Wedding Season

Guess what time of the year it is? If your summer's anything like mine, you're probably planning your entire season around your friends' nuptials. Weddings are cool and all. I mean, everyone loves to boogie down with a nice beverage in hand, right? You know what comes with weddings, though? Bridal showers. This outfit strikes me as a great one for watching a bride-to-be open toasters for a couple hours. 

I won't go into detail on how thrilling I find bridal showers, they seem to be hit or miss on the fun scale. I will tell you though, they will inevitably be awkward. Why not chip away at some of that awkwardness with an adorable outfit that you and your friend's aunt's neighbor can small talk about for at least 3 minutes.

Comfy Chic

This right here is a dream of a dress, and another sneaky one too. Throw it on with a couple of accessories and look like you've really got it together and yet, you could easily fall asleep in it. Literally, I almost went to bed wearing this dress until I realized it wasn't my flannel pjs. The dress is that comfortable. It's also one of  those Brandy and Melville frocks that's "one size fits all". Ha you might say, ha ha. 

But it's actually great. It probably helps that it doesn't have a lot of shape to it, but that's what makes it so wonderful. It's that swingy, sassy, cottony, comfy LBD that you can throw on when you want to meet a couple friends and look chic, but don't want to put a whole lot of effort into it. Add a vintage scarf that kind of smells like your grandma and a pair of black booties and off you go!
