Growing up, I used to give my mom so much sass for always buying black and neutral clothing for herself. She'd tell me, "I know it's boring but I love these colors!" I used to think she was nuts because anytime I shopped for myself I went for the more color- the better! In the last few years though, I've realized the method to her madness and realized she wasn't so crazy after all. Neutrals and blacks are so classic and flattering! Now, I immediately gravitate towards any neutral when I shop, it's a no brainer. My mom would laugh at my current closet (which is mostly blacks with only a few pops of color) and say something like "COMO LA MADRE!" which means "like your mother!" in Spanish. Momma is always right and don't I know it! Thanks for teaching me early, Mom, even if I didn't want to listen.
This dress is flowy and the sleeve detail is so pretty, it's a new favorite now that the "it's way too hot for pants" season has set in here in Austin. Triple digits are no joke and these legs need to breathe!
Thanks for reading!
