so today i am wearing one of my favorite summer uniforms. a cute belted dress, a cardigan for layering, platform wedges, and a straw hat. it’s a relatively simple formula, but it can always look completely different given the choice of colors, patterns, proportions, and accessories. i particularly love this dress because i know it’s going to be a very versatile part of my wardrobe. the soft and thin jersey knit is beyond comfortable. today i dressed it up a bit, but it could also double as a casual beach cover up with a simple pair of flat sandals. and well, the super short length will come in handy when the weather finally gets hot. and it was something that particularly appealed to my boyfriend. i certainly don’t dress for him, but it’s always entertaining to see what he likes, even if it isn’t very surprising! haha!
