Hi there mamas. Nothing beats a hot summer day like a cool cotton dress. This JCrew number, which I recently bought on sale, is so easy and comfortable to wear. The fitted top and wider, flowy bottom make for a nice silhouette. The dress is just fancy enough for a nice lunch while casual enough for a day touring around or running after kids. I love the small print comprised of blue, red, white and mauve flowers.
I wore this dress last weekend as Marc and I headed down to the beach in Barcelona to meet Marc’s best friend Jonnie and his lovely wife Virgina for lunch. Marc’s had a big adjustment to Spain since he doesn’t speak Spanish and knows fewer people here than I do. It was so great to see him smiling and chuckling alongside his best buddy. They met over 30 years working in a law firm together in New York and have been the best of pals since.
Sleeveless cotton dress
If you’ve been working out your arms at a bar or yoga class, a sleeveless dress provides an opportunity to show them off! I tend to like fitted clothes so I fell for the top of this piece which is snug and offsets the wider bottom. The day proved to be a bit windy thus witness me making sure my dress did not fling open!
On the bottom, my white studded DSW sandals with a comfortable block heel. I could wear them all day long. This dress would also look great with white sneakers, camel-colored heels or any sort of flat sandal or flip-flop.
Tell me about a dress you have your eye on for this summer. Thanks so much for reading and check back in soon!
