Susan Ronning says she usually dresses very casually, but she made an exception for the Literacy Council's Taste of Cooper-Young.
This cute print halter is from Banana Republic and ties around the waist. (We had a discussion whether the print is navy or black, and to this day, I still don't know the answer.)
"I dress extremely casual," she told me, "like beachwear and work-out clothes."
It occurs to me that sometimes you can tell a lot about a person by what they're wearing (or by what they tell you they wear, in this case). Like beachwear ... I immediately thought, this person is not from Memphis. This is a California girl. And I am jealous. B/c I really love beachwear.
