All inhibitions and fashion rules are put aside on the days when the temperatures climb above ninety, and the humidity is one hundred percent. On sweltering days, I keep my style intact by wearing a cotton or crepe mid-calf length dress with a hat and sunglasses. This formula has worked for me since I was in my late thirties. That’s when I stopped wearing shorts.
The tan packable hat was by Betmar via Belk last year. The earrings are from J.Jill. The sunglasses are by Dolce & Gabbana via Sunglasses Hut. My sunscreen is by Beautycounter here. So is my lip color. It is the color Scarlet here.
The sandals were from last year. They are by Ralph Lauren via Dillard’s. The nail color is “Tell Me About It Stud” from OPI here. The straw bag is here on my shopping site.
The white cotton dress has an A-line shape which is perfect for women with a pear-shape. I am wearing the size large, and it has been altered to make it less A-Line since I have no hips. Alterations are very easy to do on the side seam under the bust to the top of the slit. Hemming would also be easy to do. This dress has now sold out but, I have ordered more in the navy and the khaki. They should arrive in about two weeks. There are other styles of dresses in the Sale Section on my shopping site here.
