The first Monday of August means I am joining my nine ageless style sisters to showcase the styling of one them. Debbie of Fashion Fairy Dust chose the theme this month: The Heat is On! Since we live all over the country I can hardly wait to see what everyone wears when the summer heat hits. I hope you’ll enjoy paying everyone a visit!
If you have visited my blog before (welcome back!) then you know I mention the heat and humidity ad nauseam. It impacts every fashion choice I make. I like to be stylish and put together but I also need to be comfortable. So here’s a look at how I dress when the heat is on!
Dresses and skirts always seem cooler than shorts or pants. If I am planning to spend any amount of time outside I’ll opt for a dress or skirt. The less fabric the better when the heat is on!
My slipdress is the perfect go-to summer dress. Lightweight, doesn’t cling and feels like I’m wearing nothing at all! You know what’s funny about this dress? I bought it when Debbie shared it last fall – yup, she inspired me!
The side slits offer extra ventilation and that is always appreciated!
I wore this dress on Friday night to meet our best friends for dinner at a restaurant. Yes, we actually ate in a restaurant and lived to tell about it. As much as I love a hat I don’t normally wear them at night. However, my hair if out of control. The bangs are too long and the roots are insane. I have an appointment on Tuesday night so in the meantime, hello hats!
Just because it’s hot doesn’t mean I am ignoring accessories. This year I am wearing my jelly bracelets almost daily. They are lightweight and waterproof and as an added bonus they don’t react at all to body lotion or self tanner. I wear these earrings often too. Good news – this month a similar earring in a metallic print is only $22!
Last Friday I gave you a glimpse of my new skirt. It is short, and is a faux wrap with a side tie and zips up the back.
So that’show I dress when the heat is on, how about you? Link up with us and pay a visit to everyone to see what they are styling!
