HAPPY FRIDAY FRIENDS. Closing out the week with this flirty dress, platform heels, and of course our LE SPEC SUNNIES for Look 3 of the week!
This week in Napa it has been SO HOT. We’ve consistently reach 102 degrees for the last 3 days and I’ve been melting! I’ve been living in breezy dresses and trying to stay in air conditioned buildings as much as possible. When shooting this look, Hubs and I headed downtown Napa to try out a new Thai spot called Mini Mango Thai Bistro. Still about 94 degrees around 7 pm, I needed a dress that was super lightweight and cool.
This dress’s baby blue color caught my eye immediately when I was browsing ShopBop and I find myself gravitating towards drop waist dresses. It’s sleeves and collar gives it a little more coverage up top to make up for it’s super short hem line. My favorite thing about this dress is it’s versatility in that it can be worn in high heats to keep you cool, but also covered enough to transition the cool evenings.
Another style I am completely enamored with is platform heels. Having spent most of my life immersed in the athletic world, I’m always used to feeling so short! At 5’6″, I’m apparently pretty average for a female but I find myself always buying sky high heels to gain a few (or 5) inches. Platforms are a favorite of mine because you add a ton of height (and leg length!) without feeling like you’re walking on your tippy toes all night…who wants that?!
To wrap it up, this look is easy, comfortable, and perfect for the last of these summer heat waves. Pretty soon we’ll finally be feeling fall weather which means…boot season!! I don’t know about you, but boot season is the BEST am I right?
