Summer's last bits

This week will be beautiful, it will feel like summer's last hurrah. The nights will be perfectly chilly for sleeping and the days all in the mid-70s. I know I will be trying to wear every dress fit for summer that I own that I have not worn yet. This dress notwithstanding, it's quite possibly the easiest dress to wear, it's like a daytime nightgown, gauzy cotton, super soft, no waistband and two soft layers. I love all of the super soft 1970s cotton, gauze, crochet, knit, pale garments, and unlike most other style/eras of clothing it doesn't really have a bonefide name that one can search. If you want a 1950s dress there is a vocabulary you can access to search for one, likewise with 1960s, mod,hippie,1930s, flapper, etc. But this whole super-natural, sort of bohemian, natural fiber, pale and easy way of dressing is without a name. When I search on Etsy looking for something like this dress, or one of the many pale cotton 1970s blouses I have I am always stuck as there isn't a surefire way to search knowing I'll find what I am looking for. Perhaps it makes all the garments that I have like this, all the more special.
