A Different Kind of Summer Dress

I'm not sure why, but this week in particular feels like it's lasting forever. Maybe it's the intense heat and humidity; every time I go outside, I feel like I'm stepping into a sauna. My poor hair... frizz city.

When the summer temperatures rise, it helps to have a lightweight summer dress to wear. When I think of summer dresses, I normally think of longer, free-flowing dresses that billow around you in the muffled breeze.

That's not this dress. 

I'm calling this Parker dress a "different kind" of summer dress. It's white, with a pink floral pattern and ruffles throughout, including on the (adjustable) straps and skirt. It's also hugs your curves much more than a typical summer dress, making it super flattering.

Outfit Details

Dress: Parker New York Laurel Floral Ruffled Dress

I actually bought the dress last summer but never had a chance to wear it. You can still find it on discount sites like BHFO.

I'm not sure what's happening with the Parker brand; the site shut down a few months ago due to COVID, but hopefully will be back up and running soon. I love this brand's chic dresses and would hate to see it go out of business.

Shoes: Manolo Blahnik Didin Wrap-Around Leather Sandals (no longer available)
