We had a cool snap last weekend, and I wanted to take advantage of the dip in temperatures to take a break from short sleeves. I wore this to the festival we went to, and the combination of long sleeves and shorts was ideal for spending Friday evening on a hillside with good food and drinks. 

Who’s ready for the weekend? I am! I am!

A peek at my weekend

Ending the weekend with a summer grill session: steaks, onions and corn on the cob.

A Saturday morning walk around Lake Zorinsky was absolutely necessary; we had 70-degree weather this weekend, so being outside as much as possible was a no-brainer. On Friday, we headed to a local festival to try some new food and drinks (wearing TJ Maxx sandals and a Maurizio Taiuti bag).

Saturday evening was spent at the Omaha Country Club pool. I had an amazing melon prosciutto pasta salad and got a little relaxation time in with some glossies.

Sunday funday was all about the wave pool; I spent half my time in the pool and half my time covered with my beach towel to prevent sunburn as much as possible. I wore a Target coverup and bag (recently snagged on clearance) with Havaianas sandals.

Casual summer

It’s about this time of year that I begin to hate my summer wardrobe. Nothing seems to work well in humid heat, and I look into my closet at all my fall/winter pieces and imagine them feeling lonely and unused. A T-shirt and shorts seem too simple to put on a style blog, but I like to keep it real here on Re-Mix-Her. So today, you’re getting my casual summer look. This is the look I reach for when I feel as though I have nothing to wear. A comfortable T-shirt and jean shorts can be hard to find, so I keep these near and dear in my closet, in easy reach for the days when I hate my summer clothes.

Not my normal cup of tea

I try to steer clear of anything that resembles tie dye. I never really wore it as a child and certainly didn’t plan to as an adult. However, this dress is my exception. It reminds me more of the ocean than of its subtle tribute to tie dye, and with its breezy high-low skirt, I feel like I’m wearing an ocean wave. 

Comfort is key

For me, an everyday dress has to be comfortable for me even to consider buying it. Comfort, however, does not mean you have to sacrifice style. Take this dress, for instance; the cotton jersey is stretchy and breathable (even for a hot, summer day), and the stripes are classic (therefore always in style). Dresses don’t have to be fussy to be stylish, nor do they have to be sacrificed for other items (shorts, jeans, etc.) in the name of comfort.

Do you find dresses comfortable, or would you rather be in shorts, jeans or trousers?
