My friend Kacia sent me a photo of this dress when she bought it and as soon as I saw it I wanted it. If I had to design a dress for myself, this is exactly what it would look like.
I happened to time it just right and bought it during a 25% off sale at J.Crew. It's so comfortable, has a very flattering shape, and is a perfect papaya/orange color. It's simple enough that you could wear a statement necklace to change up the look, or just wear it by itself.
It's made of a fairly stiff fabric, and I think will transition really nicely into the fall and winter. Throw on tights or leggings and boots, and you'll be all set.
