I’ve come to accept a few truths about clothing. Whites don’t stay very white for long. Blacks fade. That’s great for a leather jacket, not so much for a black cotton tee. I replace white cardigans, jackets, sweaters, socks, you-name-it almost once a year. Who here hasn’t worn a pair of dingy white socks before? These truths have led me to buy an inexpensive, low-quality items in white – like this white embroidered summer dress I found at Old Navy. It’s something I won’t cry over when it finally falls apart in the washing machine, picks up a stain, or yellows in the armpit (no one likes to talk about it, but unless you’ve been botox-ing your ‘pits, it’s real man.) Or worse, you leave it behind in your hotel (sad face.)
I found this comfy white dress, sold in tall and perfect for everyday wear. It’s linen and cotton mixed with a decent amount of rayon (a synthetic textile that mimics silk…..mostly.) I love the tall sizes so I can get a dress that’s finally long enough. I snagged it for less than 20 bucks during their 50% off dresses sale and I can’t wait to wear it in Mexico next week. The gauzy texture of this fabric should make it travel-friendly (go away wrinkles!) The best part? It’s going to hide my extra vacation pounds just fine. lol
