I understand in New York City this week designers are busy showing off thier Spring and Summer 2008 fashions. Just last Sunday I wore the first wool skirt of my 2007 Fall season. It got me to thinking though.
I grew up in Michigan and Wisconsin. Summer was pretty much 2 weeks of shorts and tennis shoes, with a sweatshirt kept handy. I’ve moved to Missouri and I’d really like to get used to the Summer weather here. So maybe I should take a lesson form those folks in NYC and start to think about next Summer NOW!
For all of you ladies of the South, here is my question: How do you manage to dress to remain cool and ladylike, in opressive heat and humidity?
You have read my posts before as I’ve written about my intention to stop looking like a ragamuffin THIS YEAR. That means Summer too………
So I’d appreciate a few wardrobe suggestions for neatness and appropriateness, in Summer, at home, at work, at the neighbors, with the family, with friends, for a picnic, shopping, travel, and that all important July wedding in the UNair-conditioned church.
