On steamy-hot summer days, a cool dress is often your best bet. I spied this one on a recent visit to Zara. I’m a sucker for any blue and white pattern, but especially stripes. And for me, this dress is the perfect balance of easy fit with it’s drawstring waist and tailored details. In fact, it’s such a fun dress I simply had to style it two ways.
It’s officially Summer! What could be easier than to slide into your next favorite sandal. As you can see from my round-up, I’m mostly going for flats. Which is really how I live. I like to be able to make tracks when I need to, and flat sandals afford me that freedom. That being said, you gotta go for heels every now and then. And my block heel option gives your legs that lift while allowing you true walkability.
I’m going to try not to take myself (or fashion) too seriously in this post, but it’s been quite the weekend. On Friday, our youngest son Chanler turned 22. And today, it’s both Father’s Day and our 29th Wedding Anniversary. Wow, where do the years fly to? But now for more important things…like this outfit…and why I thought it was kind of wacky but actually love it. And to think it all started with this graphic-yellow-one sleeved “mystery” tee…
“Summer Color” used to mean slathering on baby oil and getting your tan on. Not anymore. These days the only thing I’m slathering on is sunscreen. So I’ve been on the hunt for other ways to color my days (and nights). I actually saw this adorable tee dress on Cathy Williamson’s The Middle Page. She is a super successful, 50-something Dallas Fashion Blogger. And like me, when she wears a “tee” it’s usually paired with jeans. But this dress was too cute to pass up. And too cheap! As in $13!! I promise it looks pretty great in person. As proof, I previewed it on our walking tour around Savannah. Chris could not believe how many people complimented me on it.
After 9 days “on the road” and probably too much sun, my skin was in dire need of revitalizing nourishment. This amazing mask did the trick…and then some. I highly recommend it!
Well, we drove to Delray Beach Florida. And back. And we’re still married and still speaking. I think you get the idea. When Chris proposed this getaway I was supremely skeptical. But he said he would do most of the driving. And he did! Except for 2 1/2 torturous Virginia hours on the way back. Breaking the drive up definitely helped.
I’d say we had one stupid fight, but our trip down was initially sabotaged by monsoon like weather, although we had an awesome visit with my college roommate Kathy, her husband Bruce and son Keith in Virginia Beach and Williamsburg.
The bad weather finally lifted when we arrived in Bluffton, SC. Super cute town. Sorry we only got to spend one night there. We loved our restaurant find, Farm. You will too!
