May was unexpectedly gloomy. Every week I was hopeful for warm, sunny days, but the rain lingered through the end of the month. Our stay at The Clifton Inn was overcast and a little chilly, but we did not let this damper our spirits. We were still able to enjoy the lush gardens and eat a few delicious meals. One bright side, was that this dreary weather gave me the perfect occasion to wear this pleated Black Crane dress. Black is not a typical color for a sundress, but Black Crane is not your typical designer. Everything is simple but meticulous. I had my eyes on this dress for a while before I took the plunge, and I am glad I did. I love that the full pleated skirt gives way to a frayed edge, keeping the look from being overly feminine. Plus, I can wear it with both sandals and heels.
