Had to laugh at the difference between the store photo of the dress and me after 4 hours in the car . Oh to be so pressed, cool and together-looking It's super hot today, and humid ,which is the worst combo for feeling pull-together for a sales call. My hair also stops cooperating in this weather, but I'm trying to ignore it - ha. I was in and out of the car about 8 times today, hence the super-wrinkled dress.

This type of linen dress is my summer go-to, and I'm never sure if they are flattering, but they fit the bill for ease of wear and a reasonable fit. I'm always worried when Janet says things like " I can't wear shift or sack dresses" , because if they queen of dresses can't wear one, then what the heck am I going to do? But - the straight cut seems best on me when I am not at all interested in highlighting any part of my body. No clinging, no fussing and no pulling anywhere. I figure it's linen camouflage and I go with it. I also took anchie's gentle reminder/suggestion to get a bra fitting done and get some new "support" , as it were, and am sporting my new expensive and mildly alarming armour under this dress, which does provide a bit better of a silhouette

Wore with new sandals, which are super comfortable and were acomplete impulse purchase. Also using my new work tote, which I like , but is pretty heavy when I have my 12.9 inch iPad in there. I was hoping to take it on my upcoming week-long trip to Toronto, but I'm now not so sure. Also wearing my new favourite summer lipstick and fragrance.
