Last week I talked about a few of my favorite wardrobe pieces I’ve had and loved for many years. Unfortunately, no matter how much you love a piece sometimes a garment wears out. This makes me sooo sad!! This is my good friend, my linen “safari” jacket I bought on my first trip to Paris in 2008. It’s 9 years old! Dang, that’s pretty old!

How Simple Summer Dresses Save Me

I’m pretty sure today is the hottest day of the year so far. Not a complaint by me by any means…I love hot weather! Even so, one of the ways I’ve been keeping cool and comfortable this summer is with simple summer dresses. I know it’s no secret that dresses are easy, just one piece to put on (plus accessories, of course.) The added bonus is that they also keep you cool. But what do I mean by “simple”?
