A New Dress From Stitch Fix

I use to live in shorts all summer long, and I don't know what happened, but I just never wear shorts outside my house anymore.  I always reach for cute summer dresses or skirts when I go out.   I find them so much more comfortable and cooler to wear than shorts.  Which is so odd, because I love pants and I wear them all winter long.  You rarely see me wear a dress in winter.  But come summer, and those dresses come out!

So because I'm a comfy, cute dress kind of gal, I was THRILLED to see this dress in my May box from Stitch Fix.  Gals, this dress has spandex in it...yet it's not tight like most spandex items.  It's stretchy, so it gives when I move.  And although it's nicely fitted, it's loose and not touching much skin so I stay nice and cool in it.   I wore it  on a hot, 80+ degree day and I was cool and comfortable as I could be.


My husband, who is always highly opinionated about all of my Stitch Fix items, loved this dress so much he wants me to look up the brand and order more in other colors.  I told him, "I think I'll just live in this dress all summer long." 😊


The dress is by Wisp and is called Hanna Knit Dress.  I did google the brand to see if I could find more styles like this, but no such luck.


I really liked the pretty colors and pattern in this dress;  especially the hemline.  I also thought it was a good length for a casual summer dress.  Because I'm so tall (5'7) with very long legs,  so many dresses end up too short on me.


I accessorized my dress with coral earrings and a white and coral bracelet.  I carried a blue cross body  bag (all old).



For the photo shoot I wore white sandals, but when I actually wore the dress on a car shopping trip I wore it with athletic sandals.  That's another thing I love about this dress:  I can dress it up or down by changing out the shoes and accessories.


My sun hat I picked up at H&M last spring.

  4. Very pretty! I love summer dresses... but not usually on me. I try them on all the time but am just more comfortable in capri pants. I did branch out and buy two dresses this year; one ankle length and one shorter that I have not yet worn and keep debating about returning.

    1. Thank you. I actually stopped wearing capri's because I didn't like the way they looked at me. The way they stop half way down the leg was unflattering for me. Now, If I do wear summer shorts or pants, I choose Bermuda shorts or ankle length pants.
