Let me pause with the fall inspo for a sec to say — it is HOT in these parts and though I am buying like it’s mid-November, I am living in peak summer. I have been living in this Maxwell and Geraldine dress (seen above) that was generously sent to me a few weeks ago. (I’m wearing it with this engraved heart necklace that so many of you also now own — I can’t believe it’s under $40!) It’s a gorgeously lightweight material, and I love the loose skirt that barely skims the body. So easy to wear in heat! A few other dresses in a similar vein that can really withstand high heat and humidity:
EMERSON FRY CUTIE — CURRENTLY IN MY CART
SHIRTING STRIPE — THIS CUT IS GREAT FOR MAXIMUM AIR FLOW
THIS MIRTH STYLE — 30% OFF TODAY ONLY (DISCOUNT APPEARS IN CART AUTOMATICALLY)
I OWN THIS IN YELLOW (ALSO LOVE IN THE LIGHT GREEN) AND FIND IT’S THE SIMPLEST THING TO THROW ON WHEN RUNNING AROUND BEHIND MY CHILDREN IN THE SPRINKLER — INEXPENSIVE, UNFUSSY, LIGHTWEIGHT, FUN! — BUT MUST ADD THAT THE LAST FEW TIMES I’VE WORN THIS, I’VE GOTTEN A TON OF COMPLIMENTS?! I THINK YELLOW IS AN UNDERREPRESENTED COLOR
SWEETEST BLUE AND WHITE PATTERNED SMOCKED DRESS FOR ONLY $20
HILL HOUSE ELLIE DRESS — OF COURSE!
WEAR THIS $34 DRESS ABOUT ONCE A WEEK AND NOW SO DOES MY MOTHER
*By the way, Everlane is currently running a sale and my favorite box cut tee is only $13 in a chic-for-fall taupe, and I am stocking up on these basic tees while they are only $10. (I mentioned last week that Everlane is one of my favorite sources for layering basics/tees.) I also absolutely live in this fleece in the winter (I have it in oat, but the pale sage turned my head) and it is somehow only $22?!
**Also: thanks to the Magpie who alerted me to Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty promotion, where they mark down select beauty products for 24 hours for 21 days in a row. Tomorrow, 9/1, my favorite face mask from Origins will be 50% off! I wrote all about it here! And on September 10, this fabulous facial cleanser from Indie Lee will also be 50% off. I love this gentle cleanser — I always travel with it. You can see the entire schedule of promotions here.
