shorts | top | handbag | sandals | earrings | lip shade portofino red
what’s a good way to beat the heat when the dog days of summer set in? slip into a light and airy caftan. or as in today’s ootd a short caftan purchased on sale at my local Talbots. similar here and here.
this top would look lovely with a wide leg pant for evening. today, i’m wearing a pair of on-trend scalloped shorts while bopping around town. this pair was also purchased at Talbots legendary red hangar sale.
straw handbags are a summer favorite of mine. this clutch with the cute sailor knot closure is Talbots circa 2015. but take heart, that a look at this one or this. there is always a large selection to choose from when warm weather hits town. keep your eyes peeled for a style you prefer.
i chose gold metallic sandals to compliment this simple outfit. similar here and here. does anyone remember the lily pulitizer collaboration with target a few years back? yup, these sandals were picked up then. silver or gold metallic shoes or sandals are a must-have in my closet as they act as a neutral.
chandelier earrings similar here and here and stacks of turquoise similar here and here are the perfect summer accessories.
now all i need is an ice cream cone to really beat this heat that’s paid a visit! stay cool ladies. and stay stylish while you’re at it.

It looks light and ethereal–which is great for a hot summer day. I saw a similar one I liked on JJill’s site in blue hues. I have a top like it (with light blues) that I wore over black pants for our graduation in May one year–it’s held under a tent and it’s usually hot as all get out, so it felt great. I got tons of compliments on it. I love the scalloped shorts in the white and the red–they look wonderful! And I agree–that would look fabulous over white pants.
there’s something special about a hot summer day and a lightweight outfit! your top sounds delightful and i know you appreciate an outfit that can take the heat and still keep you looking great.
Another winner! Caftans are as cool and breezy as can be in the summer heat. I wear mine with straight-line white jeans.
that sounds absolutely perfect! nothing like an easy breezy outfit when the temps heat up!
