For my entire life, we’ve spent the 4th of July weekend in Rhode Island visiting my extended family. This year was no different. After eating maybe slightly too much pasta in Italy last week, I knew that I needed an extra flattering dress for a family dinner on Friday night near my aunt’s house in Narragansett. This stretchy J.McLaughlin shift is maybe one of the most slimming frocks I own. It reminds me of their striped shirt that I have in the same material (worn here).
I picked it up at the newly renovated and expanded J.McLaughlin store in Greenwich.. If you’re in the area, definitely check it out, they have a ton of great summer pieces right now that will never go out of style. Plus the new space is gorgeous and worth a visit in and of itself.
The dress proved (stretch) worthy through yet another Italian meal complete with my first of many 30th birthday cakes (eek!).
