There is nothing more appropriate for this heat and humidity than a simple, flowy dress for a night out. Simple sandals, and elegant accessories make it as easy as it is chic.
I'm not a huge night owl, so rather than spend a lot on party dresses, I typically haunt sale racks or the juniors department for something age appropriate, classy, yet party perfect. I like how a simple dress like this can be taken from super casual to glam depending on what I pair with it.
Shortly after we took these photos we had tornado warnings, eery green skies, and buckets of rain. One of these days I'm going to figure out how to armor my hair against the humidity, but my fine-yet naturally curly-hair just doesn't hold up against it for anything.
I'm learning that heat doesn't really bother me so much, it's the humidity. Sigh.
To take it a step further, I think it's great to try to wear party or what I call "vacation" dresses for the work day. Anything we can do to extend our wardrobe and keep the closet purposeful and concise, right? Add a simple blazer, neutral shoes, a statement watch, and voila.
So over to you...how do you extend the life of your specialty items? Party dresses? Vacation wear?
