Christmas in July

Super duper giant grin. 


All maxi-dresses all the time in the summertime. I was going to wear this one to an improv show, but then my friend who was going to go with me flaked out, and my husband who said he might go with me had a long day at the office and was not up for it, and so it was either go alone or stay at home. But I realized I had a third option that appealed to me: Go out and buy some grocery store sushi. So I wore this buying grocery store sushi. (When did grocery store sushi become a thing? Just wondering. I enjoy its wide availability.)


It is maybe (definitely) a shapeless dress, but sometimes I feel like wearing a shapeless dress, and it is a shapeless dress with a fun, green pattern.


I wore bangles I got from a thrift store and a vendor in Ireland and on my feet are thrifted Italian leather shoes that I have worn before on this here blog and absolutely adore.


Those shades are one of five or so I have thrifted this year in my "Oh wow, I can wear contacts now!" frenzy. I did not match them to my shoes on purpose (just thought red and green were lovely, like Christmas in July!), but it works. Apparently matching your accessories is tacky, but if you're going to be tacky, summer is the best time to go for it, don't you think?

This dress just sings with the joyful spirit of summer! So flowy, fun, and pretty! I think your shoes compliment this dress really nicely - the bold pattern of the dress seems to stop the look from veering into potential Christmas territory.

Have a fantastic Friday!

Sushi from anywhere is a good thing!
The dress may be shapeless but you made it look great with the red accents.
