Okay, so let me start off with the fact that this dress is the most comfortable dress I have ever worn! Seriously it feels like I'm not wearing anything. Believe it or not I actually bought it at a rest area when we were on our road trip. I'm glad I grabbed it! (along with some post cards and magnets) Also, I'm very self conscious of my arms, but it's too hot in New Jersey to even think twice! We just had a crazy storm come through here and it seems to have left us here in even hotter weather. I hate hot weather! I hope fall gets here soon!
