Fashion Week Day 4: The Silk Sack

This is the kind of summer dress that my husband hates because it's not tight (I do love it when he objectifies me like that). It's precisely because it's not tight that it's the kind of summer dress I love. I'll do most anything to make him happy, but when it comes to clothing touching my body in the deathly humidity of summer I draw the line. I like to think that ruffles and pintucks help, but essentially this is just a silk sack and that's why I bought it.

Dress: Anthropologie from Oliver's Buy, Sell, Trade
Boots: Thrifted in Idaho
Necklace: Some tween accessories store

This made me laugh... my husband is the same way, but aren't they all? :)

I love the deep yellow. I can't pull of yellow, but I love it on other people.
