Look of the Day: Dressed in White

 Ahh, summer dressing. The simpler, the better. I live for it. In the winter, I'm tired of layering by Christmas. It takes so much thought and planning.

Warm weather clothing, though, you only need one piece (or two, if one piece is see-through like this dress is).

 This is another fab find from Deseret Industries. It had puffy sleeves, but I cut them off. Puffy sleeves are not my thing. They made it look like a nightgown/choir robe. Subtract the sleeves and I've got a new favorite dress! It's pretty much the same story as this white dress, which is my other favorite dress. Let's see how long I can keep them white, because the other thing I love best about summer is ripe fruit. Disaster in the making. Although, I wore it to my mom's last week, and managed to keep it clean.

What a treat to have enough flowers to cut for a bouquet. I really love floral arrangement and wish I had more room to grow my own flowers. Tilly and Otto get along so well. I'm so glad he loves everyone (Frida was not great with kids).


(Speaking of disaster, I just dropped salmon salad all over my desk)

Aaawww, look at them cuddling and being best friends! :D
I hate puffy sleeves too, I look like Cruella De vil! Adore this simple piece, it's perfect for Summer!

White dresses... so beautiful, but so much potential for disaster. I say come what may, spill what you will spill. Life is too short not to wear white, especially in the summer!

You have just something about you that is just graceful. I love this dress on you and that pixie cut fit you perfectly.
