Confession: I used to absolutely hate dresses.
…Until I tried this. I also wasn’t a fan of stripes either, so clearly my style is evolving or the staple white midi dress by Clayton is just magic. Leaning towards the latter. Even crazier, I would’ve almost guaranteed this style would look ridiculous on me. Here is legitimate proof that you seriously HAVE to try it on before you make a decision.
The way I describe my style is modern + comfy chic with a little boho flare, and I think this dress perfectly matches that. Now that I live in California, I’ve finally been able to confirm my obsession with the beach, and even better, dressing up (or down) for it. As much as I love getting all dolled up, I will always appreciate the casual & more relaxed days: hence, beach time.
My favorite part about this dress is definitely the cut. I have a super short torso, so anything that cuts off basically like a bra and flows out is perfect for my body shape. I’m also a big fan of skinny straps in general. I normally don’t lean toward stripes, but I like that these are vertical in order to elongate your figure. The material of this is also a bit thicker, so you don’t have to worry about it being too sheer or skin tight. It’s pretty much the perfect beach or vacation dress. Ideally, it would be the perfect dress for a whole beach vacation. Putting that on my to-do list, dw.
I probably get most excited about accessorizing my outfits. I think adding a bunch of layered jewelry always makes an outfit look 10x more put together, so to fit the boho chic vibe, I went with some gold layered necklaces and a whole bunch of gold and threaded bracelets. For shoes, I had the perfect denim flats to compliment the blue in the dress and a minimal brown bag by Chloe. As usual, I’ll link the whole look below with a few similar options!
If you’re looking for more beach looks, there was one other dress that perfectly fits the relaxed vibe. I am seriously in need of more dresses like this, so if you have any flowy favorites, be sure to comment below and keep me in the loop!
