Ideal Summer Dress
My ideal summer would be spent wearing this dress, frolicking in the hills of Tuscany with Emma Thompson and Denzel Washington a la Kenneth Branagh's Much Ado About Nothing. I usually end up in fairly uninspired halters and shorts, but in that outfit you can't sit in the shade of a Cyprus tree and have grape juice dribble down your chin whilst saying things like "Sigh no more, ladies/ Sigh no more..." It's not possible- I've tried. Now in this dress, scavenged from a tent at the Inman Park festival a few weeks ago, you can say just about anything you want to and no one will care. Now, that's my kind of summer uniform! Hmmm... if only I could convince my boyfriend how dashing he would look in navy blue leather pants (see Denzel in bottom photo).
