I am a neutrals-loving woman. My closet is full of navy, black, and ivory, and I like it that way. But I could get in the practice of wearing color, especially for summer. And especially if it’s in the form of an easy, versatile sundress.
I showed the Alice dress by kika to you last week, and here’s the delightful Charissa. It’s the ultimate summer dress, with a box-pleated skirt and just the right amount of coverage up-top. The color’s called “Peacock,” a saturated azure blue. So I painted my toes sapphire, just to be bluesy.
The dress is courtesy of kika, a woman-owned and environmentally aware company. Made in the USA, too, yay for the home team.

I’m adding more color with a sheer butterfly scarf, courtesy of Scarf World. They have hundreds of offerings, in silk, chiffon and poly, and the prices are sweet. This style is large enough to serve as a wrap or a swim-bottom cover-up.
