This Summer, I am making an effort to wear more of my Summer wardrobe and to just be pretty… effortlessly. I usually achieve an effortless pretty simply by throwing on a dress. Dresses are an outfit in themselves which eliminate the fight to match pieces to create an outfit. Dresses are even more convenient since I am pregnant. My belly doesn’t even wanna be bothered with buttons right now, lol.
I have so many NEW dresses in my closet, it’s kind of ridiculous. Many of them still have the tags on them. I’ve had this “dresses are for special ocassions” mentality, so it took me a while to truly be comfortable in them. I remember wearing jeans a few Summers, complaining that I needed capri’s and shorts when I had perfectly good Summerwear sitting in my closet. Well, part of being a free spirit is letting go and being free and there’s no better time right now in my life to be doing so.
Fresh Produce Clothing sent me one of their Spring Dresses (the Cafe Wrap) and I love how comfortable it is and the pattern is just gorgeous. The Cafe Wrap is almost loungy (92% rayon, 8% lycra) so I can wear it around the house and out on the town. On Father’s Day, I wore the dress to the fair and paired it with some super comfy sandals (Earth Spirit). I felt pretty, but I was comfortable and effortlessly pretty.
