When the temperatures and humidity rise, a dress is the most comfortable clothing option. Packing for travel to warmer climates is a breeze when you take a few dresses. If they can be worn with other items to create different looks, that’s even better.
I added a two-inch wide black belt instead of the self-belt that comes with the dress. A wider belt would have taken up too much room and made my short waist look even shorter.
A similar dress to the one above is here. A similar belt is here. The shoes are here. A similar bag is here. A similar bracelet is here.
I occasionally enjoy wearing prints if they include a small repeating pattern such as dots or stripes. Midi length is much more comfortable for me than a knee-length dress. Dresses with buttons down the front, a V-neckline, or a wrap-style waist are the best options for my inverted triangle shape. Since I have a short waistline, petite sizes often work for me. The best styling tip is always to wear the shapes, colors, and fabrics that flatter your shape and coloring.
I chose this chambray dress because it buttons up the front, making it also perfect as a beach coverup. It has long sleeves to allow me to wear it as a topper over a black turtleneck, leggings, and boots in the winter. A similar dress is here and here.
Similar shoes are here. Similar tote bag here. Similar sunglasses are here.
The block heel nude shoes are here. The handbag is here. The jacket is here. A similar belt is here.
A tank-style dress can be worn in countless ways. Dressed up or down, it will be cool and comfortable. I always feel most authentic when I am dressed up, but I’m also showing you how I might wear the linen dress during my next beach trip.
The linen tank dress is here, and a similar one is here. The white denim jacket is here. Similar sneakers are here. A similar straw bag is here.
I purchased the items in today’s post over the past several months or years, so the exact pieces may no longer be available, but as always, I looked for similar current items for the shopping links.
Pearl earrings are the perfect Mother’s Day gift. The updated styling of the pair I wore in all the looks today means that you can even wear them with jeans and sneakers. They have a timeless appeal.
In honor of Mother’s Day (in the USA), I am teaming up with my very talented friend Suzanne, the designer of Beauty in Stone Jewelry, to give away a pair of these beautiful pearl earrings (here).
I am also giving away the new fifty-one-inch silk scarf pictured below. Please leave me a content suggestion in the comments section below to add your name to the “bowl.” I will randomly choose a comment next week, and the winner will receive both items.
I used the timer on my Sony Alpha a5100 camera and a tripod to take these photos. Shopping links sometimes allow me to earn a small commission at no extra charge to you.
