The Perfect Throw-on Dress

Must Have Piece: The Perfect Throw-on DressLush ‘Karly’ Shift Dress, $48


I don’t know about you, but my Facebook feed is currently filled with pictures of friends and family on or just back from vacation. We are also helping a few clients get ready for some long weekends that involve mornings at the pool and casual lunches at the resort.

When you are staying at a resort, it’s important to pack a few “throw on” dresses. This is what you wear to grab breakfast or coffee in the morning or in between your afternoon activities and going out for the evening. Because I don’t like to pack much, this dress will get lots of use for some upcoming trips.

We head out for a long weekend in Vegas in a few weeks, and this is just what I want. I can put it on to catch a late night snack and cocktail after my very long flight in, and then can go to the pool with it in thew morning – where I plan on staying and reading until it’s time to get ready for dinner.

This dress comes in an array of lovely colors. The model is my height (about 5’10), so it’s on the short side. I’m not wearing heels with it because I don’t need the extra height. Instead, I’ll wear gold flat sandals, but by all means rock a heel with this and have some fun. For the price, you could pick up a few.
