Your last couple of weeks has probably been busy. Sometimes you almost need a vacation from your vacation. How do you put it together to keep up with the modern day woman’s busy lifestyle? Another ongoing summer project can be cleaning out the closet. This week a find was an easy going dress that was great for a meeting. If it is hot and you have to look cool a washable cotton polyester blend is the way to go. The fabric will breathe and you can toss it in the washer and dryer. Hang it up quickly after you grab it from the dryer and you are ready to go.
Maybe you need to go from a meeting to a dinner out. The dress is a Jaclyn Smith design from Kmart from a previous summer. This came from the Kmart in West Mifflin a southern suburb of Pittsburgh. It is a great dress if work somewhere that does not have air conditioning or if you move in and out from outdoors into air conditioning. How do you stay cool under those conditions? Value the comfort and practicality of cotton polyester blend. Cotton adds breathability and can absorb perspiration and the polyester allows the garment to not wrinkle and maintain the shaping of garment. This dress is doubly great because it comes with its own slip. It is attached to the dress so you do not have to keep up with it. It is a great grab and go outfit.
The look is accessorized with a straw bag picked up on sale last season from TJMaxx at the Waterfront Mall store in the Homestead a community east of the City of Pittsburgh. What is summer without a straw bag? Shop around to find one. It always looks …summer.
To finish it off add a vintage 1960’s necklace in brown and white picking up the brown and white giraffe print of the dress. Shoes are a comfortable favorite from Naturalizer platform sandal. These were picked up on sale last season at Famous Footwear in the Village Square Mall complex in the south hills suburbs of Pittsburgh.
Another favorite easy care top is a previous summer season from Style & Company at Macy’s South Hills Village store in the South Hills suburbs of Pittsburgh. Sometimes the air conditioning can be powerful in the workplace in order to keep the electronic equipment cool. The knit Style & Company top is great for working in air conditioning then take off in style to lunch out in seriously air-conditioned restaurant.The 3/4 length sleeve is great for air conditioning and still has a current look though it is a former season design. It is summery look that keeps you warm and still look summer cool. One again the top is washable and can be thrown into the dryer. Hang it up right after it comes out of the dryer then grab it and throw it on. You are good to go on your busy day crisp, fresh, and fashionable. It is great to get out and about without the constant rain western Pennsylvania has had this season. Those rainy days spent inside shopping in your closet can pay off. Get out and enjoy the great sunshine when you can in a comfortable yet fashionable outfit.
