Perfect Dress for an 85 Degree Day

A few weeks ago, for Easter, the fiance and I shared brunch at La Peg and spent the day walking around the city. Little did we know that the temperatures would rise rather unexpectedly to the upper 80s.

Lucky for me, I selected a swingy dress style that morning. The outer layer of the dress fell away from the body while the slip layer clung a bit closer, which allowed me to remain ventilated without risking inappropriate exposure. After walking a few miles through Society Hill, the fiance and I had to take a pit stop at Ela for some air conditioning, drinks, and ice waters.

Let’s talk about these amazing sunglasses, shall we? Krewe du Optic is a New Orleans-based sunglasses and eyeglasses line. Each pair is handmade and feature materials such as yellow gold and rose gold. I grew up on the Gulf Coast, and as such, I love to support local artists. Truth be told, however, I would be as obsessed with these sunglasses if I were from Anchorage, Minneapolis, Baltimore, or Madrid.
