In the deep south, we don't actually get cold weather until after Thanksgiving sometimes. A lot of times actually. I have had more 70 degree Christmases than I care to count. That's just life. So while some fashion bloggers are already breaking out Fall type stuff, I'm over here like...you're kidding right? It was 102 degrees yesterday, PLUS crazy humid. I'm gonna keep rocking dresses and shorts until I'm sitting under the Christmas tree unwrapping presents! Kidding, I love Fall clothes too much. You'll probably catch me in a wool coat, walking around with sweat dripping down my butt crack, pretending I'm cool as a cucumber sometime soon. But in the meantime...
This dress is really lightweight and breezy. If you are big busted it's awesome, your bra straps will for sure be covered. I'm bottom heavy, big ole booty, so I don't have a really big chest. If you do though, there's a lot of room in the top black part, I barely filled it out. Sadly, this dress is sold out at Macy's, and I'm sure you can see why. It's super cute. However, the link above will take you to a chevron maxi made by the same designer at Macy's. It comes in black and white, or navy and white. It's just as cute and roomy on the top. BONUS: those dress are only $18.99 right now!!! At the very least, get one and throw it in your closet for next summer. Plus, pretty much all the maxis are on sale at Macy's right now...go load up!
I love this dress because of all the bright colors. I promise I wear more than blue, haha! I hate nothing more than when I hear someone say, "oh I can't wear that color" or "oh I don't wear sleeveless things" or my least favorite, "I don't wear shorts." WHY NOT?!? Who cares? Seriously, I promise that you are more concerned with how your bingo wings look than anybody else you come across. Nobody cares, they are more concerned with how they look! So do whatever you want!
This necklace is Kate Spade, it's one of my favorite brands on earth. They totally reel me in with all their clever marketing, and I don't even care. In fact, if they made plus size clothes, I'd probably lose my mind. It would be bad, they would get all of my money, so it's probably best that they don't. The necklace can be made longer or shorter, but not much, and it's fairly lightweight as far as statement necklaces go! I have linked to two similar necklaces up at the top.
