Early in May, I stumbled onto these images which I saved for a post for summer. They are images from Refinery 29 of the exact silhouette of dress that I decided I wanted to live in all summer.
And the exact type of sandal I think would be a summer essential.
This dress is perfect for a number of reasons: it's blue, it appears to be a linen-cotton blend, and it's a casual loose fit. I can imagine myself lounging in it by the beach, by the lake, by the pool. I can see myself wearing this as I wander through flea markets and browse racks at thrift shops. I can see multiple ways to wear it: belted, with a light summer blazer, with a turban headscarf or even a panama hat.
I'll be looking for a vintage version of this dress.
And these sandals are good for day and can easily transition to night. I need a vintage pair (actually any pair) in my life.
I'll let you know if my vintage road trip proves successful for these two items...
