Summer Slip Dresses: OOTD
With summer comes higher temperatures and heat waves and basically all the things that I hate. I’m one of those that thrives when the weather is 75 degrees and under. Once it hits 80 degrees, I just want to run home and sit in front of the AC. Strange, I know.
Because I always get hot, during these NYC summers, I like to live in as little clothing as possible. However, the days of running around in Abercrombie & Fitch shorts and basic tees are gone. I mean, I’m not in college anymore, right? So my summer basics have turned into the more feminine kind of basic. . .summer slip dresses.
Slip dresses are an obvious fave for me. I mean, when it’s 85 degrees out, the last thing I want is to have a bunch of fabric touching my body. I’m one of those that would seriously consider going to a nudist colony when it gets ridiculously hot.
With a slip dress, you can get the added benefit of a breeze cooling you off. And it’s so so so easy to style. You can pair it with lace up flats, chunky flats, heck, I’ve even worn mine with my Alexander Wang combat boots to toughen it up a little. The only thing I’d hesitate to wear it with is heels, unless you’ve got something else going on top.
In other non-OOTD related news: are there any NY’ers that have suggestions as to where I might go to have my hair color corrected? Let me tell you, bleaching your hair 3-4 times in a one month period is just plain stupid. I’m not a fan of the salon I went to get this done at so I’m open to any suggestions!
Summer is heating up and there’s going to be more 85-90 degree days out there. And you better believe I will be doing a daily rotation of all the slips in my closet. I’ve already worn this Forever 21 one multiple times.
