One thing about me: I’m a sucker for a good sundress. It could be adorned with puffy sleeves, smocked or embroidered; mini-length or ankle-grazing; simple or brightly printed—for as many summers as I can remember, I’ve had a never-ending rotation of sundresses in my closet. Of course, the types of sundresses I’ve worn have varied as I’ve explored different aesthetics and lived in different parts of the country from L.A. to NYC, but no matter what else my summer wardrobe looks like, it will always have a few key staples not least of which is the perennial sundress along with sandals, swimsuits, and sunglasses.
