Splendid maxi skirt/tube dress | size medium (this one is charcoal – not the same color as the one in the link, but close, I also have black)
Robert Clergerie Pepo sandals
Admonish custom leather tote
I can’t even with this heat…Also, having a migraine every day doesn’t help. What does help is being able to just throw on this dress and go. I tend to wear these Splendid skirts/dresses (I have two) as skirts most often, but even if I don’t wear them as dresses, it’s nice to know I can, you know? And I do love them as dresses. I’m wearing it over a free people strapless bra, which is AMAZING btw, and not available anymore (I got it in the store on the sale rack), so it’s not in danger of falling down. I’m totally comfortable in it; all the better to show off my toned shoulders/arms in. Can you believe it?? Last summer I wouldn’t have been caught DEAD in even a sleeveless top…
You look GORGEOUS! And happy (despite the heat 😉 I’ve been wearing maxi dresses to work too…
You look amazing Grechen — seriously, the prettiest look of the summer. Congrats on your awesome, strong arms and shoulders!!
wow. thank you so much julie!
That is an incredibly lovely look for you! You really look fantastic, and well suited for the hot weather! Great look!
Thanks for posting this!
Sorry I’ve been MIA. I’ve been on vacation in Chicago, visiting that new granddaughter and having too much fun.
You look fantastic in that dress/skirt. I get SO inspired by your strength and new-found comfort with your body. It is really noticeable, Grechen, that you’re happier with your “shell” even though the inner you has always seemed pretty confident. Congrats on doing the hard work.
You look absolutely stunning in that outfit!

Lovely dress .. I haven’t ventured into the tube type dress .. almost bought one from INC (Macy’s), but just wasn’t comfortable with bare shoulders (gasp!) .. lol. Maybe next summer 😉
i’ve missed you val!!
and thank you 🙂
thanks monica! i will admit, it was a little hard for me to commit to wearing the dress all day, but i did! even to happy hour with a friend. i was glad i wore it because it was HOT, and i felt comfortable, but having my shoulders bare was very strange, i kept thinking i should put something on. and i did almost bring a chambray top to throw on just in case, but i didn’t…i went all in. and i lived through it 🙂
The weather isn’t the only thing that’s hot! 😉
You look great, and as I’ve said before, it’s just as much from your inner glow and confidence as from the weight loss!
