it’s time to step into summer, ladies! what better way to do that than with a wardrobe staple – the summer dress. with memorial day weekend just within our grasp (how did that happen?), it’s time to lighten and brighten our wardrobe. every year i’m on the hunt for easy-breezy summer dresses. some brands do dresses well, and some not so much. of course, Diane Von Furstenberg spoiled us with jersey wrap dresses that are feminine and flirty and have reached cult status. sundresses are a perennial favorite maxi dresses are oh so fun to wear. take your pick; there is a dress silhouette suited to your body and your taste.
dresses always make it into my suitcase when it’s time to travel. why? they’re one and done! and easy to accessorize. so it was a no-brainer that this cute linen dress came along with me to Tybee last week. it was purchased several months ago from Boden in anticipation of my beach vacay. what caught my eye was the embroidered trim around the neck and hemline that adds a splash of color without going over the top.
table for one. yes, that’s me taking baby steps to travel and dine solo. many of you asked if i went to Tybee all by myself. to which i answer yes. while i love spending time with friends and family, their schedule doesn’t always align with mine. nor should it. but if i want to live a vibrant life, i have to figure out how to be on the go all by myself. do i want to go on vacay with just me, myself, and i? not really. life is so much more fun with a partner. and i loved being married to mr. style loved being part of a team. and i will always cherish all the memories we created together. but now it’s time to learn how to create new memories, even if that means a trip all by my lonesome. guess what? i had fun at the beach! how could i not. and don’t worry, there will be a full recap of the beach vacay starting Sunday. stay tuned!
nothing better than an lwd that’s a wardrobe staple summer dress that will be on repeat all summer long. this cute little number is as comfy as it is cute. since it was purchased several months ago, it is no longer in stock. i know, i know y’all hate when that happens. but i’m happy to report there are similar dresses here, here, and here. many of you have asked about this orange tote from Mark & Graham that’s back in action today. it adds a splash of color and can hold whatever you toss inside with ease. gold metallic sandals are the perfect companion to this summer dress but honestly, pick a color any color of shoe, and you’ll be spot on with your choice.
happy Wednesday, ladies, time to put a smile on someone’s face, including yours.
