Summer dressing can be challenging if you are more comfortable not showing lots of skin. I have not worn shorts in twenty years, and knee-length dresses are never flattering for my shape. Lightweight pants and an openwork top can be a good lunch date look.
We parked in front of the air-conditioned restaurant, walked a few feet, and then sat down, so heels and jeans were doable on this day.
The jeans are here. This denim is very lightweight and soft.
