I love all the pictures of my Mom in South America in the 1970s with what appear to be very chic caftans and muumuus. At least, that’s how I’m going to glamorize them. I’ll find some pictures to share.
I have a couple of super cool (as in, not toasty) dresses that can go with or without straps, and they are my summer staples. I call them my house dresses, and only partly tongue in cheek. I loving something effortless to survive warm weather and chores around the house and garden that is at least a step up from ragged shorts and tank tops. At least, that’s what I’m going to tell myself.
Even better is the nostalgic vibe I get when said house dresses are fluttering in the breeze on the clothesline. It was always a simple goal of mine to have one, and I’m lucky to have an accommodating husband who hung one for me on the back patio. Do you have a summer wardrobe staple, and do you use a clothesline? I need to use mine for more than just non-dryer-friendly items. Any tips on avoiding clothesline crunchiness?
By the way, if you’re not already familiar check out the My Mom, The Style Icon blog and the regular feature in Lucky magazine. I looove it. More on this subject to come.
Around here, it has to be almost Wordless Wednesday, because I can’t really live without words. I’m using these posts to share a few of the small but meaningful things around our home – the tattered remnants and found objects that make me smile.
