A Maxi & a Fedora on a Hot Summer's Day

Green maxi - Bourdeaux Los Angeles (TJ Maxx)
White Tank - The Limited
Fedora - Target

I was just about to begin my hair-washing routine today, when my husband suggested we go to lunch.  Ugh. 

Agreeing to go, I was faced with the dilemma of quickly having to go from really-not-feeling-it to being date-ready-on-a-triple-digit-temperature-summer-afternoon-while-having-a-bad-hair-day.   So, how does one do that?  Here was my solution...

First, throw on a cute summer dress or maxi, and anyone can go from zero to cute in a matter of minutes.

Then, add a fedora, and you can go from cute to cool in a matter of seconds.

Lastly, step outside into the Houston heat and humidity, nice and ready for your date, and you'll go from cool to hot-as-hell (literally) in less than a fraction of a second (again, literally).  Then, enjoy your lunch while recuperating from your dissolution into a liquid state of matter.

And that's how it's done.

Hope y'all are staying cool!  ;)


  1. Hi Kish! I love your maxi dress and am loving your fedora and the necklace is like the perfect necklace for your dress! I need a fedora or two and am kind of looking for my perfect ones still! :) Hope you are having a good week dear! xx Pip


  2. That's a fantastic idea to layer a white tank under a strappy maxi to create a casual day look that isn't too bare. I need to try that!

  3. So cool and relaxing... Loving the color! U can never go wrong with a MAXI!

    BTW, I did get your email but somehow it got lost in the mix of things. But my books arrive yesterday. I haven't started reading them as of yet. Hopefully, I can get a kick start on the 1st one this weekend! :-)

  4. Yup, I'd say a maxi and a fedora is a great combo for looking chic in a flash!!
