Everyone is saying that summer is over, but it's so not true! Last few days every time I step outside I hit against a wall of humidity and sun. Dressing for the weather and being comfortable is really important for me, and this striped maxi dress fits the bill. It's flowy and forgiving, which is what I needed when I went to the Empire Steakhouse for restaurant week. Can you believe I found it at Forever 21? I actually saw it online first, and then went to the store in person to try it on. I also had it shortened a bit so I could wear it with flats. Can never go wrong with black and white stripes!
