In 1997 Former Mississippi Senator Trent Lott started Seersucker Thursday in Congress on the third Thursday of June. The tradition lasted until 2012 when they decided it wasn't "modern" so they stopped it, but Representative Bill Cassidy (as in the Sundance Kid?) made it his mission to get it started again. The photo above is of this year's participants. Aren't they nifty? As Town & Country proclaimed: SQUAD GOALS!

L.L. Bean just began their 60% off sale. They have several pieces of seersucker on sale right now. I love the Signature blazer with either the shorts or pants. A few years ago I bought a plum and white seersucker pantsuit from Isaac Mizrahi, but I would love a blue and white dress with blazer. For the men in your life, nothing tops Brooks Brothers seersucker suit. Ralph Lauren has THE CUTEST seersucker outfits for babies. I'm currently wearing a vintage pink and white seersucker tank dress from Lanz.
