    The full skirt is great with the open back.
    Flat sandals would have made this look prettier, though.

    Love the dress, but does anyone else think espadrille wedges look too clumpy? I never got that trend.

    Interesting that you point to the drama in a dress. I believe dresses are dramatic per se. Summer allows for some casual wear of drama, hence the beauty of dresses in sumer time. Lovely shot.

    ok.. i love this. soo flattering. the bow detail is so ironic needs to the overtly sexy expanse of bared skin.. the skirt shape wreminds me of the 50s euro style in some beachy french town….

    I love the dress…and I like the contrast with the shoes…

    But for me I could only wear black or white shoes….

    love this dress! i think the espadrille wedges look great…i would have preferred white ones, but the shoes just add to the nice summery feel of it all.

    Drama in the back… Excitement up front…

    Funny, I too was thinking that espadrille wedges look clumpy… In fact I have never seen anyone look good in espadrille wedges or those platform heels that the shows keep on pushing the general public…

    That’s a great dress – windowpane again…I love the accent of the sash around the waist. Think the espadrilles + bag work with the whole outfit, make it look casual day-on-the-Cote-d’Azure-ish. I feel like she’s referencing Brigitte Bardot.

    At the risk of sounding like my mother, however, the Sart mentioned long cuffs as a pet peeve…I have to say the visible tan lines (bra straps, bikini marks) etc. are one of mine. I do acknowledge, though, that they can be hard to avoid, and some days you just have to expose them in order to not die of heat exhaustion, covered up.

    Dresses are part of what I love most about summer time. They are easy and versatile. Anything goes with summertime dresses, they are more about comfort. Who cares about espadrilles and tan lines. She is daring enough to wear a backless dress before 6!

    I like that she’s wearing tan shoes rather than black or white. Matching is overrated. And being too matchy-matchy often ends up looking more cheap than chic.
