the summer of dresses

Did I mention that summer 2008 is going to be the summer of dresses for Saucy? All dresses, all the time. How simple is that? It's like dressing in a jumpsuit or something like that, you don't have to put an outfit together, just throw on a dress and you're out the door. Yesterday I found my first two frocks:

First I found this soft cotton halter dress at Tommy Bahama, Veto's favourite store. Honestly, I really was shopping for him. This dress is so comfortable, so soft, and it wears like a dream. It's the nicest shade of chocolate brown... ready to be accessorized with ivory, pink, blue or any of those nice light colours that look so nice with brown. I think I'm going to wear this to see James Taylor in 103 days.
For my cousin's wedding in July, I found this little number at anthropologie... she's asked everyone to wear "a twist of lime" that day, be it on your dress, your handbag, maybe just a lime tie for the men. This oh-soo comfie dress has deep lime straps and details. And pockets! Genius. I have a lovely dark chartreuse wrap that will set it off nicely.

Honestly, I found the cutest shoes to go with both dresses and so I'm just tickled. I'm also spying this little number before I leave town... what do you think... is it a little too "Hawaiian vacation" for me? The comfort level was 10/10 and even at full price, I loved it. You know how much I detest full price.

The first 2 are cute, but I kind of agree that 3rd one is too Hawaiian vacation. No. 1 will look adorable when James sings to you...

I like all three and I wouldn't be able to get on the plane without having them packed into my luggage. Wearing the 3rd dress will be a bit like bringing home the Hawaii. Buy it!!

The Hawaiian dress is a little over the top but would pull off nicely on a summer's evening on your patio and beside the pool while entertaining...

What great dresses you found; I like them both. I'm finally getting it in my head that dresses are much more comfortable in Arizona's heat than anything else--well, a simple pareo is my favorite but not appropriate for every occasion. Anyway, great shopping booty and with shoes to match, Miss Saucy!

I do agree that you are correct; I think I will take Veto back to the Tommy Bahama store and I will manage to slip that little number in with his socks and golf shirts! If this summer is anywhere like last, and we are still sans air conditioning at our house - well then I'll need it.

Saucy, Saucy, Saucy! What has come over you? Full price, you say? The LAST time I remember you paying full price for anything was your wedding dress! I think you are just making plans for the night you will have with Veto on your arm and JT looking in your eyes! Buy 'em all and change at intermission!!! the fanxoxox
