As we approach the summer days ahead of us, it's that time of year to showcase one of my favorite outfits. My bright floral dress in the desert! The first time I put on this dress, I immediately felt a connection with where I was – beautiful Death Valley. The long, endless sightlines of the desert and the immediate heat sensation made me feel alive and free.
The bright floral colors made me stand out among the dry sand and cacti, which beckoned me to approach them. Take note of the open shoulder. While it might seem strange to have a single open shoulder (and an uneven tan!), it was the opposite. I felt a sense of freedom with this open shoulder, yet secure enough on the other to stay in place in the event of any wind gust.
Notice at the base of the dress how the opening gives a sense of freedom and flow. Walking in this dress was a breeze, as they say. I have always loved dresses with an open flow such as this, and this dress does not disappoint! I can say that this is one of the most comfortable dresses that I have ever worn. In the desert, a bit of looseness in a dress is a must, but also not so loose that it looks baggy.
I found that I could use various kinds of shoes that complemented my look. Whether it was a set of small sneakers or longer ankle-height boots, it was easy to find a set of footwear that complimented my style.
A desert dress doesn't often appear in a woman's wardrobe, but it should! Death Valley – we’ll be back!
