Mad Love for the Marine Layer Muumuu

16


I think that technically this striped number by Marine Layer is called a full-length dress rather than a muumuu, hmm. It’s a long dress with bright colors and a pattern, though, so I think it’s close enough. 🙂

I bought it recently at Nordstrom rack and have absolutely no regrets!

Not only is it cute, it’s made out of 100% cotton, so on really hot days, it feels airy and light against my skin. Super comfy.

I usually wear a size 6, so I followed the size recommendations and ordered a medium, but I think I could’ve sized down with the small too. I don’t mind the slightly larger fit, though. I like that it’s roomy and how it looks like a maxi dress on me. Side note, I’m 5 foot one, by the way.

For summer outings, I think this dress is perfect. You could probably wear it to work too, but I would pair it with a jacket or a sweater because I feel like the neckline does go a little bit low and I like to be covered up.

As for the material, the cotton is soft, but not stiff, and it doesn’t feel crispy against my skin. Oh, and bonus, it’s purposefully crinkly so you don’t have to iron it. You can just wash and wear it. Easy peasy.

Unfortunately, now the dress is sold out on the Nordstrom Rack website, but it’s still available on the Marine Layer website and it’s on sale! And if colorful, rainbow stripes aren’t your thing, they also have it in other striped combinations and solids too. Highly recommended, especially if you live someplace that gets hot during the summer, and you’re looking for is chic, easy-to-wear dress that keeps you cool!

Although I love this dress, I don’t think it’s half as cool as the ’80s themed outfit Connor wore to her school’s closing assembly yesterday.

The theme was new wave music, and so the kids sang a bunch of songs from that musical era. Honestly, I don’t think that half the parents got the references because they’re younger than I am, but whatevs. I rocked out to Tears for Fears and Billy Idol and have no regrets!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
