  1. What's your favourite summer item of clothing? Old or new. I've just replaced my white jeans, which always make me feel summery. Had given away my old ones. Also needing some medium heel summer shoes, preferably with toes in.

  1. An aqua and pink madras plaid cotton sundress. Went everywhere!

  2. A flowy white skirt! I had a mermaid-cut skirt that I wore for years; the skirt I have now is an A-line that hits just below the knees. Not quite warm enough here yet to wear skirts without tights, though, so my full summer wardrobe hasn't come out yet.

  3. I had put my "summer wardrobe" into vacuum-pack bags last year. First time ever. They look very squashed now, obviously.

  4. A bright colored dress!

  5. Yes, a bright dress! How bright and how patterned shall we go?

  6. How bright? Very bright!


  7. Ooh, I love those! Bright patterned dresses (and skirts) are high up on my list, too. My most recent purchase is a midi skirt in marigold yellow with a pattern of black leaves. So far I've worn it with an aqua blue dressy tee. Looking forward to trying it with a white blouse, a chambray top, and...?

  8. Great question! My favorite summer item is a pull on (elastic waist) floral print skirt. It's nice (and cool feeling) to wear a skirt instead of capris or shorts all the time. I think I might need to look for another one since I've had this one for several seasons.

  9. Here is a skirt from Loft I'm considering. What do you think?

  10. It is from


  11. Oh, so pretty! Retro print, modern cut...I'd say go for it.

  12. Yes, go for the Loft skirt. Retro-ish as wonderer says, reminds me of the film "Carousel" but not so bouffant as in those days. Loving all the bright summer dresses and skirts from cwbert and wonderer. I haven't a flowery dress at the moment. I have some maxis, hardly worn except in heatwaves (one moss green with pattern, one orange crinkly cheesecloth casual type, one plain black. None of them suitable for me to wear without some sort of sleeves. I've just dyed two bloused bright red in the washing machine and they look very cheery. May sew myself a flowery dress? Hmmmmmm?

  13. Dyed two blouses, not two bloused. (!)

  14. I've just had a look at the costumes in "Carousel". They weren't as I imagined. But they had sleeves. Yippee!
