The Fab Collab I’m doing this week with the beautiful ladies of JTouchofStyle.com is all about memories centered on an a summer icon: the sundress. There are four generations in this Fab Collab. Each of us has our own unique relationship to sundresses, so we’re all taking turns to tell our stories and show how we style them.
On Tuesday, Jodie posted a story about a dress from her mother made for her. My story was all about reclaiming casual dresses for my signature style. Today, I invite you to take a look at Nancy’s story. The story behind her dress carries memories of summers on the shores of Lake Michigan. She also shows how she styles a sundress today at 60-plus.
Below is an excerpt from her story. To read more, click here.
