I usually avoid white clothes–it gets dirty too easy, I inevitably spill something on it, etc.–so this dry-clean only blazer was a bit of an impractical choice. But I find myself wearing it on a weekly basis. It has turned into one of my summer staples, great with dresses and with jeans.

Based on comments from friends, I should wear this easy and comfortable dress more often–three people told me I looked tall. At barely 5’4″, that’s something I never hear! The dress is still too long for me to wear flats, but wedges work just fine.
I give to charity on a regular basis and barely glance at the brief thank you note on my receipt. I recently gave to a classroom in the Bronx on Donation Day #2 (for completing tasks on my 101 Things in 1001 Days list) and received this note from the teacher. It was unexpected, heartfelt and made my day. You’re welcome!
“Short girls don’t wear long skirts,” says my mom and every style advice column. But they are fun and vibrant, and, let’s face it, hard to miss this season. I love the colorful prints and easy elegance of the full skirt. This is my first attempt at a maxi dress, a skirt that I’ve pulled up and belted into a strapless dress. Even so, it almost reaches my ankles–not sure I’ll ever be able to wear it as a skirt without sky-high wedges! I felt girly, relaxed yet polished, perfect for rooftop cocktails with friends.
