As I grow older + as I try to figure out my style...I notice the things that I am drawn to decade after decade. These dresses prompt memories of long rides home from the mall, as a teenager, with a new Laura Ashley catalog to pour over again + again. These shapes also have me remembering the many Built by Wendy dresses I made + wore almost exclusively for many summers.
These are the short lived weeks when bare legs + longer sleeves just make sense. I'm considering whether I might wear one of these dresses with straight jeans, a waist length cardigan + boots when the weather cools. The blouses would be dreamy to wear with cut-off shorts, jeans or overalls. The same sweater would warm them up as well. Doen, you are just one more reason I wish the weather could be like this every day.
