There are those sunny winter days in Texas when the temptation to pretend it’s summer again is too strong. The sunshine dances on your skin while a balmy breeze stirs up thoughts of hotter days. Living next to the Riverwalk makes sunbathing an easy hobby anytime of the year. And on those days that I can’t resist enjoying the warm winter rays, I’ll take the three flights of stairs down to the water and find a peaceful place to relax before venturing over to the nearest ice cream shop.
To support this yearlong ritual, a light, midi dress is essential. The length will help mask lackluster legs without hiding them from the sun. Having this piece on hand makes for a stylish and effortless look. I styled my taupe dress with a thick chocolate belt, carefree bun and patterned wedges.
