Staying Corporate Casual Cool in the Summer Sizzle

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.

The heat is on and the struggle continues, dressing Corporate Casual in July and August while staying cool can be challenging.  However, wearing a sheath dress is just one way that keeps me cool all summer long.

A sheath dress is very transitional, in the early Spring and Autumn I will wear a blazer or cardigan over top, and because of the scoop neck in the Winter I’ll wear a turtleneck underneath.  But in the heat of the Summer it’s just cotton undergarments and open toe-sandals!

It can be difficult to stay cool when the temps rise above 80 degrees but just thinking about last winter’s snow storm helps! maximum heat

Burlington Coat Factory has a large selection of sheath dresses and they are all reasonably priced.  However, Ross Dress for Less and of course Goodwill are other places that I’ve also found a good selection of them.

The best thing about a sheath dress is that it’s flattering to all shapes and sizes and can be worn by woman of any age.  Patterns makes it easy to accessorize as not much is needed when the print is busy.

Staying cool in Corporate Casual during the summer sizzle is a breeze if I wear light, loose fitting fabric that allows air circulation, is sleeveless and a pair open toe sandals and for that I am thankful!

How about you, do you love sheath dresses as much as I?  If so, I’d love to see a pic so send one and then at the end of the month I’ll do a Summer Sheath Sizzle Roundup” which will include a surprise GIVEAWAY

This week I am thankful for my family, my friends and of course my faith. I am thankful that my son is home and recovering nicely and I am thankful for a cool breeze every now and then!

Now it’s your turn, what are you thankful for this week?

Stay Blessed ~ No Stress in 2014!
