Confession: I don't even leave my house until the sun sets because this weather is offensive. If it's one thing that makes braving the Texas temperatures of summertime actually worth the sacrifice, it's the opportunity to slay in my new fave frock that you need, too. Scroll to see more! 


Let's get right to it. You need this dress.💯 If you aren't sold off top, allow me to dish about all the reasons why this stunner is a win. First off, the relaxed straight fit is a forgiving cut that flatters any figure while smoothing out your silhouette real nice like. Sweet details like bell sleeves a low cut tie-back make this dress breezy, beautiful and super duper bomb.
