End of Summer Favorites: Day Dresses

day-dresses
Hey lovely muses! I hope everyone is still enjoying their summer (if it happens to be summer in your part of the world). I've always been a fan of warmer climates and that's probably due to the fact that I used to live in the Caribbean and then grew up in south Florida. And now that I live in what is possibly the hottest place in America (Arizona), the heat just keeps on coming.

During the summer months, this desert is about 102 degrees on average with the occasional haboob -- I didn't know what that was before I moved here. <--- Check the video link; it's pretty OMG.

So, to keep cool I've been staying hydrated, keeping sheltered when possible and wearing clothes that allow my body to breathe. Since most people tend to compare the Arizona summer heat to walking into an oven, I try to cool off by wearing stylish day dresses. The purple dress that I wore in this lookbook post is an example of that.

All the day dresses seen here I spotted on Very.co.uk for great prices. I think you'll enjoy them as they're a great combination of function and fashion!

Wow, that is one huge dust storm! Hope you don't have too many of those! Love the dresses, by the way. I wear a lot like there here in Chicago, because I think 80 degrees is hot. ;)

Gorgeous dresses! Love the little white dress :)

Lily said...

theres something sophisticated about crochets that I absolutely love, especially when it's in like a short of loose hobo jumper...

Bonnie said...

As much as I love day dresses, I never wear them. I'm not a huge dress person. I like skirts. And dresses. But not all the time. Just for special occasions so I can show off my hot legs.

Did that make any sense??

As much as I'd love to shop UK webstores, the exchange rate just hurts too much right now. I'm loving that shift dress though.

Heather Fonseca said...

Love your day dresses for Summer and I wish I had more. So, does, Summer finally become Fall in like November where you live too? I find Fall fashion the cruelest. It comes out right when it's really heating up here in L.A!
