As promised I am going to share How to Stay Stylish in a Heatwave. I just spent four blistering days in the Atlanta Heat. I don’t wear shorts or short skirts, so how did I stay cool? Can you say linen? Yep, loose-fitting clothes (primarily linen with a few very lightweight cotton pieces thrown in) saved my life. Many of the pieces I took are not from the current season but I will try and link up those that are and find suitable substitutes where possible.
Day One was a traveling day. I wore cotton leggings and an off white long CP Shades tunic (from last season) and my Olukai flip flops.
Day two we hit the ground running at America’s Mart. I wore simple white leggings, an old navy camisole (my fav ) They are inexpesive, and camisoles only last a season so why spend a lot of $$$. I finished it off with a CP Shades linen tunic and my comfy korkease audrina sandals (no longer available).
On day three we headed to Scotts which is both indoors and out. We really needed to be casual and cool. I wore an old pair of Anthropologie white crops, (Love these they feel like pajamas), my favorite Michael Stars tee, my olukai flip flops and simple silver hoops and bracelets. That was it! I substituted these similar crops from Nordstom.
Day four found us back at Americasmart. I wore the linen lily skirt (new fav and the coolest thing I wore), j crew or cp shades linen shirt, horn jewelry and my favorite olukai ho opio flip flops. This was the outfit I got the most compliments on. This skirt is super flattering and incredibly comfy. I have shown it in cotton here. If you would like the linen email CP shades on Instagram and they will find it for you.
