Caught in the Midst of a Desert Storm

Posted on Location: 1 m read

Last week, temperatures finally dropped below 100 degrees and we were confronted with a desert storm! We rarely get cloudy days out here, so naturally, David and I were pretty excited about it. Don’t get me wrong – I am totally a sunshine kinda’ gal, but a change of scenery is refreshing every once in a while. Plus, clouds can really make photos look more dramatic and interesting! We decided to drive out to Salton Sea to watch the sunset and it was a very beautiful night. There was even some thunder & lightning.

My dress is from Verychi, a European clothing line. I’m generally not a huge fan of midi dresses because they’re not always the most flattering, but this one definitely grew on me. I got this number in an XS and with the tie-around belt, it fits perfectly. Made with 100% lyocell fabric and the cutest little buttons, it’s such a great transitional summer-to-fall piece. When it gets cooler, I’ll be accessorizing this dress more with hats, outerwear pieces, and boots. Until then, I’m holding onto summer for as long as I can… especially now that it’s very bearable and comfortable out. Fall in the desert is oh-so pleasant – I love it!

Have you been feeling the change of seasons where you’re at these days?

    First of all, that storm seems like a beautiful story. Look at that pink sky. It’s so beautiful! Love your dress too, it’s such a beautiful summery yellow. So lucky to still have summer while every where else is preparing to winter.

    We are still kind of waiting for the season s to change over here in Houston, but getting some stormy weather in the interim I guess!! This yellow is mmmm-good on you! Love it– I think you pull the midi length off very well :-))

    First of all, such beautiful photos! And secondly, I wish it was actual fall in New York! Today is was 80 with 93% humidity. And we’re October 10th. HI global warming lolol

    • Sharon Wu
      October 11, 2018

      Wow, 80 degrees sounds like pure bliss to me… but not 93% humidity. Holy moly! That sounds worse than the humidity in Asia! I hope that the weather will get better over there soon for ya πŸ™‚

    October 11, 2018

    That’s a really lovely dress…comfy yet elegant. You look good in it. By the way, like the photography & the background colours complement the ochre yellow of your dress well.

      Thank you girl! It was a beautiful night. It’s getting chillier over here during the mornings and nights but still in the 80’s and 90’s during the day. Not too much of a seasonal change but still a difference from the 100’s so I’m grateful haha!
