Beige is not boring, despite reviews to the contrary. In fact, we’re changing the name of this maligned color to cafe-au-lait. It just needs a little love and a couple of accessories, and beige – and all its variants – is a cool choice for southern summer.

I found this long cool number at Housing Works Thrift in the West Village. It’s a good-quality cotton knit by Everlane, an “ethically sourced” clothing company. It’s brand new, and it was marked down to $10. Yes, please. I love a long, easy dress with no fussing needed.
I added a black tank underneath, as the armholes are cut reeaalllly deep, and who wants to see my summer bra? The rose-tone pendant is new, and retail(!) from Nordie’s. It was purchased with a gift card from the airline that left me cold and lonely in Vancouver (read about the merry airport mixups here).
