OOTD: Breaking in Summer

May 14, 2013

For the past couple of days, I’ve been vacationing on the coast of South Carolina. Because I’m on a college schedule, my “summer break” is this early week in May, and it feels like I’m trying to start the summer season a little early. The first day was wonderful and warm, but since then it’s been a sweater-on-the-beach kind of week. Nevertheless, I’m enjoying these few days of sleeping in, sand under my feet, and fresh seafood for dinner.




Last night my sister, brother-in-law, and I traveled to a more remote part of the coast for dinner, and I decided to wear that other dress I mentioned in my last post about Lane Bryant. I got this dress as my BOGO Free shopping, and Grown and Curvy Woman showcased it in her Lane Bryant Fashion Style-Off look. It’s a really comfortable and easy dress. I didn’t do much accessorizing, as beach equals simple and comfortable to me, but because the way this dress is designed, it doesn’t need much.



The dress has braiding along the neckline and gathers at the waist. I wore a silver bracelet and my new Nine West Outlet sandals.



The beach makes a much better background than a brick wall, eh?

I’m off to enjoy some more sun. I hope you have fun plans to break in the summer season.

*I purchased this dress with a gift card provided by Lane Bryant. This post was of my own doing, and the item reflects my own purchase decision.

    Love it! I probably looked at it on line, and passed it by because of the stripes (I’m always hesitant to wear them), and because I probably need to wear a strapless bra, which I’m going to have to break down and invest in. But now that I’ve seen it on you, I may have to reconsider this style. I love the color!

      It’s really comfortable. I wore a lane Bryant strapless bra with it and don’t have any problems.
