putting away the jeans for a moment

Photographer: Vanessa Jackman

In honour of the heat, I've giving my jeans a rest and finally giving my much neglected dresses their day in the sun. I'm taking advantage of my casual office rules to wear my Keds and driving shoes with simple, short shifts.

If I weren't recovering from a hideous broken toe nail from running, I would wear flat sandals too.

It's been a while and I've forgotten the charms of wearing a dress and feeling the hems kick in a flirty way.

such lovely summer picks! I really like the combination of olive with white shoes that you see in the first picture. I'm still on a dress ban, but I can't imagine anything simpler than wearing a dress in hot and humid weather.

Domi: Thanks! I will try, but sometimes work is just too much. I love that last look too, so easy and chic, and I would love to have those sandals.

Elena: Yes, she looks lovely in that shot.

Lindsay K: I had no idea what her name was until you mentioned it. It was only putting this post together that made wonder if the same girl was in the two photos. I agree she looks comfy and chic - which I always aspire to!

S: I've been forcing myself to not buy dresses too - so far so good. I'm just enjoying my existing ones which are so unworn that they feel new anyway...
