Flower Power

Chicago personal stylist Bows & Sequins wearing a long sleeve wrap dress.

It’s the last weekend to shop Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, so I’m sharing one last outfit that’s marked down before prices go up on August 6th! (Hard to believe it’s August already, but that’s on Monday, you guys…) I picked out this fun, floral dress because the colorful, mixed prints and bell sleeves just make me happy. 🌸

I’ve always been draw to long-sleeved dresses because of my body type… I like my legs, but usually prefer to not show my arms, unless I’m doing yoga, like, ~5x a week. 💪🏼 I’ve had a hang-up about my arms my whole life, but I’m slowly starting to accept I’ll just never be one of those girls with super toned arms… We all have those areas, right? It’s the first thing I notice in photos and always what I obsess over. I mean, I’ve never been one to plan or think about my future wedding, but I do know that I’ll be wearing a long-sleeved dress. 😂

    Very cute flower dress. Despite that, is polyester suitable for hot summer days? Do your skin breathe well? Always wanted to buy this type of dress but I’m afraid of synthetic fabrics.
