For the last day of August, I offer: a sundress and bright sandals. The first time my best friend saw me wearing this dress she said, “You look just like Doris Day!”
Paired with a white jacket or sweater, it’s just right for the office on Casual Friday. A Casual Friday like the one I missed last week. . . .
This dress is made of an ultra-light cotton and silk blend (75% cotton, 25% silk), so despite the shirring on the bodice and at the waist, this dress is not bulky. The dots are neither woven nor printed — they’re actually appliques. They look like champagne bubbles.
If you have been following this blog for a few months, you may realize (when you think about it), that I wear black shoes unrelentingly for most of the year. But in the summer, I like colorful footwear. This combination — yellow dress, orange sandals — reflects my preference for combining primary and secondary colors that live next to one another on the color wheel: yellow with orange, red with orange, red with purple, purple with blue, etc. But these combinations are not reserved for summer; looking forward to a beautiful, and colorful, fall here in Washington, DC!
