The thought of rolling hills and farmlands makes you a little nervous.

We’ve got just the thing for you, city girl. Bring out your inner Holly Golighty with DIY summer projects like this Summer Brunch Free Dress Pattern.
Your style is more classic than it is contemporary. You work florals like it is your day job. You bring a lot of classic ladylike elegance to your wardrobe while still making it all your own.
