Sometimes hot weather and dressing cute just don’t go along, times like these cause for the infamous summer dress! I get really hot in the summer, so I don’t like wearing a bunch of clothes! Hell, I will wear the least amount of clothing my body requires…lmao This week Chicago and its bipolar weather stuck again, we went from 60° to 80° in a matter of a few hours and I was so caught off guard. I’m not used to it being hot until the middle of June so I went to the store and grabbed the first dress in sight!
The other reason I love summer dresses is because they hide all the weight I’ve gained. It’s true, I’ve probably gained 30lbs in the last 2 years! What sucks is, I think I broke my metabolism, at least that’s going to be my excuse. I’m now working to lose the weight so in the meantime, I will rock dresses that help to hide it.
Dress: Forever 21 (get it here), Necklace: Julie Vos (c/o), Purse: Olivia+Joy (c/o), Shoes: BCBG, Sunglasses: Oliver Peoples (c/o). I paired my dress with this necklace I received from Julie Vos. She is definitely a beauty, expect to see her all summer long.
