe as the temperatures rise from too darn hot to absolutely insane, I'll change my mind and wear it sans cardigan. It's still one of my favorites.I think it just screams summer. This bag is one of my favorites too. We'll definitely be hanging out all summer.

I find that my modesty level tends to rise and fall over the years. That dress is so cute! It looks nice with that buttercup yellow cardigan :)
