T.G.I.F! This week was kind of a whirlwind. After coming back from Vegas, sleep deprived, with tons of work to do, we faced temperatures upwards of 95 degrees here in the O.C and I was not really feeling very fashionable. When I’m tired and hot, the last thing I really want to do is put on a nice outfit, curl my hair and cake on make-up. Instead I gravitate towards some denim cut-offs or a loose maxi dress and a messy updo – then I call it a day. While I love a classic black cotton dress, I find that color really shifts my mood and that a bright dress can make me smile in an instant – which is what I really needed the other day. I’ve had this dress longer than I care to admit (to give you a point of reference, I bought it in the junior section when Filene’s basement existed), but it’s my go-to colorful maxi dress in the Summer. Also on my Summer go-to list, flip flops (obviously) and some delicate gold jewelry!
