Summer days are so much more than family BBQ's or lounging in the sun. I am a busy mommy to three energetic children. Life isn't a runway, but I've never thought motherhood should be used as an excuse to shed all self-respect, even though pulling oneself together takes a lot more effort than it used to. The never-ending tasks of running errands and grocery shopping dominate many hours of the day, but it's no excuse for throwing on shower flip-flops and baggy, college t-shirts.
When looking for something to survive intensely humid weather, I try to think outside my "comfy" box to build a practical ensemble that is highly durable for the events of the day, choosing the most breezy version of the styles I like. Slipping into a jersey knit skirt that is soft as marshmallows and a drapy, kimono sleeve top is a super feminine approach to casual summer wear. Wearing fabrics that breathe is the best way to survive the most humid of days looking comfortable, cool and cute.
