I’ve been talking breathlessly to friends about the quiet beach getaway that I am planning (and the cute beach dresses that I’ll finally get to wear) since this spring, just after I made my first vaccine appointment, but for various reasons the trip simply hasn’t materialized. And playing dress-up has been my coping mechanism: floaty white tunics, wide-leg linen pants, and straw hats with enormous brims–all in a color palette of tan and flax–would have been the perfect costume for the lazy beach vacation of my dreams.
Maybe next summer.
