The Vacay-Worthy Dress


Happy Friday, beautiful. Since the Fourth of July was on a Wednesday, it feels like we’ve been celebrating the holiday all week long. The week-long festivities still have everything stars and stripes (but mostly stripes) giving me all the feels. This Michael Kors dress is also giving me all the feels for its stripes and so much more- particularly for its vacay-worthiness. Let me count the ways in which I’m so in love with this dress:

  1. Stripes!!!
  2. Blue and white
  3. SUPER comfy
  4. Chic
  5. Stylish
  6. Casual or Dressy
  7. Timeless
  8. Versatile
  9. Cold-shoulder AND exposed zipper = current
  10. Sleek, midi silhouette = classic

So, there’s just (more than) a few reasons why I fell in love with this dress. If you add all of them together, it makes for the perfect packable piece for your next summer vacay. Need a casual dress for hitting the local shops or markets? Just pair it with sandals or a pair of cute sneakers. Need the perfect seaside dining date night look? Wear it with strappy heels, a gold bangle, a gorgeous bag, and fabulous sunnies like I have done here. Away for a business convention? No worries. Throw on a pair of sophisticated pumps and a blazer and you’re ready for any #bossbabe moment. Going from warm and sunny temps outside to frigid air-conditioned temps inside? I’ve got you covered there too (pun intended). Just add a denim jacket (cute and casual), a cardigan (so sweet), or a comfy button down (somewhere in between)- throw it in your bag or tie it around your waist until you need to add a little warmth.

There are countless reasons why I love this dress so much and why it makes for the perfect piece to stow away on your next summer getaway. I’m sure you’ll find many more reasons to add this stylish piece to your wardrobe- please share your ideas with me too!
