There’s something about the way I feel when I toss on a simple summer dress. It’s light material and relaxed structure makes me feel free and ready to embrace the summer heat.
A dainty pairing of a summer dress and sandals also makes me reminisce of the days when I was a child and my mother would put me in dresses that my grandmother made me. I would dance around in the yard as happy as can be.
One time my mother had gotten me dressed and left me to play. She was busy in the kitchen, taking her eye away from me for just a short moment. She then realized I was no longer in her sight and she was looking all over for me. Her last thought was to look outside, there I was in a dress my grandmother made me, playing in the long grass and dandelions. This is a picture that has remained on my parents fridge since the day it was printed.
I was born in a small town surrounded by nature and all things green. I truly count myself lucky to be able to have had these kinds of moments as a child. Now a days I have such an appreciation for all the little moments from my past and I will cherish them forever.
To this day… I still love to put on a simple summer dress and frolic outside… sometimes even playing with a dandelion or two.
