Mirrored Tropical Print Dress

Zara Dress (similar)  |  Zara Sandals (now $25!)  |  Woven Clutch from the Philippines (similar)
LUV AJ Crystal Cross Necklace (on sale for $93 here!)  |  Essie Blanc Nail Polish  |  ALO Sunnies (Korean brand)

This dress features 2 of my favorite trends this summer: the mirrored look and the tropical print.  Mirrored, symmetrical prints are huge right now and work well on dresses, tops and even pants.  

I love how roomy (translation: forgiving) this dress is.  I had Italian the other night, wearing this dress and after platters of pizza, pasta and calamari, I was still breathing easy while I imagine my counterparts were secretly unbuttoning their pants.  

The hem of this dress is quite short but I realized (the hard way) that the short length is necessary to keep the over-sized dress from looking matronly.  And when I say the hard way, I am admitting that yes, I was the blockhead that took it to the tailor to lengthen it and then took it back to shorten it again, which means I paid twice to get it back to the original state.  Not my proudest moment...
