Hello, and thanks for stopping by my blog!
White and light colored clothing in lightweight fabrics
are perfect to wear during the hot and sticky days of summer
July and August are especially challenging months in my area
to pull off a cool, calm and collected look!
Temperatures are in the 90's with high humidity as well (wilt 😰)
Today I am showing two white and light colored outfits
I have been wearing lately to beat the heat
My first outfit is all out white on white
The blouse is a snowy white short sleeve peplum style, with a sort of hybrid faux wrap front
The two front ties are decorative, with buttons doing the actually fastening
Worn with a summer favorite-white ankle crop straight leg denim jeans
Cool as a cucumber, but I haven't left the air conditioned house, yet!
For jewelry I chose a statement turquoise disc pendant necklace
to go with an aqua print headband to add a little color
Also accessorizing with a gold tone multi chain link and tassel bracelet, and large hoop earrings
Another circular motif in this look, is my round straw handle bag
with circular sea shell design
I call the color of these perforated stacked heel slides metallic Gilver,
because the color is somewhere between gold and silver
In the photo, the color skews a little more toward gold
Next is a another very cool and comfortable outfit to wear at this time of year
The blouse is whisper thin white cotton batiste
with a pretty pin tucked front and scalloped eyelet sleeve caps
I paired the blouse with a vertical watercolor stripe print midi skirt
in peach, tan and white. All great summer colors!
The skirt is high waisted, in a linen blend with a wide matching sash belt
I chose my brass tone reticulated butterfly necklace
to fill the wide U shaped neckline of this blouse
I think I will go with something lighter and daintier looking next time-
Live and learn!
Other jewelry is a gold tone oval link bracelet and small hoop earrings
Nude ankle strap sandals to finish the outfit
Here's an outfit from two years ago, in mid-August 2019
It looks like I was coping with humidity-hair
with the same wide white headband as in the outfit above!
Some white flowers of summer 🌸
Petunias are so pretty and hardy-they can thrive in the heat
and do well in cooler spring and fall temperatures, too
I love that they have such a long blooming season!
more pretty white summer blooms
I am taking a short blogging break next week
and will be back to posting on August 29-
see you then!
Hope everyone has a good week!
