How breezy and fun is this white dress! This isn’t something I would normally reach for when I am shopping for a summer dress, but now that I have it, I love it! Let me tell you the backstory on how this flowing white dress ended up in my wardrobe. . .

If you read my posts last week, you might know that my original outfit for the “Escape to Tulum” welcome party at the rewardStyle conference did not work out as planned. The outfit I wore instead was what I had planned for the last day of the conference. On the last day, there was a Garden Party theme, and my outfit had been planned accordingly. Since I already wore the Garden Party outfit to the pool party, and this was a conference filled with fashion bloggers, I couldn’t really wear it again. So, this meant I needed to buy something! The horror!

Luckily there was a shop in the building across from our hotel, so Alison from Wardrobe Oxygen went over with me to find something quickly for the last day of the conference. I did have an extra skirt in my suitcase, so I thought I would find a cute black, navy, or white top to match it. I couldn’t find anything basic, or easy to pair with a skirt. We scoured the store. Normally when I shop, I can find something quickly, but just my luck, nothing was basic at all!!

Alison eventually found some racks in the back, so we flipped through them, and voila! There was this white dress! I have always admired Apiece Apart from afar, but never actually purchased something from them. So, I was excited to acquire my first piece from their collection. Yay!

This dress flowed, and was nice and breezy. If it had been a warm day, it would have perfect. Unfortunately the weather was in the 40’s with a cold, icy wind tearing through the area. I was a little bit cold, but it is OK. I know I will get a lot of wear out of this dress as the temperatures rise; after all, summer is on it’s way! Love that!

Have you ever had to shop last minute while on vacation? How did it turn out?

Thanks for stopping by!
