I have not worn a denim dress since, oh I don’t know, middle school. But I recently found this one during an Anthropologie summer dress sale and found it to be a refreshing change from the norm. It has a nice, durable weight, with plenty of stretch, and long enough for work. The tie detail at the waist makes it flattering for all body types, including mama body types.
I’m in the process of moving back to San Luis Obispo, where summers are not quite as cool as in Arroyo Grande, so I know I’ll get a ton of use out of this one over the years. I think it would look good with a colorful sweater for the office or back-to-school night. It seems like a summer staple I can hold onto from season to season.
These pictures were taken during a lunch break at Sextant Winery in Edna Valley. It’s a great little spot to clear your head and fill your tummy during the lunch hour.
