There’s regular summer hot, and then there’s this summer.
In the midst of relentless heat, I find myself turning to dresses and skirts a lot. Not only are they cooler than trousers, but a dress in particular makes an outfit that requires less thought from my heat-fried brain to assemble.
This outfit combines pieces I’ve worn before (and you may even remember).
The floral print feels a bit Asian influenced to me, so I thought of pairing it with this blue obi belt (last seen last summer.)
I thought these taupe shoes worked with the colors in the print.
I was stumped on a necklace, though. I don’t have anything the right weight or colors to balance the pattern and the belt, so I finally just went with a simple chain necklace with gold and silver interlocking rings.
