I’m sure I’m not alone in my feeling of disbelief that August is already upon us. Doesn’t it feel like we were just celebrating Memorial Day? Knowing that summer is slowly coming to a close has me wanting to soak up every last bit of the season. I want to do all the summer things: dinners al fresco, lazy days by the pool, and post-dinner snow cones, to name just a few. Also on that list of favorites? Travel. Lots of it. Over the next month, I’ll be all over the map – starting with next week’s trip to Aspen, followed by New York and then Montana, and ending with a post-Labor Day trip to Nantucket.
This means I have plenty of packing (and re-packing) in my future. One thing I’ll probably be taking to all four places is this sunny yellow dress. It’s my newest addition from Banjanan. I always manage to find the best warm-weather things from this line. Banjanan’s designer Caroline Weller has totally mastered the art of easy-breezy – especially when it comes to dresses. In addition to my yellow one, I also added this one and this one to my closet. They’re all simple enough to wear during the day but, with a quick accessory switch, work as nighttime favorite, too. In a nutshell? My idea of the perfect vacation dresses.
