Frock Fridays

Okay, I admit it - I'm going to take the easy road for today's Frock Fridays.  I don't feel too bad about it because you've definitely got your weekly dose of style from me already this week (have you entered the Shabby Apple giftcard giveaway yet, by the way?) and because, actually, what I'm posting is pretty indicative of my sartorial leanings in the summer.

Yup, I'm talking about jersey.  Whether you're getting dressed to go to work and the mercury's already pushing 80 or you just want to collapse on the porch with a glass of iced tea at the end of a long day, whether you're throwing on a coverup over your bathing suit at the beach or pulling out a cute frock for that rooftop party - jersey is the way to go.

You know where I get my favorite jersey dresses?  Mom catalogues.  You know, the ones that have appeared in the mail pile every month since you were a kid - Lands' End, LLBean, Garnet Hill, Boden...  Their dresses are unbelievably comfy and universally flattering and always well-made - what's not to like?

I've got a busy weekend ahead, and I know I'll be reaching into my closet for some jersey.  How about you?


  1. Haha, I love "mom" catalogues, too!:) Jersey is one of the most forgiving fabrics, in my opinion, and definitely a summer staple for me!:)

  2. Haha there is no shame in shopping the mom catalogues.
