It’s very hot these days, and that’s a problem for me for two reasons.
1. As my friend Patti said, Atlanta summers always make her feel half-dead. Well put. I totally agree. I am barely alive as I write this.
2. It’s hard to look good in this intense heat. Unless, you’re a fan of sweaty faces, frizzy hair, and shorts. I personally have a problem with all three.
Being a natural problem solver and self-appointed expert on everything, I’ve decided to offer up some summer fashion tips. Here are four looks I’ll be alternating this hellish summer.
The Atlanta Uniform
This is me wearing the Atlanta uniform, otherwise known as a cute mini-dress and cowboy boots. I don’t have an issue with moms and mini-skirts or whatever. Just don’t wear tight dresses. They make me think of old school Mariah Carey, something we’re all trying to forget. My dress is from Target, and the boots are from Urban Outfitters in San Francisco. The photo was taken by my son, who took one look at the photo and said, “I think this one is perfect.”
