Today, I decided to wear a summery dress, since it's rather warm and sticky outside. Not that I will go out much...

This is a great new dress from Boden--unfortunately this colorway mostly sold out (the available colorway is pretty too). I anticipated that and ordered, and it eventually arrived. I still like a girly dress like this for summer, even if my style has gone mostly in a different direction. The nice thing about a dress is that you don't have to worry too much about it going with other items.

(My favorite dress of all time is this other one from Boden, with the fun Riviera print. it still fits but is sadly slightly shorter than I want it to be now; my eye has adjusted to knee covering lengths more. I am keeping this for my hall of fame but may search ebay etc for the next size up, in the hopes that it would add enough length.)

I've included a few other looks from recent times, but I've been less diligent about photos. I did get the hoodie Angie recommended (correct as usual).

The last photo is an experiment - I am not sure I should keep this asymmetrical peplum top now that I favor skinny jeans less, so I tried it with wide jeans to see. I felt comfortable and left it on (because who cares right now?) but I'm sort of ambivalent about the top. It's also a poly blend, which I wouldn't buy anymore in a short sleeved top. What say you all?

In other news, we are settling into work here at home all summer. In my case it may even be indefinite. We may end up on a road trip later in the summer to a family summer home where we would keep to ourselves, but that will be done only with careful consideration. Things in NYC are improving but I know a second wave will come.

ETA - I didn't mean to add a poll!
