Today, a Wednesday, late August, pleasantly warm, surprising as we are now well into the “dog days” of summer. And I had a fairly easy day at work, which is always refreshing. During these last few weeks of summer I am known to live in my sundresses, today was no exception, I went with my Betsey Johnson blue dress, it’s definitely one of the more wearable pieces of hers that I have seen in recent memory. When it comes to my hair, make up and accessories, I tend to keep them as simple as possible during the summer. I like a more “natural” look, covering what I need to and enhancing the better features.
This dress is just a great Summer staple, it’s a nice weight linen, with white ribbon trim and a ruffle hem. I think I picked it up from the Betsey Johnson in Woodbury in 2008, I can’t believe that this dress has held up this long, but I’m glad it did. Today I paired my vintage gold belt and Jimmy Choo flats (another Woodbury find).
Betsey Johnson is one of thouse designers that is just crazy, and I mean that in the best way possible! Whether it’s a crazy print, tulle upon tulle upon tulle, or the cartwheels she does to close every show, she just has an amazing perception on what women’s fashion is and I hope that never goes away! And on that note, it’s time to end!
