Two years ago, I declared it "The Summer of Dresses." It was a great decision! Let me tell you why:
5. It is HOT in Richmond in the summer, and most sweaty mornings, pants are simply out of the question. Shorts aren't always right for the occasion. Dresses are always appropriate, and they let a little breeze in from time to time!
4. At the time, I was a mother of two preschoolers, so in the mornings, I had time to EITHER put on deodorant OR choose outfits that matched. Given the aforementioned heat and sweat, deodorant won. Dresses take less effort than Garanimals!
3. I was complimented on my outfits almost every day. Trust me when I tell you that I didn't get all dolled up in heels and full makeup every day (again, heat/sweat). Just the fact that I had on a dress, instead of cut-offs, instantly took my style a notch or two above the other moms at the children's museum, and people noticed.
2. We ate a lot of corn dog nuggets at the pool snack bar that summer. My dresses kept my secret and stayed with me through thick and thicker.
