The scene: A mountain or north woods vacation where it's warm during the day and cool at night
This orange dress was made with some of the salwar kameez fabric I brought back from India…we'll have to plan another trip,I'm using my Indian fabric up fast!I used Style 1012 which,显然，is discontinued.In case any of you have this pattern in your stash,它很合身，很容易做。
I made the trim for the neckline with the border of the fabric.我只是把它拉长，然后用熨斗把它压模，让它紧贴曲线。I lined this dress with the piece of fabric that comes with a kameez bundle that is meant for the pants (I think).我因为没有给自己的橙色亚麻布衣服做衬里而自责。It's so simple to do and really makes a dress hang better and you don't have to worry 必威官网betwayabout show through.
If it ever gets warm in Chicago (it's 64 degrees here now) this will make a great sundress for a barbeque or casual dinner out.
If I were challenged to wear white pants every day of the summer I could definitely do it!White pants can fit almost any occasion…here is my ultimate white pant collection:
White silk trousers–these are perfect for any time you want to get dressed up a little or a lot and they're great for early in the summer when you're not ready to bare your legs.(more…)
The event: A summer day at the office and you want to look pulled together
The outfit: A simple,优雅的夏装（on sale at Neiman Marcus.com),a sweater (Ann Taylor.com) to throw over your shoulders when indoors,一些严重的泵（Ferragamo at Nordstrom.com) and chunky jewelry (Nordstrom.com) to add a little edge.
The scene: A busy summer Saturday afternoon–could be errands,跳蚤市场或农贸市场
The outfit: Just an easy pair of shorts and t-shirt (Ann Taylor.com),但由于中性的托盘和漂亮的配件，看起来很漂亮（布鲁明代尔的拉尔夫·劳伦凉鞋,,Nordstrom.com的拉尔夫-劳伦带,,hobo bag Michael Kors at Bloomindales.com,,Juicy Couture earrings at Nordstrom.com）
Hint: These short are for those with good legs;短裤或卡其色裙子越长越好。Make sure the fit of this outfit is generous,it's an easy look–no tight clothing.
