Keep It Cool

July 8, 2016








While summer brings about long sunny days, backyard BBQs with friends and all the fun activities that you can fit in, it also brings on the heat. Temperatures can soar which can make getting dressed for all of these outings quite a task. Who wants that feeling of your clothes sticking to you? I think it’s safe to say nobody. Fear not though, there is a solution! I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, it’s all about the fabrics you choose. The correct fabric choices can be your best ally to combat the summer sun rays. One material that is perfect for keeping cool is cotton. Cotton has so many characteristics that allow you to dress in style while also dressing appropriately for the season. It’s breathable, durable, a scent repellant and can be made into the cutest of garments.

Hence my look! Stripes are totally on-trend and a great pattern to have in your wardrobe. The style of this skirt is already one that allows for air to flow through but with it being 95% cotton, it adds extra assurance that you will be cool all day long (and stylish too might I add). So the next time you are looking for that perfect brunch outfit with your girls, check the label and look for cotton. You will be happy you did! For more information, go to
