When the heat gets turned up, I tend to not want to get dressed up when going out of the house. I know, a fashion blogger not wanting to get dressed up, it doesn’t sound right but in my case it’s true. I hate feeling sticky and worse than that, is feeling sticky in fitted and/or “nice” clothes. It gets uncomfortable really quickly and not worth potentially ruining a nice silk blouse, having the liner of your dress stuck to your body, or feel like everyone can see you are sweating under your clothes, all are no good. So on days that are almost too hot to handle, a light weight cotton dress is a perfect option. I got this nautical striped number at Target. Target has hit the mark when it comes to summer Maxi dresses. There are a few others that have really caught my eye, like this one and this one. I love that this tshirt style maxi dress is so comfortable, not too body hugging, and has navy and white nautical stripes and side slits that add style to this otherwise plain dress. Making a statement with either earrings or a necklace is really all you need for a classically simple outfit that makes you look put together without much effort.
