NOT YOUR AVERAGE CANDY STRIPER

THIS DRESS IMMEDIATELY MAKES ME THINK OF OLD RIBBON CANDY, THE CIRCUS AND CANDY STRIPERS. ALTHOUGH IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY OF THOSE THINGS, I DECIDED IT'D BE A GREAT OUTFIT FOR WHEN YOU JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU WANT TO WEAR. IT'S THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF "FASHION" BUT ALSO BORDERLINES PAJAMAS, SO I MEAN, THAT'S A DOUBLE WIN, RIGHT? LAST WEEKEND DAVE AND I SPENT THE DAY IN ASBURY PARK. THE WEATHER WAS ANYTHING BUT BRIGHT, SO I FIGURED WITH CLOUD RIDDEN SKIES, I'D LIVEN UP THE DAY BY THROWING ON THIS FROCK. PRO TIP: DON'T WEAR IT ON A DAY THERE'S EVEN A 1% CHANCE OF RAIN BECAUSE WHITE SILK AND WATER ARE NOT AND WILL NEVER BE FRIENDS. LUCKILY, WE WERE INDOORS FOR THE RAIN AND I MANAGED TO STAY DRY AND COMFY ALL DAY. PLUS, I BLENDED RIGHT IN ON THE ARTSY STREETS OF ASBURY.
