Dress: Shop in Canada
Cardi: Smart Set
Necklace: Santa Fe street vendor
Bracelets: Various places
The dress is sleeveless, low-cut, and short, so I wore it with a coral cardigan and casual sandals. I didn’t need to vamp it up. I added a bunch of inexpensive stretchy bracelets for an impromptu arm party. These are from places like Claire’s, and shops around town. If it fit with the color scheme, it went on my arm.
I might try this with a blazer too.
Do you hang onto clothes or is your closet lean and mean? According to many people, “if you haven’t worn it for a year, toss it.” But I really like this dress; I just don’t always get to things in my closet. I tend to prefer collecting clothes, and I keep them as long as they’re in good shape, fit well, and suit me.
Oh, don’t forget to check out the other Visible Monday posts. I added this to Not Dead Yet’s linkup.

Yay for summer in September! And you keep rockin’ the sundresses until it drops into the 50s!!! Love this one, Jean. The seafoam is divine with your skintone and the red cardi was a great way to make it seem just a little autumnal. ~Sarah
I agree! I’m not giving up summer wear yet. The season starts so late here. I don’t want a wimpy two-month summer. You’re right: the cardi brings a bit of fall into the look 🙂
A beautiful dress, I love it. The print is wonderful. Have the style of your mother, a very elegant woman.
Thank you. A lot of people say my mom and I are similar in looks and style.
Yes, you and your mother are both very elegant, chic.
I heartily agree that one keeps clothes that have not been worn for a year.Clothes can be sent to thrift shops when you decide you will not wear them again.If not fit for thrift shops, out of the cold centres may be glad of them…final destination is the rag bag.
It’s true: that’s the life of a garment. I try to find good homes for my castoffs but eventually they will end up in the rag bag. Useful too, I suppose.
