Seersucker Thursday!

Happy Seersucker Thursday!  Yes, I know I am a month late for the "Official" Seersucker Thursday, but it has been so blasted hot (not that I am complaining!) I think every summer Thursday should be Seersucker Thursday! 
Did you know that there truly is an official Seersucker Thursday?  It traditionally arrives on the 3rd Thursday in June.  It began with Senator Trent Lott of Mississippi, who in 1996, wanted to "bring a little Southern charm to the Capitol", not to mention, it gets hot in Washington (in more ways than one!).
I am really impressed at how well our Capitol Hill representatives got into the entire seersucker vibe!  Don't they just look nicer?  More civil?  More refined?  If they dressed this way more often, I just know our world would be a better place!
Whether you are a bow time or a tradition tie kind of guy, seersucker makes my heart sing and makes any man more handsome. 
This past Easter my sweeties all decided to take the cool route and celebrate the arrival of the Southern Season in seersucker.  See more Southern Somedays Seersucker here: Easter 2010

In case you need some seersucker in something other than a traditional blue or pink; what about this beauty - the Franco dress from Lilly? Lilly Pulitzer Franco Dress
Or this for the sweet, little, pink princess in your life (ooooh, I wish I had a baby girl to buy for!): 
I love seersucker and all my babies had their fair share of seersucker love
(Seersucker and a Southern Mamas Heaven).  Just remember seersucker isn't just for clothes...isn't this an adorable Moses Basket?  Find it at: Wendy Anne Moses Basket at Cozy Babies
So, cool off y'all and put on your seersucker...you will be all the better for it!

Oh, I love searsucker. It reminds me of my grandfather - he used to wear a blue and white searsucker blazer! Also, I know you are in SC now, but I was wondering if you had any advice on where to go near the Dawsonville/Gainesville GA area for monogramming? I live in Dawsonville and need to find a good place! Thanks, Carrie

Carrie, I wasn't able to figure out how to get back in contact with you for a monogramming suggestion but (if you know where Kroger on Thompson Bridge in Gainesville is - My daughter says the monogramming place in that shopping center is very reasonable but I haven't used them). I used to get all my monogramming done by a girl who did it out of her house but she doesn't do it anymore :-( but I have used Unique Designs in downtown Gainesville 770-534-8875 and also the gals at Cozy Corner suggested Amy White of Sew Sassy at 770-718-9215...hope you see this!!! Also, I saw this link to what might be a good possibility in the Jones Creek area (not too far south from you) http://www.sassygirldesign.com/faqs.php

Love this post! Yes, I agree with your comment about our senators! I found all my years of teaching that the "better" dressed people are, the better they behave. Never did see a fight in a tuxedo or suit {prom time} ;-)
