So you know how you have those weeks where everything falls into place, you get all of your to-do list items completed and you finally feel like you got ahead?
I feel like those weeks are unicorns and only exist for the people who either don't work or have only 2 things on their to do list (or both) - because if you are like me...a working gal who has a super busy schedule you know weeks like that just don't happen. I honestly think that if they did I would be bored, so I am not complaining...well, maybe complaining a little. Or simply looking to know that I am not alone in the fact that the to-do list never gets done, it just gets rewritten on a new piece of paper so I feel accommplished. Am I right?!
And these past two weeks have been no exception, in fact they might have been some of the busiest weeks of the summer. We've been traveling, I started a new full time job and traveled to their office to work for a week, I've been teaching spin like a mad lady, keeping up with an intense personal training routine and have been trying to squeeze in as much summer fun with friends and family as possible. It simply doesn't all fit in...and sadly the blog is usually the first to fall by the wayside.
I know many of you have been following along on Insta stories which I love - your comments crack me up - seriously you guys are hilarious. But I really want to get back to doing more of what I love which is content creation with looks from day to day life here in Portland and our travels as well as collaborating with brands that I love.
Which is why I am super excited to share this post because this dress if from a new clothing rental company that I have been trying out called Fashion Pass.
Now...I know what you are thinking - what about Rent the Runway?! And don't worry - I still love and use them too. But I wanted to give a new brand a try because quite honestly I am running out of new things to rent from Rent the Runway because I use it so often!
So when FashionPass reached out to me to try their new service I couldn't resist and have been absolutely loving their pieces.
(which btw - you can try too...and get $60 in FREE shopping...click here)
This dress though, by far, has been my favorite and it likely one of the most comfortable dresses I have ever worn in the softest of cottons and was perfect for the Charleston humidity last week.
This low cut neckline is just the right amount of heelllooo that you want without showing off too much of the girls, and the same goes for the slits on the front (which also make this dress super easy to walk in...especially up stairs). And although you can't see it in these images - the back of this dress is open with a high waist which is incredibly flattering.
Length for me was just right in flats but I definitely could not have worn heels - and for reference I am about 5ft 7in - which is great for me because heels and I usually end up with me either tripping, falling over or getting my heels stuck in the sidewalk. None of which bode well for me or anyone who is with me who ends up laughing after the fact...husband that's you.
Want to give FashionPass a try and get a free $60 to use on their site? Yup...that's right a FREE $60 to use on their site!
Simply click here, sign up and choose your pieces.
The website is easy to use and they have a long list of pieces you can rent from dresses like this, to every day pieces to mix into your wardrode and special occassion items for weddings and such. They also offer a great selection of accessories including jewelry, handbags and sunnies. I have rented a few of each and have been impressed with not only their selection but the quality of the items. Plus they carry some of my favorite brands like Amanda Uprichard, J.O.A, Yumi Kim and my current brand crush, which I highly suggest you try, called ASTR.
