It’s full summer here in the southern U.S., and that means that the long days are hot, sultry, and sticky. Luckily, I’ve been spending my days whitewater raft guiding and staying cool in the water; but the long days in the sun steering thousands of pounds through technical sections of whitewater leave me sunburned and exhausted. After a long day in “the office,” I am stoked to peel the wet clothes from my skin and slip on this super soft organic cotton Sun and Surf Eco Sundress and kick back with a cold sangria.
I fell in love with this dress because of two reasons: the super soft, cool, and comfy cotton for our southern summers, and I admire the beautiful waves decorating the dress.
Since I live this active, wet lifestyle, I am always searching for clothes that feel comfortable when it’s time to dry off; and Soul Flower’s signature soft, organic cotton fits the bill perfectly. I need a dress that is not binding—that moves and stretches with me and that feels soft against my skin. I am also searching for something that I can go eat sushi in as well as break out some yoga poses on the bank of a river. This sundress has been perfect for all of that!
I am a water person and I love being in the water all the time. I got into whitewater paddling as a way to play in the water, and I stuck with it because the river is a fascinating medium. Becoming involved with rivers has changed my life, so that is what the waves on this dress mean to me—the waves represent the waves that I surf and play on everyday. I love the clear, fresh flowing water in rivers where as I surf, I can look down and see the carved rocks of the river bed and feel the energy of the wave with my boat. Also, the fact that this dress is made using organic cotton is important to me because organic cotton does not pollute our waterways.
This sundress is more than a dress too—it also works as a bathing suit cover up. So, if you are planning to hit the river or the ocean, and you are looking for that soft cover up to drape over sunburned skin that you can then wear into an evening sipping cocktails, eating dinner by candlelight, and/or dancing under the moon until 3am, this sundress is the only one you’ll need to pack. And since it only weighs a few ounces and folds up really small, no matter how you’re traveling, you can be “travelin’ light.”
