Survival: The AZ Summer

Arizona is truly a different breed of heat. Our summer's are comparable to those winter's of Minnesota, Colorado, Montana, etc.. It's literally too hot to do everything. The problem is we have no such thing as "heat days" - we still have to get up everyday, get to work and try and look cute doing it. I've been doing some research of stylish summer garb that won't break the bank and I won't get caught drenched in - sexy.

1. THE CHAMELEON:  the maxi dress

The maxi dress is utter perfection. Its both classy, airy and flatters about every shape! Add on a belt to a cotton maxi to cinch the waist and you're good from day to night. Rock a cardigan in the office then strap on some glitzy sandals for the evening.

Both of these looks are both so simple an elegant and can easily be dressed down or up without melting our pocketbooks or ourselves!

2. THE STAPLE: flowy tops

Why be sweaty and wear something tight doing it? Yuck. First of all ladies - ditch that super tight top, we're not in high school anymore. There's a difference between form fitting and tight - I'm not saying we have to go all garbage bag on the world but let's show a little sophistication. Flowy tops are the perfect compliment to jeans, skirts and shorts. They also bear the heat well and make us look like comfortable sun goddesses (as if we're used to this heat!)

3. PERSONALITY: playful shorts

We sure can't sport a lot in this heat, so might as well make what we're wearing stand out! Colorful shorts in fun shades and bold prints are a hit this season. These classic choices will take an AZ girl all the way from summer to fall.

Ahhh welcome Summer. One thing is certain for Arizona girls: we love the mall, it's freezing!

God Bless air conditioning!

Until Next Time...
