This Dress Is The Next Best Thing To Being Naked In This Heat

Soft, breathable, lightweight - my prayers have been answered

Sweating? Us too.

Show of hands, who else is warm - like really warm? In fact, I don't think I've ever been as hot as I am in this very moment. And yes, before you start - I am brutally aware of the irony of spending the entirety of winter moaning about the cold, but this is getting out of hand. 

When it comes to getting dressed in what feels like 90 degree weather, it's a game of fguring out how to leave the house with the least amount of fabric touching your skin. Enter linen dresses. 

Once the backbone of home furnishings and your mother's holiday wardrobe, linen is expereincing a resurgence this season in the form of easy, breezy, looks-good-on-everyone dresses. 

What's more, that thing about linen looking bad with wrinkles? Yeah, that's a myth. Linen actually looks good creased, so you don't have to fumble with a hot iron when it's equally as hot outside. 

That's why this week I'm letting you in on this discovery of wardrobe solutions to allow you to get on with your life, despite the heat.
