Outfit Of The Day For July 17, 2013: Heat Wave Dress

Fountain of 30

July 17, 2013 • Fashion Blog, Outfit Of The Day


Lauren picked up this Derek Lam for Kohl’s dress for me and we both thought it would be perfect for “those really hot days” since it is so light…and we were right. Those days are here! There’s a heat wave in Chicago and across the nation. This dress is made of very lightweight cotton jersey, and yet still covers me up. I like the detailed shirring at the waist and back. With a dress like this all you need are a few easy accessories and, of course, a pair of shades.
