Pink slip: what to wear during a heat wave

If there was ever a piece designed especially for the summer heat, it’s a slip dress…don’t you agree??

I suppose you could argue that a bikini would be better; but unless you’re spending a day at the beach, it’s probably not the most viable option!!  Besides, lycra and neoprene just can’t compete with the way the light-as-air fabric of a dress like this dusty mauve wrap version captures even the smallest breeze!!

And if you’re spending any time at all out in the sun, a hat (or other head covering) is non-negotiable as well.  I happen to adore the combination of pink and orange, so this straw garden hat felt like the perfect match.  And besides, it’s striped…and who doesn’t love stripes for summer?!

The eagle-eyed among you may have noticed my new blush-toned block-heeled sandals, too.  They’re not a recent purchase – I’ve had them languishing in my closet since early spring – but today marked their official debut.  It’s apparent lately that I can’t resist anything in pink!!  ๐Ÿ˜
