Gauze and Eyelet

It's Monday, September 17, 2018, and fortunately, Hurricane Florence is behind us. Atlanta lucked out and got virtually no rain or wind from the storm, but of course many parts of North and South Carolina were flooded, suffered through high winds, or saw record rainfall. My heart is with all the victims and their families, and I'm planning to donate to the American Red Cross and The Humane Society to try to do my part to help.

I have a busy work week ahead of me, so I wanted to wear something today that was really comfortable. Today's dress, from Rebecca Taylor, is light and airy, most likely due to the combination of gauze and eyelet. I like that you can dress it up for work or dress it down to wear on the weekend.


Dress: Rebecca Taylor Mariana Gauze and Eyelet Dress

The dress is still available on the Rebecca Taylor website (and marked down), but there are only a few sizes left. I'm wearing a size four, but I probably could have gone with a size two; the dress must run a little big.

You can also find the dress on ShopBop in white, or on eBay!


Here is a similar dress from Rachel Pally that is on sale for under $100 at 6pm.com.

I just happened to get my nails done over the weekend -- both my fingernails and toenails are blue -- so it was a perfect day to wear this dress.

I had a busy weekend, but definitely a fun one, as I attended the 40th birthday for a friend of mine from high school, and spent a lot of time with my sister, Laura, who is here for the time being after evacuating from Newport, North Carolina. Here are just a few pictures from the weekend:
