redhaireddesigner 's Thoughts:

Today was one of the hottest days of the summer, funny that it’s redhead appreciation day and we redheads are no good in the sun and the heat. But I love it. I’ve had this dress forever and I dug it out of the back of the closest to wear today. It’s so light, soft and breezy, perfect for these hot summer days when the wind is blowing and your skirt can be flowing. Also, the longer length in the skirt is key for windy days – I’m sooo paranoid about skirt-up-with-wind accidents… I think this whole weekend spending time with artists and with their work really inspired me to work more on my own work, design, art and otherwise. And if definitely has changed how I put my outfits together.

I had yoga class today and I think this dress was really inspired by my yoga practice. The flowers on those tiny branches they look like large lotus flowers sitting on a Japanese cheery tree. It is such a peaceful dress. I think any dress that is sheer and worn over a simply white slip is always such a lovely feeling, like icing on a cake. To top the dress of I added some more flora and fauna themed accessories. My garden is the other inspiration for this botanical outfit. The hot summer weather has my balcony garden boxes thriving and I’ve never had such a great crop of herbs and veggies. Nothing better than stepping out onto the balcony to add a fresh spring of oregano – turning a simple pasta sauce into a magical dinner.
