Summer Dresses, Summer Days

I've been living in shorts and skirts this summer and tend to forget about the ease of one-piece dressing until a few days into the annual heat wave. The annual heat wave arrived last week and towards the end of it, I remembered to pull out my dresses.

I prefer a summer dress with simple lines like the one I'm wearing above. It's one of the '09 embossed styles from J.Crew. I'm also using the Kaleidoscope paisley San Isidro bag with both dresses. 

The Knotted Cotton Sateen dress was another favorite from last summer. The neckline bow is the detail that makes this otherwise simple dress.
