Summer Cool :: Maxi Shirt Dress & Python Accents

Hello, dear friends! When the temperature stays above 80F consistently, it is safe to think summer is in full swing! Priority these days is to stay hydrated and cool. By which, I don’t mean throw oneself in the pool and order bar food all day long, but drink lots of water and wear clothing with good ventilation.Vince silk maxi shirtdress

Outfit today is a simple, no fuss, maxi shirt dress made of silk. The loose fit and side vents keep it cool despite the length of the dress. I also left a few buttons unbuttoned in the skirt to allow easy movement as well as enhance that wind sweep effect. Overall, it felt cooler than wearing a tank top and denim shorts because my skin had a silk “shield” against the blazing sun.

On a hot day like today, I prefer to wear as little jewelry as possible, especially those tend to get sticky, so I only wore metal bangles and a think lariat necklace. Simplicity doesn’t mean bland, these python strap sandals and Amor bag helped to elevate the whole outfit. As I’ve mentioned before, while matchy-matchy might seemed old school, it is a different game when it comes to exotic skin. The bag’s handle is also pure metal, every bit of cool touch helps. 😀
