The Summer of the Dress





As the days become longer, and the sun shines warmer and brighter, my mind turns towards the impending Summer.

Each season has its own beauty, of course.

Autumn is aflame with the majestic reds and golds of falling leaves.
Winter is the romance of a misty haze and the sound of rain falling on roof tops while we snuggle cosily in our warm beds.
Frivolous Spring makes us giddy with delight, fragrant blossoms fill the air and the earth, once again, is reborn.

Then there is Summer.
Long, hot, beautiful Summer.

Summer is...

Frolicking at the beach!




Sweet delicious cherries and juicy watermelons.

Lazy siestas sleeping under a shady tree.

The chirping of crickets and cicadas, our lullaby for hot, Summer nights.

Icy poles and ice creams.
(Pistachio gelati for me).

Squirting the children with the garden hose as they squeal with delight, then running for my life as they chase me with buckets of water. (Of course, I let them catch me!).


Glorious sunsets.
Sultry cocktails.
Isn't it romantic?

Stillness.
Serenity.

And the dresses.
I love Summer dresses.
Summer dresses teamed with espadrilles.

I can't wait to unravel the heavy layers of Winter and pop into a frock.

I love the gentle feeling of a cooling breeze as it swirls about my bare legs, it's like my dress is dancing.

A summer dress makes me feel like Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor.

All woman.

Girly and twirly.


Fitted in all the right places.


My curves, long hidden, come out to play.


Summer has a rhythm that I just can't wait to dance to. 


Are you looking forward to Summer?

Hi from SITS! I live in Arizona and we have hot and less hot. I'm super excited for summer to be over instead, so I can go outside again. :) I'm sure if I lived in a less hot place I would enjoy summer more but I have to say I do enjoy my sun dresses! It's so neat to see how things are different in different parts of the world. Have a great summer!

I'm a northern, cool weather kind of gal, so when I think of summer I think of looking for shady patios and cold beverages! I love your post though and the references to Marilyn, Elizabeth and Sophia. You're heading into your favourite time of year... me too, autumn! Love your blog's name, by the way :)

My favourite season is most definitely spring, not too cool, not too hot, beautiful blooms, it's just gorgeous. But I am really looking forward to dress wearing weather, I get so caught up in the convenience of jeans in the cooler weather and I've just had enough of denim! Love a good frock. As for summer, I can't wait to watch my kids play under the sprinkler x
