Keeping with the Summertime Theme I started on the previous post, today I’m sharing five recent summertime outfits. I only share these because I like getting ideas from others, and I hope this will give you a little inspiration!
For a recent Sunday, I wore a white eyelet dress I got several years ago. I love this dress and truly consider it a staple for my wardrobe. I can wear flat sandals and a simple necklace to make this a very casual outfit. For church on Sunday, I added a turquoise belt and a necklace the same color. White slip-on heels finished off the white outfit.
Sometimes I wear that white dress with flat sandals and casual jewelry for a weekday outing. Dresses like this are great for versatility!
White pants are a staple for summertime, too, aren’t they?! For a casual daytime outfit, I wore a light blue scoop neck t-shirt and put a thin white tank underneath to keep the top modest and comfortable. I hate to be tugging at the neckline all day. I added a necklace, bracelet and a pair of white ankle sandals. If I wanted to dress this up for an outing, I could wear a pair of dressier sandals with a wedge or heel.
I wear skirts often in the summer. I think they can be cooler than shorts, even. I have many for casual days, then there are some like the one below, that can be dressed up or down. I found this one at a consignment store this summer and love it because it’s so comfortable and versatile!
Outfit for Anniversary Date night –
A lacy dress that a friend gave to me was perfect for our anniversary dinner out. I added a pair of beige heel/sandals. If I had wanted to dress this up even more, I could have added a dressier necklace. The restaurant we went to was pretty casual, so I dressed it down a little by wearing a simple necklace and gold bracelet.
I dress for my husband. Whether I go anywhere away from home or not, I try to wear what I know he’d like to see me wearing. Also, it is possible to be cool and modest at the same time. Thin layers may add a little more “warmth,” but it’s worth the price to keep our integrity in tack!
What are your favorite staple pieces for summertime wear? How do you stay cool AND modest?
