It’s summer in Texas, and I’ve been living in airy maxi dresses to try and beat the heat. This past 4th of July weekend we hosted our first get-together at The Morrison Bungalow! Our friends helped us warm our home 🙂
We knew we wanted our guests to gather outside and relax under the stars once the sun went down. We were lucky enough to get a nice breeze throughout the night, and it kept everyone there until the wee hours of the morning. The outfit I chose for the party was one that I could be cool and comfortable in, as I knew I would be moving around inside and outside, enjoying my role as co-host and chatting with all who were there to spend some special time with us.
I went with an extra-soft Gentle Fawn maxi dress, Sam Edelman platform sandals, and my Dolce & Gabbana sunnies before sundown. I have been in a minimalist jewelry phase these days…my wedding rings and stud earrings are pretty much all I’ve been wearing. In this heat I don’t want to feel weighed down by my clunkier pieces.
