My Favorite Summer Outfits ( Since it is Still 90 degrees)


Happy Friday all!

I know, the middle of Sept should allow me to take out some light sweaters, perhaps a moto jacket, but not here in Charlotte, NC. It is still 90 degrees with a few days dipping to mid-80s. ย By now, I am ready for Fall, the change of seasons and cooler air. Had some fun things happen this week, with the air conditioning in our car breaking down, and getting stung by a bee ( im allergic) while sitting on the deck working on the blog. My hubby is a handiman though, and was able to replace the fan and fix the air in about an hour! So, that was much better.

The above look is from LOFT, and nothing says ease of summer, like a maxi dress. This beautiful sea green dress caught my eye and the jewelry I received as a birthday gift. The colorful metal floral necklace, I would be able to wear with so much.


What I like about this dress is the color. Just because it is summer, doesn’t mean one can’t wear purple shades, like this burgundy. it might even get you in the mindset for Fall! Hmm. do the colors Burgundy, Merlot, Port.. remind you of anything ? ๐Ÿ™‚


I love this print with its soft olive and peach tones from ZARA. Shirtdresses are big this year and they are just so easy and comfortable to wear!


Another color ( RUST)ย or POTTER”S CLAY, as the Pantone’s Insititute has named it,that is BIG for Fall, it is seen on the Runways for FW and this dress can transform into Fall with some small changes.


This look is more of a transition to Fall look. If I take off the jacket, I love an all white look with some tan/brown accessories. Nothing says summer like white.

Anyhow, as much as I want to wear Fall Fashions, I wanted to share some of my favorite summer outfits before the change in Season does take place.

So, in the meantime, I try and style looks that transition to Fall, waiting a month or more, for the actual weather to hit. Which outfit is your favorite?ย 

What are you looking forward to wearing? If you are a blogger in warmer climates, do you find it difficult to wear Fall clothes right now? Let me know in the comments.ย

      Hi Mica! Thanks very much! I have to transition my closet to fall, but the weather isnt there yet. Glad you liked my round up. Thanks very much, it took about 5 days for the swelling and itching to subside! Enjoy the week! xx

    Great outfits, Jess. I especially like the floral shirt dress and the all white with the brown jacket. With the heat in your area you need to still think summer, but I like how you brought in the fall colors. Great post. Thanks for sharing. – Amy

      Hi Amy! Thanks very much. I know, it will be in the low 80s soon, but still pretty warm for this time of year. Have to work with color! Have a great week. xx

    Hello love, here in northern Italy it’s getting colder, so I’m still wearing summer clothes with some layers when needed ๐Ÿ™‚ you look equally fantastic in all of these looks. You know I love your style, I find each of your outfits impeccable. Sorry for missing a few Turning Heads Tuesday-s, I’m a little swamped but I’ll try to stop by more often! Tons of love dear!

    I find the brown jacket, white outfit very stunning. I am not normally a brown fan, but I could see me modifying this outfit to work with my style. Thanks for the inspiration.

    It has been painfully hot here too, until just yesterday when we got a nice cold snap. I can’t wait to dig out sweaters and boots and coats and scarves and hats! I have to say though, you REALLY suit a summer dress. That burgundy one is my favourite, and looks just amazing with your figure. Have a super weekend, sweet Jess. xx

      Hi Lisa, Yes it seems it will be this way for another week or so. I love the mornings when it is nice and cool out on my deck, where I sit. Thank you for the lovely comment, you too! Enjoy the weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    90 degrees????!!!!!!!!

    (I feel sweaty just thinking about it)

    Luckily, you are stunning in a summer dress Jess!
    That red dress, with the ruffle, looks incredible.
    I love this round up… thank you!

      Haha! I know! It will cool down soon to 80. I have to wear fall by color until the weather cooperates. Thanks for stopping by! Glad you enjoyed the looks.
      Have a great weekend Sam! xx

      Thank you! It is one of my favorites and I can wear it in the fall with boots. I appreciate your comment. x

    It’s definitely gotten cooler here in the mornings and evenings—it’s almost like I need two (or 3) different outfits for the day—ha ha–I can do that easily!
    The maxis you’ve shown are so stunning—it’s amazing how a long dress can be so cool in the summer—so much better than pants!!
    Happy Weekend and no more bees!!

      I get what you are saying. I woke up early today and it was cooler, still supposed to be 90 this weekend. I am so ready for the low 80s or 70s. I never was big on maxi dresses until a few years ago, and they are so comfortable. I don’t understand how people can wear jeans when it is this hot. I am not a fan of clothes sticking to me! right? Thanks Jodie! It took about 5 days for the swelling to go down, bee allergies are no fun, and I didnt even provoke it! xx
