I’ve waxed nostalgic about the brand, Xirena, for years now. They make the most comfortable cotton-gauze pieces that are perfect for everyday wear! I own multiple pieces by the brand, but my favorite styles are definitely their dresses. This Cate dress, in particular, is my go to travel dress! Not only are these dresses super comfortable and fabulous for flights, they pack well, are wrinkle-resistant and are machine washable. I can wear this look on the plane, wash and hang to dry, and wear it again on the trip or for my flight home!
I already owned the black version (which I wore on my flight to Sao Paolo in April!), but saw this olive green one pop up on Shopbop and knew it would be a great transitional piece I can wear from summer into fall. It got plenty of use in California a few weeks ago, and it’s something I’ll definitely be packing again for Colorado in August! This dress also comes in this salmon pink color if that’s more your speed. Xirena has other dresses in this same gauze fabric that you might want to check out as well – don’t miss this, this, this and this! As far as sizing goes, I actually own a medium in the black dress and a small in the green dress. The fit is only cinched a little at the waist, but fairly loose everywhere else!
