There is something comforting about a t-shirt dress. It reminds me of meeting an old friend. You start talking, pick up right where you left off and automatically feel relaxed. This dress is exactly that. Something you can slip on quickly and turn into the perfect outfit in no time. All the while staying true to yourself and your style.
This t-shirt dress is a classic and will never go out of style. Throw it on over a bathing suit for a day at the beach. Or, add some gladiator sandals, a fun necklace and cute tote to dress it up for lunch with a friend. I tied my chambray shirt around my waist to give a little definition and as an extra layer in case the weather cooled. However, it ended up being a super sunny day and hot, so I was thankful to have my straw hat and sunnies! Also, the dress is one hundred percent cotton, so it kept me nice and cool as I walked around and explored the ranch.
The Malibu Cafe at Calamigos Ranch
One of the many perks of being a teacher is having summers off. As a result, I have time to meet friends in the middle of the day. Whenever I have a school break, my friend Tara and I like to meet for lunch. Last week, we met at The Malibu Cafe at Calamigos Ranch. Everything about this place is amazing. Not only is the food and drink wonderful, but also the grounds. Every corner has a hidden gem. In the eating area, a giant chess set, ping pong tables, and many more games serve to keep everyone entertained. The dining furniture is eclectic and each area has a unique theme. A small pond borders the edge of the cafe, where you can paddle around in small boats. Consequently, this place is awe-inspiring.
Since Tara and I have visited numerous times, we thought we had seen everything. We were about to head home, when we were pleasantly surprised to discover there was an entire area we had never seen before. Pink and purple hydrangeas, fully in bloom, lined the outer edge of an area for a wedding ceremony. Twinkle lights hung from a giant tree and the sound of lapping water from a man-made waterfall put us completely at ease.
As we said our good-byes, I was filled with a sense of comfort. It was a lovely day and I was grateful to be able to enjoy the company of a good friend, in the most agreeable dress.
