Make you sweat

Things seem to finally be heating up, and this grey sweatshirt dress has come out at least a few times - I love that it's office appropriate, super comfortable, and pretty much a blank slate for whatever accessories I might pair with it.

Nights have still been cool, so a denim jacket makes for a sound addition.

Even as humidity levels and the heat index rises, and I find I have a bit more of a sheen to my skin, you will not hear me complain about being too hot. The winter was far too long and too cold for me to not appreciate every bit of the summer warmpth I can soak in.

  1. That is definitely a classic dress! I have a similar, gray Zara dress and it worked for everything too! Soak in the heat!

  3. Love that dress, it looks super cozy!
    I complain about the heat, but that's because I'm a baby, haha. Although so far it's been okay this year. Except when I was in FL, that was DEATH...

  4. Love your sandals!

  5. I would be more than happy to send a bit of summer heat your way. We haven't had rain here for well over three weeks - they promised some last night, but it never came. We're absolutely sweltering (and pretty much no one here has air conditioning), not to mention the fact that wildfires are burning in nearby rural areas so the air is smoky. I shouldn't complain, but I never thought I'd wish so intensely for it to rain. I digress. This summer outfit is exactly what I wish I could be wearing right now - simple, effortless and comfortable but oh-so-stylish. I just love the way your denim jacket looks tied around your waist!

  6. I wish we had a cool down in the evening it's just hot and humid in the mid-atlantic! I love wearing dresses in the summer, love your look.

  7. Don't you just love those items that you can always have a fresh start with ?
    I remember googling this dress when it first entered your closet… it made it to the shopping cart and then …. i guess i forgot about it.

  8. Indeed! I try to NEVER complain about the heat (but I am always cold anyway so I rarely do) because the winter SUCKS!!! I love this simple grey dress! It is sure to be very versatile!

  9. I'm all about the sweatshirt dresses right now - so comfy and surprisingly breathable. Love the simplicity of this look.

  11. Very youthful look, simple, yet chic! Besides, those snapshots are so lovely!
    Have a fabulous time!

  12. We've had the opposite this week--it was in the 60s today!! Crazy. But it will warm up soon. Anyway, I love that dress--it really is the perfect blank slate for fun accessories and details.

  13. What a classic dress and so versatile! I am hoping it warms up here soon! We get a couple days in the low 80s then back to the low 70s again. Where is our summer?!

  14. That dress looks amazing on you! I need one like that!

  17. I love comfy outfits and you nailed it with this one! Really cute sandals too! -R

  18. Love this look! And I am with you, I'll take the balmy-ness as long as it lasts.

    Childhood obesity has, from being an aberration, become a cause of concern. Nowadays, there is increasing focus on the health of children and teenagers, and the lack of fitness in that particular age group is constantly under a spotlight.

  25. That is a pretty dress! I can see the dressing up and dressing down potential of it.

    Glad you are enjoying the warmer weather too! It's so COLD here this winter, and it's going to get crazy cold over the weekend. I miss summer, haha!

  26. Haha, I like your attitude about not complaining! Yeah, the sheen definitely exists for me, too, but I hate when my skin suffers because of sweating/exercising in the humidity. That's about as far as I'll complain, though. You look wonderful in that dress! I love the color/texture of it.
