Summer Skin

Dress: c/o Mott 50*; Scarf: c/o Aeropostale; Flats: Asos (similarsimilar)

Whenever function is associated with fashion, the results are disastrous. Think: Crocs. And the snuggie. And pajama jeans (shudder). Items made to be comfy and useful can often achieve those two aims without any glitches, but along the way they lose their stylishness. It's sad. Because who wouldn't want to wear a comfortable, breathable rubber shoe around whilst draped in a backless blanket jacket and wearing stretch waistband pajama bottoms out of the house? I know I've been there.

For those of you that nodded vigorously to the above sentence, please see this ridiculously comfy maxi dress (can I wear it to bed please?) that's not only a pretty maxi dress for the summer, but is also a skin-protective cover up for the beach. Fashion. Meet. Function. I don't know if you're aware that not all fabric is created equal in the sun and skin protection department. You can actually get UV-ray penetration through your clothes. Without actual UPF in the fabric of your beach cover-ups, you're not actually covered-up. It felt like a secret and a terrible crime until I discovered this UPF 50 coverup maxi. If I ever take it off, I'm going to pack it in my suitcase so I don't forget to take it to Hawaii next March.

Don't believe me that Mott 50 is crazy comfy and stylish for your beach travels? Nordstrom carries Mott 50 (they know everything) and Mott 50's coverups are listed in Elle's Spring and Summer must-haves.
