Dresses this month! If you’re not a dress wearer, I encourage you to reconsider; check out these… things, to wear under dresses. Your thighs will be SO much happier… They revolutionized my relationship with dresses!

This bracelet has some colors in it that don’t appear in the wardrobe palette, but when worn with such a simple dress, it brings some interesting accents. And I just thought that it was too beautiful to pass up.
This was the most “out there” dress included; the colors are on the most summery edge of our palette. But since it will be worn either on its own or with a cardigan, it didn’t have to be the same shade of mossy green as (for example) the winter trousers. Once the dress is shown with the rest of the clothing from this grouping, it becomes clear that it’s a nice option.
And I have to give these L.L.Bean tote bags a shout – Belovedest and I use them as laundry baskets, because they’re much easier to carry, and they’re easy to wash when they need to be freshened up. (they’re available both open-top and zippered) They are TOUGH as heck – I can’t envision every wearing them out.
I tried to find fluid jewelry, again. Once all of the jewelry is together on a page, the harmony among the pieces becomes more apparent:
