Tart Dresses - Summer, Ice Cream and All That Jazz




Step into Summer



"What is important in a dress is the woman wearing it." - Yves Saint Laurent



The dog days of summer are upon the land with sweltering heat, sudden rain storms in drought stricken places and a myriad of weather concoctions playing havoc with the living.  It is surprisingly refreshing to notice fashionistas from all walks of life wearing a summer dress with flats or sandals. The weather is not deterring the mission of appearing feminine and pretty this summer.  Perhaps it is the media or maybe the time has come to dress up rather than run around looking disheveled.  Here are a few summer sundress favorites by Tart.  Many are on sale.

Tart Background:  I own several pieces from Tart and absolutely adore the shape, fabrics and hues for spring and summer.    Here is information on the brand from Tart Collections website.

For the first time, in my life, I will not be going in-store for the sale.  I am positive many like me will do the same. Ever since, I was in high school, the Nordstrom Anniversary Salehas been an exciting event for me.  Grab a coffee, meet a friend and purchase clothes. We usually see other friends and spread the word on what is hot.  No doubt, the year 2020 will be one for the history books.  
If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible.  As we all know, when the virus appeared, every…

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Three - Jeans & Tops

The Perfect Combination


Since we no longer are attending events that we enjoyed in 2019, our needs for formal wear is not a priority this year.  However, I do believe in dressing up daily with a flattering top or a bit of color for a lift of hope and cheer.  What I have found refreshing as of late, is the ability to visit restaurants and eat outdoors.  Everyone seems upbeat, happy and joyous to be participating in the simpler thrills of life.  The women have taken time to look lovely and are sporting pretty clothes.  After all, our beautiful pieces are just waiting to be worn.  
Additionally, the new norm for most is working from the home, which is a significant change for everyone. Thus, a great pair of jeans and a beautiful top will look and make you feel professional.  It is important to dress for success even if you are in your office or at the kitchen table.  Fix your hair, put on your makeup, and add accessories.  Why not look your best?  You are a powerful woman.  Anyone in busin…
