Outfit: Teal Peplum Dress

Hello everyone! 

It has been a very busy week for me. I've been packing for two trips, and it doesn't help that the climates are on the opposite ends of the spectrum...not to mention I am an avid over-packer. I'm flying out to visit my family in Louisiana, where the weather is still hot and humid. I am due back in Atlanta next Tuesday, and leaving the next evening with my husband and mother to Dubai and Istanbul for 10 days. Dubai's weather is going to be very similar to Louisiana's minus the humidity, and Istanbul is going to be between 50 and 60 degrees. Can you see my dilemma?

As always, thank you so much for reading!
