What’s better than enjoying a warm evening on a porch or roof deck, eating and drinking with friends? Not much, really. Here’s an outfit for a more festive backyard gathering — not necessarily a barbeque at the man-cave of one of your boyfriend’s buddies. You know. This dress from Zara is fairly versatile (sort of a stepped-up beach coverup) and I love that the black side stripes and neon block of color give it a sporty edge. The heels are juuust high enough to elongate the legs, but the chambray button-up tames the whole outfit (it’s a pretty short dress…).
