The photos in this post were taken at one of the most beautiful locations I’ve ever seen. I never thought a place like Great Sand Dunes National Park existed in the states. When the dunes first came into view, they looked just like a painting, but knowing they were real was absolutely mind blowing. Too bad walking through the dunes wasn’t quite as magical as looking at them. It was freezing, windy, and of course sandy. It feels like walking on a cold beach, except with a steep incline. It wasn’t at all like I’d imagined watching Aladdin as a kid (we would have killed for a magic carpet to take us to this spot)! And if you have to ask, the answer is yes, I did serenade my sister with “A Whole New World” through shivers as we ascended the massive dunes.
The Nila T-Shirt Dress is one of the most comfortable dresses I own. It feels like wearing a giant t-shirt (well, a giant t-shirt that’s actually flattering). The fabric is so soft that it’ll instantly become the dress you throw on to go shopping, run errands, and even go have lunch with your friends. It can be dressed up with a belt, hat, and booties, or you can simply wear it on its own with some cute sandals. It could even double as a beach coverup!
What’s unique about this t-shirt dress from others is the cut. The V-neck is flattering on everyone giving the impression of a longer and leaner silhouette. There are also two slits on each side; they make it easy to walk since the dress isn’t quite as flowy as your typical maxi. The slits aren’t too high though, so you don’t have to worry about getting Angelina Jolie vibes circa The Oscars in 2013.
I love the Benoit Belt for a couple of reasons. For starters it goes with most everything and it’ll give even the plainest dress a little bit of flair. It looks just like a wrap belt tied in the perfect knot when really all you’ve done is close the snap closure in the back (cause who wants to spend time trying to make a knot pretty everyday? Not this chick).
