"Benjamin works long hours, and when he's home I have to share him with the kids—so I love days that he's all mine!" says Talisa. She looks thoroughly embraceable in this full-skirted halter dress ($550) from OMO Norma Kamali, a designer known for her terrific jersey clothing. Gold accessories—bangles (Melody Rodgers Collection) and sandals (Old Navy)—are a great foil for red, white, or blue, making potentially preppy colors look much more polished.
On Benjamin: Shirt, Woolrich John Rich & Bros. Vest, Banana Republic. Jeans, J.Crew.
