The heat, my God the heat!!

This is what I wore the other day to meet an old college girlfriend for dinner and for our men to meet {double date night!} but with this intense heat wave it makes it nearly impossible to get dressed and feel fashionable when sweat is dripping down your face!
So when the heat rolls around, so do the sundresses!
Perfect, airy, and light to keep you as cool as possible.
Outfit Details
Sundress: Target (last summer) // Earrings: Francesca's Collection // Sandals: Target (still in stores)
Watch: Michael Kors // Leather Bracelet: Tory Burch // Purse: Michael Kors
And of course I have to throw in a picture of me and D : )
But the funniest part of the night was showing up at my girlfriend's house to find her dressed like this:
After all these years, we still show up dressing alike!!
I guess some things will never change : )

What are your favorite go-to outfits to beat the heat?

    1. Yay for Jersey blogging girls! And isn't it how funny how sisters/friends always end up dressing alike without even trying? haha

  2. Adorable dress! And I agree...it has been hot everywhere. I live on FL, but was in the outer banks of NC this weekend for a wedding on the beach (it was over 100) and was oh so thankful for my super light sundress! Also...thankful that I put my hair up in a ponytail. Love your blog!
