I learned today that dark jeans in summer are never a good choice. I don’t know why it took me so long to realize this, but as I sat in my car driving home hot and sad, it hit me. If I buy more dresses, the less I will have to suffer through this new climate to which I am unaccustomed! So here is my new routine: sundresses and sandals. Bright colors, blacks, floral prints, and yellows are must-haves this season. Here are some I’ve found at Nordstrom’s BP department. I don’t always look hard in there, but this time I found a ton of stuff there, especially the Mimi Chica dresses. The Mimi Chica Ruffle Dress comes in just about every color you could ever imagine and also floral patterns. The best thing about this dress is that it can be dressed up or down. The funniest part about this is that I bought a black one and a blue one, and when my lifelong friend Katie came to visit, she picked me up wearing the floral version! She also has the black one. It is the type of dress that looks good on all kinds of bodies. Its neckline is a slight V-shape with loose ruffles, the straps adjust the skirt is loose and flowy, and the waist is fitted with elastic so it doesn’t look like a potato sack. They are adorable and perfect to beat the heat, right? Another Mimi Chica dress I like has a square neckline. The ruffles are bigger but not overdone and there is still elastic at the waist, another great summer find!
