summer dressing

It's starting to get sticky out there - and although shorts and tees are my typical weekend wardrobe, there's so much to be said for a little cotton dress.  For dates-nights or market mornings, or to toss over your bikini on the way back from the beach, stay chic and cool this summer in these breezy fuss-free frocks.
