it isn’t summer without summer dresses. this beautiful white tularosa dress is thick enough to not be see through [no slip needed] but thin enough to enjoy a cool summer breeze which makes it the perfect summer dress. the length falls a classy few inches above my knee [i’m 5’3] and fits true to size.

dresses are always my summer time go-to. they are the easiest and lowest maintenance outfit [beside jammies and onsies] out there. throw on one piece of clothing, add a couple accessories and bam! outfit complete. you can get dressed in minutes and still look like a smoke show. talk about ideal.

however, summer dresses can be a tricky find. some are too short [sorry tall girls] some are too long [it’s summer], some are see-through [no thank you], some have a terrible clingy fabric that sticks to your body in the summer heat [ew] and some are just frumpy. but every once in a while a gem finds its way into your wardrobe and the moment of joy commences.

this tularosa summer dress just so happens to be one of my summer gems. it perfectly rocks the off-shoulder trend. the shoulders stay draped across your arms even with movement. i have a number of off the shoulder tops that i am constantly adjusting after sitting and standing. this beauty stays put.

the stunning blue embroidery adds the perfect amount of color and pop to the dress to make it versatile. pair it with flats or some gladiator sandals for a casual day outfit or dress it up with nude wedges and some colorful drop earrings for a night out with the girls.

wedding update: currently in the process of solidifying a venue and date. y’all, i had no idea how much work and research goes into planning a wedding. props to all the brides and past brides out there! you ladies are incredible!
