The Elusive Day Dress

Hi, guys! I'm writing this while snacking on my fifth or sixth bowl of Angie's popcorn (sweet & salty all the way), so if you have any secrets for slowing the addiction, send 'em over! Anyway, happy Friday!! We kicked off holiday at Evereve yesterday which is typical for retail, but also kinda crazy (and starting my weekend off on an anxious note because I only have a few days to pop out three campaign concepts). Sitting at my desk, I can hear a lawn mower and see people passing by on bikes, so getting myself to think faux fur and gift guides is challenging. Hopefully I'll have some lightbulb moments over the weekend while, ironically, basking in all things summer.

When you can't turn work off (like me), an effortless dress takes at least a little of the stress away. Slip one on and you're out the door—instant outfit, zero brain cells required. The best thing about the Ann Taylor Ruffle Shift is that it pulls double duty. Clean and classic, it's easily dressed up or down with different shoes—I can wear it to work with flat mules, to a brewery with Supergas, or to a bridal shower with espadrilles. There's a bit of structure in the elevated-feeling fabric, the ruffle sleeves have just the right amount of flare and there's a cute keyhole detail in the back. It's going to be 90 degrees today and tomorrow so I'll definitely be wanting an outfit with some airflow. Have a good weekend!
