This is my third summer living in Las Vegas. I’d like to think that I’m getting used to the hot summers, but there is always some point in the summer, usually right around mid-July, that I get so sick of the heat. I can handle the dry hot days of 105 degrees no problem, but when we get our first blast of humidity at the beginning of the monsoon season, that’s when I want to get in my car and drive to the coolest destination I can find. Luckily next week I’ll be escaping to the beaches of California for a week, but I know that the hot humid days will be waiting for me when I get back.
When I talk about a humid day in the desert, I’m talking about only 20% humidity, which is really nothing compared to a Midwest summer day, but it’s the heat that makes it so much worse. I find it nearly impossible to get dressed with it hot and humid. The easiest way for me to dress in the heat is in comfortable flowy dresses. Anything that is loose-fitting is perfect.
This post is part of a collaboration with PinkBlush. As always my opinions are 100% my own.
This navy blue ruffled bottom dress from PinkBlush is the perfect solution to dressing comfortably in the heat. I love how flowy and lose it fits. The back has a very cute lace-up crisscross tie on it, which I think gives it the perfect amount of detail. I wore this dress last weekend while we hung out with my brother and sister-in-law, exploring some spots here in Las Vegas. It was super hot, humid and cloudy that day. Jack was acting up because he was tired, out of sorts and probably hot. I think I would have been in a horrible mood if I wasn’t wearing this dress, but I ended up having a nice time with my family because I felt comfortable and cute in my outfit.
