Summer Style

I am the first to admit I don't have a strong summer dressing game.

My sister and I recently spent the day at The Biltmore Estate having lunch and touring the gardens and the conservatory. 

From earlier this year.

I wore a tunic provided by Foxcroft from a blog post earlier this year, with dark wash jeans and flat sandals. We planned to do lots of walking, and the weather person predicted cool temperatures for the day. However, instead of seventy degrees, it was more like ninety degrees that day.

Even though I was wearing a long sleeve tunic, I was still reasonably comfortable. I live in an area that isn't normally very hot, and I do not spend time outside during the heat of the day, so I don't have a separate wardrobe for summer. 

I am certain that those of you who live in areas with long hot summers may laugh at my choices. Even when the tops have sleeves and I wear them with white or light wash jeans, I am still fairly comfortable. I wear lightweight, loose fitting and light color natural fabrics during our hottest weather.

Sundresses and sleeveless tops are not my favorites, regardless of the heat. 

In honor of the first day of summer, I am sharing with you a few summer tops I would consider wearing with white or faded jeans.

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
