Brutally hot weather always pushes me towards this dress. I think it's the giant 80s-style arm holes. Not a very elegant notion, I know, but hey, it's functional.

Finally got a better shot of this kickin' bracelet my lovely husband got for me. I have yet to find an outfit it doesn't like.

Mind Code dress
Rag Doll bandeau
turquoise necklace made by B's dad
Ann Taylor belt
Anthropologie bracelet
Theory bag
Theory sandals
Ray-Ban wayfarers

Such a lovely, summer outfit! The pattern of the dress and the bracelet are like artwork. And I love how the bandeau plays peek-a-boo.
