The White Stripes

In reality I think this is actually a white dress with black stripes. What do you think? Well one thing I know (and you may too) is that I'm not a summer heat person. Fall is my EVERYTHING and getting dressed for 90 degree temperatures is a huge struggle for me.

Pittsburgh has had some brutally hot days lately and I just wanted to wear something that felt as loose and breezy as possible. This lightweight stripey dress from H&M is often what I reach for on days like those. It's super cute and comfortable while also keeping me cool, which is most important.

I usually like to accessorize with a skinny brown belt, my brown woven purse, and my straw hat. On this day I opted for a top knot to keep my hair off my shoulders and kept the accessories at a minimum.

Unfortunately this dress is a couple years old, so I couldn't find the exact one. I did link a few black and white striped dresses below in case you're looking for a something similar to sport this summer. What are your favorite types of outfits for extremely hot days?
