Happy Summer, yep it is finally that time of year of rest and relaxation. It is going to be one of those strange summers, one we will reflect back and ponder the why. But for now we shall just celebrate the moments of normalcy. Covid had changed my work style to a more casual vibe and what says casual more than a dress and converse? Celebrating in an Old Navy Swing Dress and leather converse.
Old Navy Olive Swing Dress
Is this not the cutest summer dress? The sleeveless swing dress with tassel ties is actually still available at Old Navy. Shocker for me. I honestly have had the wort luck this year with my Old Navy Orders. Three times now I have ordered waited and then received an email that the dresses were sold out. Argggg
On line shopping has not been kind to me during Covid. By some miracle this swing dress did make it’s way to my home and it is adorable. The perfect summer dress. Flowy and flattering, the swing silhouette has a flared A-line shape you can dress up or down. “A” for effortless.
Olive Swing Dress
The dress has a V-neck, with banded collar and attached tassel ties. The Sleeveless arm openings are perfect for the hot and hazy days of summer. Added detail with the pintucked pleats down center front make it slightly dressy. Not to be forgotten although I forgot to take a picture is the back It has a seamed back waist, with soft shirring.
It is a soft rayon material and feels wonderful on. I ordered a medium but because my boobs are not on the small side I regret that decision. If I was to order again I would go with the L because I found the chest a bit on the small side. I would say this is a not true to size but it is close. I range from Medium to large with Old Navy lately.
And finally the perfect dress to pair with the leather converse. I found these I think last year during the Virginia/Florida Road trip. Sadly they languished in my closet for some reason and then I found this dress. The perfect pairing like wine and cheese or PB and J. They just belong together.
Sad revelation for Linda though. Apparently I am now addicted to converse and purchase them without intent now. On a positive note Summer 2020 will be the year of the Converse in my house No high heels , no booties just fun sneakers for days and days.
Does make a cute look right?
