Blue Streak

As bloggers, I feel like we're always looking for something new to be obsessed with.  First it was macarons, then donuts, now we're on to pool floaties that look like donuts.  Our obsessions change seasonally. But I want to tell you about something that I'm actually 100% obsessed with - the Lilly Pulitzer Marlowe Dress.

I love easy pieces... love them.  I'm experiencing a minor flare up with my chronic illness right now, and steroids are doing weird things to me.  My tummy, knees, hips, and cheeks are starting to swell up, and my skin is more sensitive than usual.  I'm irritable, and I want easy and no fuss.  When I tried this dress on, I didn't want to take it off.  It's super soft against my skin, it doesn't make me feel like I'm going to die of a heat stroke, and it's versatile.  (It's also under $100.) 

 I wore it to work on Wednesday styled like this, and then again to work yesterday with Kendra Scott Danielle earrings, a side fishtail braid, and Jack Rogers sandals.  (It's embarrassing to admit that I wore a piece of clothing two times in six days, but coming back from vacation is hard.  Also, I'm sunburned and it's the softest thing I own.)  While I was in Savannah, I picked it up in this print, as well, and the Gift With Purchase happened to be bangles that matched, so I'm pretty happy with how that turned out.

Hope y'all are having a very happy Tuesday!  Since I told you about my current obsession, I'd love to know what you're all about at the moment!
