A Simple Shift

I can’t wear a shift dress without thinking about larger life questions, because, after all, life is constantly shifting. My own life has seen many shifts, most typical, some not. I’ve shifted from childhood to adulthood. (This shift made kicking and screaming and only just recently would I say that I’ve truly matured, though the number of years in my life might suggest otherwise.) I’ve shifted from a free-wheeling, Sex and the City-loving single girl to a somewhat less free-wheeling, Sex and the City-loving married woman. Becoming a mom was without question my greatest life shift. That one left a (few) mark(s), and is my greatest blessing. It hasn’t all been easy, in fact much of it has been bloody hard, but through it all I’ve kept a through line or two, my love of easy breezy dressing among them. Enter the shift dress. This one is from fellow mama and all around superstar Corey Lynn Calter. It has just the right summer-ready combination of sparkle and ease and I feel, when I wear it, a heady sense of possibility. What will life bring next? No doubt a shift in the right direction.

With love,

Amanda
