When it is this hot outside, all I want to slip on is a casual, comfortable dress – one that works for running errands or puttering around the house. Given that the Nordstrom Annual Anniversary Sale ends this Sunday, August 2nd, I’m profiling the perfect casual dress plus coordinating accouterments on sale from Nordstrom for only three more days.
Dress: Gibson Stripe A-Line Dress in Heather Grey/Ivory | Sunglasses: Gucci 58mm Cat Eye Sunglasses | Handbag: Cole Haan Antonia Snake Print Crossbody Bag in Black/Ivory Snake | Earrings: Kendra Scott Dani Stone Drop Earrings in Gunmetal/Turquoise | Bracelet: Kendra Scott Arden Station Cuff Bracelet in Gunmetal Turquoise | Shoes: UGG Sadie Studded Flip Flop in White Leather
A Hot Weather Casual Dress With Cool Summer Style
In this heat, wearing a loose jersey knit dress is more comfortable than a top with shorts. The Gibson Stripe A-Line Dress in Heather Grey/Ivory ($58, Made in USA) is perfect with its easygoing style. The shoulder pleats are a cute detail. It is also available in Heather Grey/Black and Navy/Ivory.
Necessary Accoutrements Include the Perfect Shades, Jewerly, Handbag & Sandals
Since one of my dogs nibbled on my current pair of sunglasses, I’m considering the lovely Gucci 58mm Cat Eye Sunglasses. (Sale: $196.90, After Sale: $295) A neutral, striped dress would look awesome with similarly hued print handbag. Cole Haan’s Antonia Snake Print Crossbody Bag in Black/Ivory Snake is my recommendation. (Sale: $145.90, After Sale: $218) It will look great with your fall and winter outfits too!
Because I love color, and I really love a pop of color with neutrals, great jewelry to wear with the dress are Kendra Scott’s Dani Stone Drop Earrings in Gunmetal/Turquoise (Sale: $33.90, After Sale: $52) and Kendra Scott Arden Station Cuff Bracelet in Gunmetal Turquoise. (Sale: $32.90, After Sale: $50) The earrings are also available in Gold/Amethyst Quartz and Rodium/Blue Cat Eyes. The bracelet is also available in Gold/Amethyst Quartz and Rhodium/Rose.
I want as little as possible on my feet during summertime. A comfortable leather thong sandal is ideal. UGG’s Sadie Studded Flip Flop in White Leather is exactly that. (Sale: $59.90, After Sale: $84.95, Nordstrom Exclusive) It is also available in Ash Nubuck and Black Nubuck. Wearing UGGs is like walking on a cloud.
