Happy Monday, gals! Can you believe August is just days away? What??? How did that happen? But the great thing about this time of the year is that so many of our favorite summer finds go on sale. So if you’ve had your eye on something special, watching for the price to drop, it may be time to go for it. And if you like my personal “dress of the summer,” you’re in luck! The price has fallen dramatically on this sweet thing.
I’m calling this poplin shift dress the Dress of the Summer, but truthfully I’ve only worn it once. But that one time was a special day. I wore this navy polka dot dress to church when James first preached for our new congregation in Ohio.
This simple 100% cotton dress is lightweight, but fully lined, also with a 100% cotton lining. It features a button front closure, functional side seam pockets and a feminine fit and flare silhouette, accentuated by a removable tie belt.
I’m wearing an 8, so it fits true to size.
I kept my jewelry simple so the dress could be the star. I wore my white beaded drop earrings. They are now sold out, but these beaded hoops are a pretty option. Then I added my white enamel bangle and the classic gold bangle.
My nude patent leather ankle strap sandals have fast become my summer go-to heels. These shoes have been marked waaaay down, and they will definitely be stylish for several years to come. You’ll find them in a large assortment of sizes, and they fit true to size. I find them very comfortable and easy to walk in.
I’m sure I’ll be enjoying this classic shift dress for years. Now that we’re at a church where people dress up a little more I’ll find more occasions to wear it. But it would also be appropriate for a daytime wedding, bridal shower, ladies brunch or other fun event.
I found a few more lovely dresses that have been marked down significantly at Talbots, too. And when I loaded the shopping widget, all of them were pretty well stocked. Let me know if you pick one out! Maybe it will become your Dress of the Summer.

This time of year we see a lot of rainbows in Arizona. With many monsoon rains, we are treated to spectacular sights as the moisture dissipates and the rays of sunlight cast prisms of color through them.
But those rainbows are more than pretty show-stopping closures to rain showers. They are biblical reminders of God’s faithfulness to keep His promises. Rainbows also remind us that God deeply loves His creation and has gone to great lengths to redeem it from the ravages of sin and death. One day every promise He has ever made to us will be fulfilled and we will be united with Him face to face.
When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.” ~ Genesis 9:16-17
