*Tap Tap* Is this thing on?!
Sorry it's been quiet over here of late. Life has been a little hectic and I also had to deal with some website issues that are now thankfully resolved!
Today I'm bringing you an outfit that I've been living in the past month or so. It's comfortable, fun, and colorful.

Leota is a brand I discovered through my Gwynnie Bee subscription, and I love how comfortable their fabric always is. It travels really well – I balled it up and threw it in my suitcase for a trip to Montana a couple weeks ago. No wrinkles, but it's also breathable – pretty remarkable for a stretch blend. You can't see it very well in these photos, but there are some gathers underneath the arms and down the side of the dress. It just has a little extra flair.
With Gwynnie Bee, you can wear and return (they call this rent-and-return) or wear and buy (borrow-and-buy). This is a piece that is likely a rent and return for me. I've worn it a few weeks now in pretty heavy rotation, but with weather getting cooler, I'd rather free up closet space for the fun fall fashion coming out. Doesn't mean I didn't love it – just means that I didn't love it to commit precious closet space to have it for longer.
If you've not tried Gwynnie Bee before, they have a 30 day free trial. You can rent, return, and repeat as much as you'd like within that 30 days without paying anything. If you don't feel like it's a good value for you, cancel before the 30 days are up and send them any garments back. It's an easy way to get 30 days of free clothes, or if you're like me, you may end up becoming a rental addict.
What do you think – would you rent and return or borrow and buy this one?
