Happy Thursday ladies. I’m sure many of you enjoy the beauty of a cool summer dress, but it’s a significant style switch for me. Whoever said you couldn’t teach an old dog new tricks hasn’t met me or my ever-evolving style recipe.
The one and done sensibility of a dress appeals to me for several reasons this summer. Our hot weather is at the top of the list, followed closely by my desire to simplify things. When temperatures are sweltering, I find nothing more cooling than linen, and if you put that in a loose-fitting dress, all the better.
I feel like I could hide a basketball under this dress, and I’m just fine with that. It has a slight trapeze shape that I could always add a belt to, but that would defeat the whole purpose of its shape! When it’s hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk, I crave airflow, and belts don’t allow that.
At 102 degrees, I want nothing more than an easy one and done dress with simple sandals. I like these espadrilles so much, I bought two pairs this summer. After five months of wearing flat shoes, I don’t know if I will ever go back to any form of heels.
These are the Mar Gemstone earrings from Dean Davidson in a crystal blue topaz. I have an upcoming post on this amazing designer with an extra special discount for my readers plus a giveaway so stay tuned!
I seldom wear patterns because they’re memorable, and my mix and match wardrobe mentality says I will get more use out of a solid. But the thing is, with a dress, you are not coordinating it so you can just have fun with it.
Here are some other great linen dresses to help you get through the rest of the summer.
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident!
