Summer Lovin

I had grand, patriotic plans to wear red and white on Canada Day this year.

Turns out the only red items I own leave me rather overdressed in 30+ degree weather. Who knew.

Shirt: Community / CPW: $27.30 / # of wears: 3
Tank: Twik / CPW: $1.42 / # of wears: 14
Shorts: Columbia / CPW: $14.76 / # of wears: 4
Purse: Mulberry / CPW: $105.88 / # of wears: 17
Sandals: made by an artisan in Santorini / CPW: $6.00 / # of wears: 5
Sunglasses: Mercury / CPW: $1.54 / # of wears: 11
Watch: Skagen / CPW: $5.93 / # of wears: 23
Earrings: Mimi & Marge / CPW: $28.35 / # of wears: 2
# of wears counted since October 1, 2016

Admittedly, I’m terrible at dressing for the heat. I never had the knack for summer dressing, and I don’t own a ton of warm weather clothes. I just don’t find them versatile once the weather cools down.

This shirt is the first warm weather purchase I can think of in recent memory that I planned on trying to make work beyond a single season.

What do you wear in the summer? How do you dress to beat the heat?

    I really like this outfit! It looks very comfortable for summer.

    I also find summer-time dressing very difficult. I really don’t enjoy hot, humid weather, so it makes me very lazy about getting dressed. I like relaxed-fit dresses in summer-friendly fabrics (rayon, silk, etc.) though the resulting outfits lean very casual.

    I actually own no red clothes and Canada Day is the only day all year that I ever worry about this! I just don’t find I look good in red, so I don’t buy it. This year we had a wedding to go to on Canada Day, so I had even less guilt about it than I usually do.

      You have an easy out if you don’t find it flattering! I do actually like red, but it’s sorely missing from my summer wardrobe.
