*wipes sweat* I don’t know what it’s like in your area, but, oh my word, y’all, it is hot hot hot here in Georgia. I keep telling myself that I’m not gonna complain though because I know Winter is just around the corner. Not that we have very many cold days around here but we have enough to make me appreciate the heat. So I’m not gonna complain, I’m just going to make sure that I keep cool while looking cute. wink

During the “dog days of summer” I try to keep everything to a minimum: makeup, clothes, jewelry, every.thing. Although this dress is black and you immediately think soaking up the sun, the fabric is actually very cool and lightweight. And because of the relaxed fit, it doesn’t cling or make me sweat in the creases and crevices.

    Beautiful Daenel! I go as minimal as possible in the summer too. There’s nothing worse then feeling “weighed down” with accessories when it’s hot. I truly appreciate your kindness and support during the difficult time I recently experienced…thank you so much.
