Yesterday, we hosted a fantastic party for the July 4th holiday. It lasted all day, plenty of food and booze were consumed and a good time was had by all. However, by the middle of the day, I sat at my kitchen table and looked around all the lovely ladies in my house. They were all wearing shorts and easy, breezy babydoll tops. I didn’t feel overdressed in my basic skirt and eyelet blouse, just too fussy or twee as one of the readers put it. (I love that word and hadn’t heard it before) For those who don’t know, I live near Washingon DC, where we are currently experiencing a heat wave. This means my fingerwave and curls started to fall within minutes of my taking out my wave clips, my make-up began it’s crawl down my face shortly after that. Sometimes I wonder if it’s really worth the effort.
