Happy Seersucker Thursday


"Seersucker Thursday" is an annual tradition in the United States Congress in which Senators wear seersucker...a staple in the Southerner's summer wardrobe.
In 1996 former Mississippi Senator Trent Lott designated the 3rd Thursday of June as "Seersucker Thursday". Doesn't this group of politicians look perfectly preppy in their summer seersucker suits? This tradition brings a little Southern hospitality to our nation's Capitol.

Yesterday, I was out spending my birthday money..."HERE'S WHAT I WORE"

The skort is blue and white seersucker, by Lilly and has a cute pink grosgrain ribbon belt. The pink tee is also by Lilly.
I carried a pink Lilly Bermuda bag, monogrammed of course, and wore my pink Lilly mules. I wore my pearl necklace & studs, my rollring wedding band by Cartier, and my 'Oyster Perpetual' watch by Rolex. My iPhone cover is monogrammed in pink and my fragrance of choice for the day was Burberry.




I wore my Chanel sunglasses with the newest addition to my croakies collection... seersucker croakies, by Tugs. They have the cutest sunglass holders y'all!


From Easter Sunday til Labor Day, you'll find Southerners everywhere dressed in this light and preppy fabric...sundresses, skirts, shorts, suits, and...croakies!

Thank y'all for stopping by today!

Love that seersucker! The politician in the bowtie with his seersucker suit is truly Southern. You look gorgeous in your soft crinkles!

My boyfriend worked on the hill for a summer in college for a congressman from Alabama and they LOVED seersucker Thursday. One of my favorite stories he tells :)

Too bad some of those people are NOT worthy of seersucker. You however look fabulous.

Love the seersucker look. I know an attorney who has a seersucker suit with a bow tie. He wears it to court at least once every 2 weeks. Very southern. . .very gentlemanly. . .very well mannered. Describes him to a "T"!!
