All White, All White, All White & First Friendship Friday Link-up

Sorry, I couldn’t resist – Matthew McConaughey was filming in Cleveland recently.  But seriously, who doesn’t love all white in the summertime! It’s so clean…so fresh…so South of France, expensive looking.

On a recent trip to Mexico my friend and I stopped at the Blanc du Nil shop with it’s beautifully displayed, all white clothing.  My friend immediately found several pieces that looked fantastic on her!  In a moment of FOMO, I tried on and ended up buying the dress pictured below.

Wearing it to dinner while still on vacation, I quickly realized it was a mistake purchase.  The woven cotton fabric in this body skimming sheath shape shows every wrinkle!  And unlike a loose dress of cotton or linen, it doesn’t look like it’s meant to be creased.  You really can’t do much in it but stand.  So, my hunt for a white dress that’s more lifestyle-friendly continues.

OOTD: Summer Solstice Edition

Cleveland is a city that really comes alive in the summertime! It offers fabulous weekly festivals like Edgewater Live and Wade Oval Wednesdays where live music, food trucks and a general good time turn up in abundance.  On Wednesday I decided to check out the Summer Solstice Celebration at Lakewood Park – known for the somewhat newly (2015) constructed Solstice Steps where local residents gather each night to watch the sun set over Lake Erie.

While I rarely wear shorts anymore, I decided to this night.  Hey, if you can’t wear shorts in Cleveland on the longest day of the year, when can you?  This pair (and the top) are older items in my wardrobe but the shorts reminded me a bit of a current pair from Sandro.  The pink and black combo takes me back to my 1980’s teen years!
