WIW: A summer outfit

As I commented on Angie's post today, I feel much more stylish in fall and winter clothes than in summer clothes.

However, when hot days finally arrive, I do want to wear those few warm-weather dresses I own. Here's an example of one that I wore today for a very hot 91-degree F day in the midst of our annual heat wave in Seattle. I even brought out my wide-brimmed hat, which I think of as portable shade.

The outfit: t-shirt dress with fashion print in black and white (made by me); taupe and white sandals (P. Monjo); taupe cross-body bag (Brahmin), and cream and black woven hat with black band (Walleroo, Josie).

Thanks for looking! I welcome any thoughts.

    Stunning summer outfit. I need a tee shirt dress like that!. Shoes, hat and bag are great finishers.

    Thanks everyone!
    Karen13, this outfit went to the dentist! And hosted family for dinner, but I didn't wear the hat indoors for that. Or carry the bag, for that matter.
    Shevia, thank you. I'm so NOT a hat person. I've finally found a few that I like to wear in recent years.

    I feel like hats go a long way towards bringing any summer dress up a notch, but this dress doesn't even need it. Great hot weather outfit!

    You have such a great sense of your own style. I love the way you dress and this outfit is no exception! I can't believe you made that dress--wow.

  • Firecracker replied 2 weeks ago

    Thank you so much, everyone.
    Lisap, I've missed hanging around the forum. I've been busy with other things--bicycling, mostly! Which is a lot of fun, too.
    Jenn, you are an inspiration with hats. You wear yours so well.
    Jill, what a sweet thing to say!

    Chic and arty!  I love the length of the sleeves.  It's so hard to find this length anywhere!

    Beautiful, this dress is wonderful.

  • Opaline replied 2 weeks ago

    Your handiwork is wonderful, the dress is so charming & the outfit is perfect on you.

  • Berkeley Girl replied 2 weeks ago

    Oh, it’s great. Charming is the perfect word, the whole outfit is so charming and summer-y. It’s a very put-together look without looking overly “done.” I love the sandals.
