Who What Wear Bardot Dress


Hello and I hope your Easter was as lovely as mine.

I lifted my shopping ban (3 months!) and purchased this dress. I wanted to share it with you because, 100% cotton, pockets and $35 is worth sharing.  It's from the Who What Wear Target Collection and it's pretty fabulous. These days it's hard to find cotton dresses with pockets at this price point.  I like it because you can wear it on or off the shoulders and belted or not.  Our summers are brutal here and this is the perfect answer to those days you need to look somewhat pulled together under blistering heat conditions.





It reminds me of this Mark D. Sikes dress.  His is $745 and does not include the belt. That will run you another $150.

That's all I have for now. x

laundry notes





Whenever we have a change of seasons I go through my wardrobe and reorganize.  What is occurring to me this season is just how much I love my clothing.  I'm starting to realize that I better treat all my clothes as if they were heirlooms because finding things I love is getting harder and harder.

There are so many things to consider when purchasing new clothes. On the top of my list is natural fabrics and they are getting harder to find.  Even high end clothing is now synthetic although I have found a pretty cotton dress that I will share with you later this week!

So even my simplest tee shirts are now going to get the royal treatment.  And what exactly is the royal treatment?

1.  Hand wash everything I can, especially if it's something I know is hard to replace and quite frankly that is just about everything.

2.  Line dry everything.

3.  Use quality detergent.

4.  Air out clothes/sweaters between use instead of mindlessly throwing them into the wash.

5.  Mending things quickly instead of letting them fall into greater disrepair.

6.  Treat everything as if it's irreplaceable.

Note - I'm still using Dr. Bronners in the laundry but I still have my Laundress products that I use too.  The Stain Bar is amazing and I use the Wool and Cashmere Shampoo for all my vintage sweaters. All products are in the links.
