blissful inspiration

good morning!  it's me, mrs. french....it is hot and humid in Portland.  Honestly days like these the only thing I want to wear is cool cotton dresses.  Yesterday I stopped by my favorite Portland dress shop and tried on that very thing...which is where the blissful inspiration for today came from....
psst...tap the stars...











typically what happens when I put this post together a crazy surge of inspiration comes over me, which is exactly what happened here...

I have a funny feeling there will be many cotton dress shots in my future...

I hope you enjoyed our time together today...I am looking forward to next week...I would love to see you at bliss too....

happy thursday, mrs. french

The dresses are lovely! My mom always wore dresses, but I particularly remember the cool, cotton dresses she wore in the summertime when I was a little girl (in the 70s).

I love the first photograph. The dresses remind me of my grandmother. Your photos are just lovely and the dresses hanging in the window are especially charming.

I'm so jealous!! It's cold and dreary here in the Bay Area. :( Summer, where are you?! I'll have to check out that boutique the next time I'm in Portland. It looks lovely. :)
