Flippy dresses

Today is going to be another torturous hot day. So hot that even I, who rarely wear anything other than jeans (although they are nice jeans) am wearing one of those flippy cool sun dresses so commonly seen during these dog days of summer.

I originally drew the little cartoon above after a wedding shower. I was so impressed by all the pastel dresses, strappy high heels, and perfectly arranged coifs that as soon as I returned home, I had to get as much as I could remember into my journal. What a lovely painting it could make.

But today it seems like a perfect illustration of a summer day, sipping iced drinks, gossiping with your friends, and looking beautiful.
