Beat the Heat

In the long, hot days of summer, sometimes you just have to give up on all that fashion stuff. The layering, the scarves, the just can't wear those when it is ninety-five degrees outside! And yes, you've already seen me in a few sundresses this summer...but here is another one!

You really can't go wrong in a pretty, colorful sundress and barely there sandals when it's ultra hot. You want clothes that allow whatever slim breeze there is to get to your skin. You want clothes that don't protect you from goose pimples when walking into an air conditioned building. You want clothes that look even better when you are holding an ice cream cone. Right? I think a sundress does all of those things, and manages to look a little more flirty than shorts and a tee. What do you wear when it's steamy outside?
