Is there anything better than a light flirty dress? I love dresses. I think it is because my Mom made play dresses for me as a kid, so running around on a farm I wore simple homemade dresses.
Today, however I ran errands looking like a before picture from an extreme makeover show. I’ve been sick for about two weeks with a bad cold (cough cough) that has kept me up at night (under eye baggage).I am a bit overworked and it is showing on my face. I chose to wear my yoga pants that ended up having paint stains on the rear end (Note to self buy a full length mirror) and was sporting a hair-do of overgrown bangs and hair tangled up in a messy bun.
I texted my husband, and my sweet man said I need a girlie day (translation= happy hour, shopping, massage, beach day), but because my next few days are busy I made a detour to the beauty store to get a yummy conditioner (side note: the store was playing Christmas music) a small pick-me up and I am super excited to shower tonight.
Instead of sporting my hot mess look I would rather be wearing this summery wardrobe.

The other night over dinner conversation at Ali’s the topic of survival on a deserted island came up and of course brilliant answer like a yacht, magic genie, a Brita, and duct tape were some of the answers. However, it had me thinking of what I would wear on that island. Maybe, because I am anticipating a trip to Hawaii to visit my girlfriend or just getting anxious for 75 degree weather here at home. I combed the web for island essentials like a simple, comfy jersey shirt dress, a great hat, fun tote bag and bright-colored flats.
My picks were all classics with revisions to details and colors. I am more of a Mary Anne than a Ginger when it comes to island wear, I want to shimmy up a tree to gather coconuts and dive for lobsters. Oh and my tote bag would be filled to the rim with essentials such as the magic genie, duct tape, and a good book.
