Summertime's a callin' me....


I've definitely turned into a dress wearing girl. I've always loved dresses, but when I started staying at home with the boys, I started wearing shorts more and more. Moving back to S.C. where it's hot more than it's cold...I started to realize that dresses are way cooler than shorts-DUH! Plus, I feel cuter wearing them. When I'm home with the kids, I usually throw on a simple knit dress or a tank and skirt. I'm all about FUN fashion, I love wearing different pieces and making a fun statement with my wardrobe. My neighbor (who is not all that friendly-don't worry she doesn't read this) asked me where I was "going" the other day because I had on a knit dress, I replied, "Not going anywhere, we just got back from the beach and I'm showered and clean and felt like throwing on a dress". Do you have to be "going anywhere" to wear a dress? Anyway, the top dress is one of my favorites and I'm wearing it to a party tomorrow night. It's super-comfy and keeps me cool in the humidity. I've also included some of my other favorites....from J Crew, of course! However, these are not dresses that I wear everyday around the house...just fun summer dresses-either to a party, cook-out, dinner, etc....

They're all so cute, but I think I'd feel like I'd need bloomers on to wear them on an average day. Maybe I'll invent cute but grown-up bloomers for moms with active kids!

Oh, I don't wear these on an average day...I meant just simple, knit dresses...

These are cute. I have been searching for some cute summer type dresses and nothing looks quite right?

Maybe after some more weeks of walking, I may feel better in the dresses. LOL

I'm a big fan of the skirt/t-shirt/flip flop combo. I need to get some new dresses. Maybe one of these days I'll go shopping...

I love dresses too. And skirts...they look much better on me than shorts.

Amen to dresses in SC, Sister! I love the green "shift" style dress! You are inspiring me to go SHOPPING!

I love skirts and dresses too. I don't wear them to work because I'm often on the floor or teeny-tiny chairs, but will often wear them on the weekend. I'm into warm colors this year too - orange, yellow, green. Funny and cheery.

Just found your blog--love it!

I agree. I love wearing skirts much more that shorts.

I'm totally a dress person too. Nothing makes me feel cuter! :-)

I am all dresses all the time this summer- and I am already stockpiling a few for next summer post baby. So much more comfortable. I am dreading the winter when I have no choice but to wear pants!
