Hello fellow fashion-loving mamas. I’m always on the lookout for “the white dress” for summer. A dress that looks casual yet fresh, and can withstand the heat and humidity of hot summer days and nights.
Summer Outfit Ideas
When it comes to pretty outfits, I’ve always loved white eyelet. Eyelet says classic (it made for a classy outfit in the the 50’s and 60’s) but lately, you’ll find designers transforming this fresh and comfortable fabric into modern styles. I bought this JCrew dress on sale a few weeks back and it’s since become a staple. I’ve worn it a lot during the day, and also threw it on for dinner on the beach in Barcelona with my friend Tara and our boys.
As all the boys played soccer on the beach, we kicked back and enjoyed a glass of cool white wine. Life was good. Mama extraordinaire Tara runs her own business (you’ve seen her awesome frames here on CloudMom!), has a background in television production, and is herself a talented photographer. She’s also an affectionate mom to two talented boys who are buddies of mine. Lucky for me, Tara agreed to shoot these photos. Thanks Tara!Here’s the dress form the back. Transparent enough to be a wee-bit sexy but still discrete enough to wear for nearly every occasion. FYI I only have a few pairs of shoes for our summer trip, so you’ll recognize these DSW studded sandals. I live in them. Tara and I shared a few wonderful nights together here in Barcelona and I’m grateful for her friendship and the great memories.
Here’s to friendships, fun times, and kicking back together! Don’t forget to enter our giveaway below and check back next week for more fashion giveaways!
