Keepin' Cool

Though there's sometimes nothing better than pulling on tall leather boots and wrapping up in a cashmere sweater, I absolutely love getting ready on summer days. I love the lightweight dresses, simple tanks, and slipping on sandals. Every. Single. Day.

It is so hot and humid in coastal Carolina some days that I rarely wear pants during the summer months. I did slip on a cute pair of fuchsia pants paired with a tank (and sweater) yesterday as I knew I would be spending the day in the ALS clinical offices for my sweet grandmother's doctors appointments, but that was definitely an exception.

Today, we spent the day apartment searching in preparation for my possible upcoming move for the new job, so nothing was more perfect than a lightweight Roxy dress. Roxy is not normally a go-to brand for me, but I happened to see this dress at T.J. Maxx and couldn't pass it up! It is so comfy, lightweight, and versatile, and it is great for a casual summer day. 

Unless I've had on my gym clothes, I've worn a some kind of dress almost every day this summer. I love my maxi dresses, especially for a date night with the boyfriend or a day out shopping. Those are definitely some of my favorite summer pieces! What's great about a maxi dress is the way you can dress it up or down. Flat sandals and stud earrings give off a casual vibe, but add wedges and some great jewelry, and you have a completely different look!

I'm a fan of Kristin Cavallari's casual summer look. This pairing was from back in 2011, but it could easily be worn in Summer 2013. I love the vibrant print of the maxi, paired with a simple white tee and long gold necklace. She looks effortlessly chic.

What do you pull out of your closet on a hot summer day?
