The heat is on

Well starting today it is going to be like an uber furnace outside.  We've had some warm/hot weather so far this year, but this is going to be our first "heat wave" with temps going up to 96F and staying above 90 over the next several days.  So, I'll try my best not to whine about the heat, but I will warn you all now, it might be hard not to!


Given the heat coming at us today, there was no other option but to wear a dress.  And I decided the most comfy dress was the best choice too, especially when I have errands to run after work.  So, the best dress ever gifted to me from my Pants Monkey was the best choice for me today!  I haven't had a chance to wear it when it's been warm yet, so today was the perfect day to do so!


It's so comfy and it's keeping me nice and cool.  It's hard to get terribly creative when it's so darn hot!  I'm not going to let it get me down though, cause you  know what, I might not like the heat, but I don't possess a magic wand to make it go away, so gotta just go with it!

Outfit rundown:
Dress - VS
Tank under dress - Maurices
Shoes - Mootsie Tootsie
Jewelry - Bead for Life

  6. You are one of the few people I know who can wear gray and just look AMAZING! It's such a suiting colour for you...I'm quite jealous 'cause I love grey. And clearly can never decide how to spell it ;0

  7. A simple, comfy dress is always my go-to in the heat, too. And this one is very cute on you! Hopefully you manage to stay cool this week!

  8. Gah yeah, the heat is out of control. We had the slightest bit of breeze yesterday, but today it's cranking back up. I probably should have opted for a dress.

    I love this "mink" colored dress. I think it's such a great neutral shade. You rock it, girl!

  15. All I wanted to wear today was a yank top and shorts, but a dress is a good alternative.

  17. UGH I hear you. It's gonna be 100 tomorrow, and I am just dreading it. I plan on wearing as little as possible (so yeah, a dress) and staying indoors!

  18. Comfy is the way to go when it's hot. I'm not looking forward to any heat waves. I don't do well in super hot weather. Love the dress. It really does look quite comfortable. Try to stay cool and hydrate!
