Don’t get me wrong, as an island girl I love warm weather. Summer is a great time for me to wear my favorite striped midi dress and other cute pieces I have in my closet. It’s SO hot and humid in Atlanta right now though. It rains pretty much every day and the heat is so intense that you can literally see smoke coming off of the wet cement afterwards. When the weather is like this, it’s so important to wear breathable fabrics. You may not know this, but Rayon is a breathable fabric. Actually, it has been said that Rayon can be more moisture absorbent than cotton.
The dress I’m wearing today from Urban Outfitters is made from Rayon and I can attest to its breathability. I wore it on a day when the temperatures reached 95 degrees and it felt like I didn’t have anything on. LOL! As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve been totally bonkers over stripes these days. The Square-Neck Striped Midi Dress combines pretty shades of bright color which I LOVE. The length of the dress is modest, while the peek-a-boo back is the icing on the cake! I can’t begin to explain how crazy I am about this dress! To accessorize, I went with my usual light accessories. When paired with my Ark Bag from Cult Gaia…this outfit is summer perfection!

Is this not the cutest dress ever?! The fabric is so light that it made the 90 degree heat a little more bearable. I should probably mention that this dress is currently on sale for only $39.99. You better grab one while they’re still available!
