Sundress Day

Sundresses are one of the happiest things about Summer.

I dare you to disagree.

And don't let her fool you - she agrees wholeheartedly.

I know the whole lot of you is clamoring for boots and chunky tights and cardis.

And I'm with you, I suppose.


But first, one last, sticky-air tribute to the dresses that fancy us Cape Codders, the frocks that make Winter feel miles away.

To the sundress!

*EDIT*
My dress was purchased 3 years ago from my beloved TJ Maxx. Ruby's was found 2 years ago at Old Navy. Score!

  15. I'm going to pretend you and Ruby are off to a Mother's Day tea party and it really is May and not the end of August! I mean I enjoy crunchy leaves and pumpkins as much as the next gal, but the first picking of strawberries takes the cake for me.

  29. You read my mind. I just had to know where your ruffly, lavender, striped frock came from. It is divine. Ruby's too. And speaking of Ruby, may she ever have those delicious cheeks; I think they are the most endearing accessories.
