Crocs and the Everyday Summer Dress



Dress: Banyan Tree
Crocs: Adrina Flat in Aqua/Celery
Jewelry: Michele Lee

Everyone needs a couple of dresses for summer that can be dressed down or dressed up depending on the occasion. This particular dress has such interesting layering in the front that it can totally pass for something dressier. The navy color is classic and goes with anything. However, the light fabric keeps it casual enough for a little impromptu picnic on the beach. In fact there is a little bit of sheerness to it. The bright Crocs really pop against it, as do the blue and gold of the necklace.

Dress: Figwood via Banyan Tree
Crocs: Adrina Flat in Grapefruit/Oyster
Jewelry: Banyan Tree and Michele Lee

I love this look because it is the perfect example of how the translucent material of the Crocs can achieve a more subdued hue if paired with the right thing. This dress has some hidden pink tones that go well with the tangerine Crocs and orange necklace. Having tried on this dress, part of the Figwood collection, Banyan Tree’s in house line, I can vouch for the fact that it is extremely flattering and comfortable. It would be great to wear to a summer barbecue.
