Summer has arrived and it is going to get HOT! The temperature has been soaring above 90 degrees here in Florida and I don’t really have that many dresses to get me through living full time in the tropics.
Nothing feels and looks cooler than lightweight, breezy dresses in the heat of Summer!
My legs are still not in their best form after breaking my ankle and not walking for several months, so I am not ready for minis anytime soon. I definitely feel more comfortable in knee-length or longer dresses that keep my legs covered, which has the added bonus that I don’t have to worry about bending over! 🙂
Lucky for us, there are so many great dresses for sale. I love everything from big bold prints to small florals and classic solids. The key is to try them on and see how they fit.
Invest in Alterations!
Yes! If the dress (or any piece of clothing) is too loose in the waist, the straps are falling down or the length is not flattering – take it to a seamstress or tailor to make the necessary alterations. That way you get it to work best for YOUR figure.
Don’t forget to get a full slip!
Another big one for me! If the dress is too sheer or too low cut, wear a full slip. I wear a slip under almost every single one of my dresses. Read more about slips in this post.
Now enough about the details.. let’s go shopping for dresses! Below are the ones that caught my eye. Stay cool and wear a dress! 🙂
