I have a thing for summer dresses. I think it started years ago when George told me that he had a thing for summer dresses.
Wearing a dress takes the effort out of putting an outfit together.
I simply slip one item on and I am ready. Cool and comfortable.
Short or long. Light or dark.
Sleeves or no sleeves. Tie or no tie.
I often associate events with what I was wearing. My summer dresses hold special memories - weddings, parties, birthdays, family dinners, going out or staying home and doing nothing at all. I've even gone swimming in one of my dresses. I hope that these dresses survive many more summers and capture countless more memories. The new dresses will eventually become vintage, the vintage dresses will become antiques. It won't be much longer before Avery raids my closet and makes memories of her own in my beloved dresses.
Of course the passing of summer doesn't mean I have to put all my dresses away. With the right accessories, some dresses will transition right into fall.
And by accessories I mean Dansko clogs and wool cardigans - the clothing that defines a different season.
