My Perfect Summer Layering Dress

Hope you all had a great weekend and for those that celebrate Father's day, I hope it was a great day filled with lots of love.  This Father's day was especially tough for me since it marks my dad's passing   2 years ago.  I have not experienced much death in my life and it still hurts and I miss his infectious laugh and friendly ways.

One of the things that I learned after he passed was how good hearted he was.  When my dad retired, he used to drive to the bus depot and catch the bus to go to town to pick up things.  He made friends with the elderly Chinese people on the bus and gave ride home to them so they don't have to wait and transfer to another bus to get home.   We are all so addicted to our phones now days that we barely even talk to anyone.

So on this day, I just wanted to say - be friendly to every one even if it's just a smile to a stranger.

I wanted to talk about this sweater dress, it's the perfect summer dress.  Why?

  1. It's cotton.  Enough said, who wants to wear polyester in the summer?
  2. It's loose fitting.  I can't stand anything fitted during the summer and it just feels so much better when clothes are loose and comfy.
Our temps were in the 100s this weekend and it was not fun, outfit like these make it a little more bearable.

I have worn this dress pretty much the same way in these outfits.  It's a dress that I know will be on heavy rotation this summer.

What is your summer staple?
