Tommy Bahama - The Shift Dress
Hot Summer Sunshine
"If you love something, wear it all the time...Find things that suit you. That is how you look extraordinary." - Vivienne Westwood
On a recent sojourn to Scottsdale, Arizona, I was reminded of how one needs to wear something light, airy and not tight fitting. The Tommy Bahama shift is the ultimate answer. The chambray light blue is so comfortable and looks effortless with sandals. Especially with my Pikolinos sandals which are comfortable right out of the box. The shift reminds me of an East Coast Hamptons dress worn either casually or out to dinner. Add heels, simple stud earrings, lipstick and maybe a bracelet. You will be talk of the town.
Embrace the Wrinkle - The Noble Wrinkle
The shift also comes in linen and in many hues. I own both the chambray and have two linens versions in white and also in orange. I love them. They are all melded into a relax fit. If you are looking for a figure fitting affair, this is not your vibe. As for the linen version you must accept the wrinkle. In fact, the fashion industry, labels linen as The Noble Linen. It is breathable, organic and has a history that bodes back to the Egyptian era where linen was used as currency. Thus, embrace the wrinkle and know you are royally attired. Additionally, note that when purchasing any linen, always chose flowy, loose items rather than structured pieces such as a suit or jacket. Think summer and loose apparel.
When the sun is burning, the earth is glowing and the heat is bearing down, these shifts can be your answer. You will be cool, elegant and ever so Audreyesq. The simplicity is pure magic. After all, it is summertime. And, summer is about barbeques, beach attire, cocktail hour, laughter, chatting and overall relaxation. It is a grand moment that comes once a year.
Summer is officially here. Enjoy the shift dress. Enjoy the summer shenanigan's. Enjoy your friends and enjoy your life.
