It is time to lighten up…my style and my attitude toward summer! I am born and raised Texan and still not a fan of the heat.  However, I know many people who love it…moved here for it…and prefer the heat to anything else.  I thought about them last Saturday as I sat at a backyard picnic with sweat running down my back…and I even dressed with light fabrics because the forecast was for a heat index of 105.

Readers know I traditionally dress in saturated colors like this and that I love to wear black!

Just to be different…I am attempting this summer to lighten up more.

Today, I selected my light gray Eileen Fisher pants, a white tunic, and added some “summer” colors in accessories.  I liked it and this is something I can do often.  I am not a fan of pastels (for me), but lighter neutrals with purposeful accessories is something I can do.

I actually grabbed this scarf recently while walking through Chicos…everything is 40% off  at the moment.

Everything.

Two of my goals right now are to lighten up a bit more this year and to make friends with summer.  I am a July lady, after all, so I should find a way to like it,  

How do you lighten up your style in the summertime….

Here are some similar selections for your consideration…

Despite the sweat…Keep Smiling!
