I’m so so excited for the chat today. There has been a FLOOD of questions and they are all so, so good. I hope everyone likes our thoughts and advice! I’m in full chat mode today so I thought I’d leave you with some fun eye candy before the chat at 3.

I’ve had jersey dresses on the brain recently because I’ve decided that they, along with cheerful flats and little jackets, will be my uniform this summer. Summer in Washington is no time for anything complicated, fussy or uncomfortable, and jersey is a great option.

The fabric is pure breathable comfort, and so many retailers offer them in great colors and for good prices. Velvet carries a nice array, but the other day I found myself wanting ever.single.one of the offerings on – yes, really – victoriassecret.com. You could wear a bra easily under this one, which has a nice waist, this is a nice tall glass of green for a maxi style, and this one is office-perfect. And fun colors! Taking the dress to the utmost versatile level is this Rory Beca dress, an innovative take on the wear-it-many-ways dress….with no confusing tying!

The girl above is totally rocking the uniform: simple flat sandals, easy hair, and a comfy, pretty jersey dress in a great color.

Pastels and Madras and Whales, Oh My!

Here’s one for the smart-move file: preptastic clothing company Vineyard Vines has moved into the old Wet Seal in Georgetown, still Washington’s premier destination for the embroidered-whale set. The owners were on hand at an opening party last night and the Smith Point crew showed up in their Gold-Cup best (including hats!). The Bachelor Andy Baldwin was there munching on sushi and cupcakes and getting eyed by the women in the room, while guys and girls (mostly the guys, natch) rocked whale foam hats.

The only misstep? A mother-and-daughter pair who came to exchange an item they’d purchased earlier in the day and were not allowed in. “It’s for her graduation though, we can’t come back tomorrow.” Sorry, ya can’t come in. “We won’t eat or drink anything!” No dice.

The good life I guess, but only for those invited!
