Have you read Jody’s blog, About Last Weekend? She shares bits and pieces from her life with such a witty fresh perspective I often find myself laughing out loud. Well, last week she called me out. After sweetly asking for a photo of me in a summer dress she then put me on blast, pointing out that I never share photos of myself. Well, not being one to back down from a challenge (and having a few more photos of myself is said summer dress), I thought this the perfect opportunity for an outfit post.
Since moving to Singapore my entire wardrobe consists of summer clothing. Dresses, skirts and shorts are mainstays. On this particular evening the humidity was ridiculous. Even though we only had a 5-minute walk to dinner, I knew I wanted to wear something super light. This sleeveless silk dress was the perfect solution.
The bright orange color of the dress is a departure from my normal palette, but feels so completely summery that I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. I also like the simplicity of the cut, which allows me to dress this look up for a date night, but works fine for a quick bite with the family as well. On this outing I accented it with two necklaces and some gold open-toed flats (which of course you can’t see here!). Did I mention it was gross outside? It was so gross that I wasn’t even going to battle my hair. Instead I threw it up in a messy bun and hoped my Karen Walker sunglasses would help to detract from it.
What do you wear when the heat and humidity take over? What is your idea dress for summer? Could you live in a climate where it was summer year round?
