"You look like a hot nurse" is what my hubby said to me on a muggy Saturday taking these pics. "Well thank you, but that's not exactly what I was going for. I was thinking 'summer whites'" was my reply.
It was indeed humid outside with the threat of the usual daily (or weekly) impending rain. I told hubby that this is what we were in for when we move back to FL. Told him we'd have to keep this in mind when taking pics there. "You don't want to go now?" he asked. "Of course I do. I want to be back to things I know, family, and friends." "But you'll be miserable with the weather." "Well, I'll stay inside in the a/c," I laughed.
Before buying this dress, I took a pic of it with my iPhone and sent it to my sister as I wasn't quite so sure about it. She sent me a text with a resounding "Yes!" when I asked if I should get it. At the time I was writing an article about eyelet for The Impossible Girl. And I totally forgot about my matching eyelet shoes. A bit much with the dress? Maybe. But I only wanted one pop of color in my outfit with this Urban Outfitters belt. The dress came with a cheap, braided light tan belt.
