The temperatures almost reached 90 last week. Can you believe that? I know that some of you out there are still experiencing snow on the ground, so the prospect of steamy 90 degrees is almost unthinkable. I actually don’t think I’m ready for it myself.
Well, it seems as though it is time to start breaking out my warm weather wardrobe. Do you tend to have a particular style of clothing you wear when the temperatures rise? I know I do.
For me, my “uniform” becomes lightweight dresses for much of the time. They have movement, they look put together, they’re comfortable, and keep me cool. When I spotted this pleated black dress at LOFT, I knew it would be perfect. The lightweight material is breezy, and the fit (at least on me) is a little bit on the loose side, which keeps it comfortable. Plus: classic black. Can’t go wrong there. However, if color is more of your thing, the same dress is available in orange as well!
As with a lot of black dresses, there is the option to dress it up or dress it down. For a day of running errands, I’d throw on a pair of sandals, but to meet up with a group of gals for brunch I decided to strap on some of my favorite printed heels. I’m still obsessed with my Carol heels from ShoeMint. I wish they made the same shoe in multiple colors so I could purchase additional pairs. I don’t see them on the ShoeMint site for sale anymore, but I did find them listed on Heels.com, so head over there if you’d like to snag a pair yourself!
What is your go-to warm weather wardrobe item?
