Slow Southern Style

This is only my second outfit post from Georgia, but it is also my last. I spent more days in Georgia than I got photographs for, but I suppose that is what you call "living in the moment."
I have to admit that summer clothes are my absolute favorite. At heart, I think I am a minimalist who just wants to throw on a dress and a pair of shoes and go. This dress is one of my favorite dresses for summer (as you can tell by looking through the archives and seeing how often I've worn it in past years!); it is super lightweight and loose fitting, but the structure keeps it from being dowdy and the pattern sets it apart. Warm-weather clothing certainly makes packing easy: a few pretty dresses and a couple of simple, mixable shoes and you're through.

This is a great dress. I love the patterns and the color. I too love summer dressing. It is so much easier than worrying about so many layers in the cold weather.

You look so beautiful. I love your hair and the dress is perfect. It looks like one of those beautiful frocks that can either stand alone or be mixed and accessorized depending on the wearer's mood.

I really adore this harlequin dress, & have loved seeing it frequent your blog. The greens on it are so complementing to each other & your red hair, & the style of the dress is lovely.

I can't wait for the summer. I'm planning on learning how to sew this year. I want to make a lot of dresses and your little capelet inspired me to make a cape. I found a wonderful pattern - absoutely perfect! Now I need to find the perfect fabric print to go with it.

You always look so lovely! I've been ooh-ing and aah-ing for months, but I've finally bitten the bullet and posted an outfit on my blog. You've given me the confidence!

Annabel said...

Do you look that gorgeous on every single day? Hats off for that!

reckless daughter said...

Hope you had a great time in Georgia!

lovely dress

girlnextdoorfashion said...

I am totally the same about minimalism.
I wish I could just throw a dress on and look effortlessly put together. It works sometimes, but not always.
You look lovely as usual though :]]]

Eben though I'm the zillionth comment :-) I couldn't leave without saying your nails and rings are gorgeous ... and I like the dress too :-)

Danielle said...

I like your shoes. They seem like the perfect summer shoe!

Maeko said...

I love that flowered crown. It will make great props for your many wonderful photos spreads. I think you've become something of a mentor for me when it comes to accessorizing my head. I never do it.

Whenever I have free funds, it's always focused on the clothes as opposed to the accessories. As a result, I never have dynamic outfits as much as I could, because my accessory arsenal is much smaller than it should be.

I can't wait to see how you wear this!

Thanks!

PS. you should stop by thereafterish. some time. I have taken some photos you might enjoy. Since I know you love classical art and landscapes.

And then of course, I love the ivy and flowers in this post. You look like you belong in this garden. An organic evolution of beauty.
