Orange you glad

Things have been quiet around the blog, but life has been busy otherwise. More about that soon! Houston summers aren’t exactly fashion friendly but I’ve got to (re)start somewhere!

What better to embrace summer than fun, bright prints? Not that you could tell from today – a balmy 60°F. Houston likes to keep you on your toes.

This is the “Her fifties” dress from eShakti. The style works great for my body but they do not believe in pre-shrunk cottons. That’s a rant for another day…

  1. Yay! Such a bright, sunny look! Last year, we moved from Michigan to Savannah and had to embrace the hot coastal summer. A few months ago, we moved from Savannah to Nashville, and I’m hoping we’ll have a milder summer here. Last summer my hair was in a bun everyday, and I didn’t wear much make-up because it all melted off anyways. I’m hoping I can have a little more of a beauty routine this summer! I’ve been wearing lots of colorful prints to usher in the summer, too. The vibrant orange of that dress is just stunning on you!

    • Thank you Liz! Moving from California to Texas had a similar effect on me… sometimes the heat/humidity combo just doesn’t work with fashion – ha. I hope you find a milder summer in Nashville!
