Florida summer can be scorching, and dripping with humidity. Dressing for the office isn’t very hard, because the house, car and workplace are well air-conditioned.
For days that involve running errands, biking, shopping, ballgames, and lunching out, we need super-comfortable, lightweight and light-colored pieces. Washable of course!
Here’s a small capsule for my casual days, based around two linen skirts. I love linen in the heat, and I don’t mind the wrinkles. The tops are light and airy too, and in summery florals. I’m really trying to move away from my standard black tees (but how will my friends recognize me?).
Jewelry has to be light and barely-felt. And I still love a watch, although I fear they are being phased out by cell phones. Ahh, progress.
Do you have a summer uniform for the hottest days? Readers over 50: do you bare your arms? I do, because it’s hot and there’s nothing shameful about arms that have lived a few years. Visible, and Not Dead Yet, that’s us.
Have a fun-filled Saturday, stay fabulous, and I’ll see you at Visible Monday tomorrow,
Friendly reminder: Visible Monday starts Sunday at around 5PM. Be there for all the visible celebrations!
