I was just saying today that I don’t really own very many dresses (compared to pants, that is). I can see why dresses are the top choice for some people: you can move about without restriction, you always look a little dressier than everyone else, and you can show off your legs. There are, of course, some pitfalls to dresses (strong Missouri winds and what I like to call “the Cheez-it effect” on my gams in particular), but, nevertheless, I still get pretty thrilled about finding dresses that I like.
This green ruffle dress has been with me for a few spring and summers now, but it’s one of my favorites. It’s really an easy-breezy shape of dress to wear and it makes a cute statement without trying too hard. And I don’t know about you, but when it gets to the middle of summer and you’re miserable and hot, “easy but cute” is on the top of my list.

I’ll be doing some scouting for more summer dresses in the next few weeks, and I would love to get some big bold prints in the collection soon. I may have to wait a bit until I see the right one, but I have confidence that someday my prints will come…
(sorry). (that pun was terrible). (thank you for not hating me). (you do hate me?). (i don’t blame you).
