If you love feeling feminine, this is the summer for you! It is the summer of dresses! And that does not make me sad. I have always been a fan of cool, pretty dresses and in my part of the world, dresses are a great choice to keep cool during our long, hot summers. It can get so hot in east Texas, you don’t even want to wear jewelry. That is a bold statement for me, a lover of statement jewelry; but it is a fact. Other than a fabulous earrings, the heat can truly make you not want anything else draped on the body. This is going to be one beautiful summer if dresses have anything to do with it. I am confident dresses will have center stage!
I met my daughter in Houston this past weekend and we went to a baby shower at Brennan’s. It was a beautiful day, a beautiful celebration, and every lady there had a dress on, with the exception of myself. I had opted for a pretty in pink, cold shoulder top because I did not have a pink dress. I wanted to wear pink to celebrate the arrival of a baby girl, so this was my choice. Every other lady there had on a dress. We had stripes, florals, eyelet, gingham, solid pastels, embroideried, and more florals. Linen and soft cotton seemed to be the fabric choice. Every dress proclaimed summer had arrived. The calendar may not say so yet, but Texas thermometers say summer is here and here for awhile.
I have also been looking through many catalogues and strolling through shops as often as possible and every store has their own version of beautiful dresses. Maxis, pleats, flirty tassels, scalloped hems, and pompoms are being used to create more fun. It is a summer to celebrate for sure!
Dresses are so much more comfortable when traveling too. Add a cardigan or a fun kimono for night time dining, change the shoe and another outfit has just been created.
Anywhere from The Unique Boutique, Old Navy, Loft, Everlane, Banana Republic, J C Penney, Nordstrom, Talbots, J Crew, and Garnet Hill, just to name a few; dresses are waiting to be tried on, chosen and worn this summer. Along with a fun sandal or cute espadrille, we have the opportunity to feel our prettiest this summer. Express your feminine side, stay cool, and enjoy being a lady….
