Essential Summer Dresses

When the humidity starts to rise, I LIVE in summer dresses.  I want minimal fabric touching my body and dresses fulfill that need.  I have a hard time putting on jeans (although jean shorts are the exception) and find myself reaching over and over again for a dress–any loose dress–in my closet.  These Everlane dresses […]

Five H&M Summer Dresses

You know I don’t need an excuse to go to H&M; it’s one of my favorite inexpensive retailers and has been for years.  The quality has also improved over the years due to them using a lot more natural materials and they always have awesome designer collaborations.  They’ve also adjusted the sizing (it used to […]

Summer Cotton Dress (And The Livin’s Easy)

The Anniversary Sale madness (see my post here) is fun but sometimes you can forget, hey, I don’t actually NEED to wear a sweater right now.  It’s summer!  And what a glorious time it is.  We grilled out last night and enjoyed a delicious heirloom tomato salad with corn on the cob; summer’s bounty is […]

Mini Dresses After 30

 Alright, I’m back in love with mini dresses (this one is exclusive to Bloomingdales) – for summer at least.  The older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve gravitated towards the midi-length styles (the fashions have swayed that way, too) but there was always a mini dress lover deep down inside of me.  Mini dresses are so […]

Sunny Yellow Dress

Happy Friday to you! (Also, wave hi to Foxtrot in the background!)  First of all, I want to thank you all for commenting or reading my last post on politics.  Maybe you agreed, maybe you didn’t, or maybe it bored you, but it’s been something I’ve wanted to say for awhile.  I haven’t responded to all […]
