I recently received my 23andMe DNA results and let me tell you, I was surprised. My entire life, people have asked me, “what ethnicity are you?” I think it’s my olive skin that has always made people think I was exotic (not my words, theirs). Well, although I always thought my dark coloring came from my mom’s Native American heritage, I was surprised to find that I am predominately British and Irish. My dad is a blonde hair, blue eyed guy, so I’m going to guess I got a lot of his genetics. But, here was the surprising part, I am only 4% Native American and an even bigger shocker to me, I’m also 4% African! People have always guessed I was hispanic or Italian from looking at me. Well, I’m neither of those, not one little bit. My ancestry is colorful and it was fun finding out just what I’m made up of.
Dress – c/o All For Color | Sandals | Tote – Similar | Watch – c/o | Necklace
This All For Color dress is just that, colorful, just like me. I love the preppy print and fit, plus it is 50+ UPF sun protective. I would describe the fabric as somewhat swimsuit material. The dress has a lot stretch and is well made. Plus, it has pockets! It is true to size and my readers can take 20% off and receive free shipping with their purchase over $50.00 with my code PUMPS at All For Color. This code also works with their other brand Sloane Ranger, which is preppy and has the most adorable printed bags. I have this banana leaf tote which I’ll be sharing more of coming up!
How I Styled It
Where I’ll Wear It
The print is so summery and bright! I’ll most likely wear this dress to the pool and in a casual way around town. You could dress it up, but the material seems more casual to me.
