The thermometer is expected to hit 96 degrees today! On days like this, it’s hard to think about looking stylish for work – I feel like I’m simply wilting!

So, when the temperature skyrockets, I reach for a dress. Why? A dress is so easy. No matching. No fussing. A great body skimmer like the two-tone piece I’ve chosen for today makes life simple and hopefully, just a little cooler.

I also keep accessories to a bare minimum. No scarves (too hot). No bangles (too hot). Not even any of my trademark dangly earrings (too… okay, you get it!). Nope. Today, it’s all about the shoes!

Stay cool everyone!
