A dress to match the summer because the season of the sun is upon us! Temperatures are rising in Charleston and though my skin is pasty white, I can’t help but tempt fate by whipping out all the mini items in my closet. The Spanish moss sways, the shadows freckle the sidewalks and sun freckles my nose…when I think of home, this is what I picture. It’s not hard to love the blue ombre of hydrangeas dotting manicured lawns; nor the pops of pastel mansions punctuating the quiet coastline. And as my mood lifts to match my surroundings, so does the color spectrum of my wardrobe.
Dresses come and go like seasons, but for a fleeting moment they are there to encourage our every whim. A great dress can make us feel free as the breeze or bright as a blossom. I prefer to be a chameleon whenever possible in summer…so in love am I with my surroundings that I blend like a mirage into the saturated scenery. That feeling, my friends is why I clutch for new frocks as the sun takes its longest stride. It’s true that everything that could be perfect fades, but in the ripest moments of summer, I’m looking through a kaleidoscope that keeps on turning. That’s pretty much perfection to me. Here’s hoping this season brings you many of these moments…and dresses to match!
