The other day, I decided to go for an impromptu walk to an early dinner with my brother on the cutest street in West Hollywood, Melrose Place. If you don’t know, my brother and I are really close and there’s nothing more that I enjoy doing that spending quality time with him. He listens to me, he lets me talk (to a certain extent) and I’m always laughing when I’m with him and most of all I don’t need to feel like I need to impress anybody. With the last few months being quite a whirlwind for me, being able to live so close to my brother means everything to me. I’m grateful for all of my girlfriends, but sometimes there’s nothing quite like being able to hang out with blood and know they’re not going to ask you questions you realllly don’t want to answer.

Now, for this really cute blue midi dress, let me just start by saying just how SOFT it is. I didn’t want to take it off, I could have slept in it and worn it for days. You can dress it up with some heels and a leather jacket or keep it simple the way that I did. With the weather getting warmer and warmer here in LA, I’ve enjoyed wearing loose-fitting clothing and this dress was just that; comfortable, loose-fitting and so cute. What more could you really ask for? It’s also the perfect outfit to wear to the beach, a bridal shower or really anything. I will point out that because of the strap situation, I suggest getting a NuBra or something like it. I recently got one for myself after struggling to decide whether I can pull off just not wearing one, but sometimes it just doesn’t slide.
