This is one of my “easy breezy” dresses for summer 2017, and it’s a good one. The style is similar to the Dex dress I thrifted for my Mexican vacation, and it’s one of my favourites. The chiffon overlay doesn’t just add some visual interest to the plain black jersey; it provides some good camouflage for a less-than-washboard set of abs. (Guilty as charged.) I prefer this dress over the Dex version because I think the pattern here is a bit less juvenile … but, truth be told, I am keeping both dresses for the time being. The Dex will be more of a vacation cover-up, but I’m saving this one for my hometown-bound erranding. It’s super easy (and comfortable) to throw on, and can still be dressed up if necessary. Also, I’m pretty sure it’s machine washable, which is a nice bonus for a casual dress. The brand is Numph, if anyone is interested in tracking it down.

  1. You look beautiful in this dress and no guilt is allowed for less-than-washboard abs. Leave that to the professional fitness models who get paid for it.
