If You Hate Wearing Shorts, Try Day Dresses

Day Dresses

Day Dresses for summer – they’re a thing and if you hate wearing shorts as much as we do, you need to know about them. It is hard to imagine, because ummm, spring JUST sprung, like last week (FINALLY). But, summer really is right around the corner. And pretty soon we will all be complaining about how hot and sticky it is outside. More importantly, when it’s 85 degrees and 120 percent humidity outside and you’d rather sweat yourself to death than put on shorts, what’s a girl to wear? The answer is a day dress.

Shorts? Yes or no?

If you like wearing shorts, more power to you girl! Wear them and rock them – literally no judgment (maybe a wee bit of jealousy, but 100% no judgement). But it seems we are not alone in our trepidation about shorts season. We’ve received quite a few text messages and emails about what to wear in place of shorts due to, and we quote, “dropping knees, varicose veins, cellulite, pasty legs, swollen ankles” and a plethora of other leg related issues.

For many the shorts issue is a self conscious thing. Too short and you feel super self conscious, or too long and you feel like a granny. And that feeling of sitting down  and having them ride up your thighs so your butt cheek sticks to the metal bench – that’s enough to put anyone over the edge .

Day Dress = Your Jeans for the Summer

The summer day dress is the perfect option. They are easy, breezy, one and done. These aren’t occasion dresses. They are dresses that you wake up on an 80 degree day and throw on with a summer sandal or flip flop. These are dresses you bring on vacation with you because you can wear it with sneakers to tour around all day. 

These are dresses you can wear to the beach and then to lunch. Shopping or a kids birthday party. Maybe even to an amusement park. Think of these dresses as your jeans for the summer – something you can throw on and go. Ideally, the best ones are those you can dress up or down. Meaning you can wear them with a flip flop during the day and a heel at night and feel equally put together.

What to Wear on Go RED for Women Day

Wear RED This Friday
The color RED.  It makes us think of love… Red roses, red hearts, Valentines Day – it’s like the poster child color for the month of February. It’s also THE color to wear this Friday, February 2 to show support for the American Heart Association. Why? Because this Friday is GRFW Day (Go Red For Women). The American Heart Association is encouraging people to wear RED to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and to help save lives. By wearing RED you can join in the fight against heart disease and stroke. It’s a little something you can do to show support, because when we come together, there’s nothing we can’t do.

Picture it – a whole sea of people, nation wide, wearing RED – it’s powerful and it’s pretty – just like women.
Chances are you know someone affected by heart disease and stroke, because about 2200 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day. That’s in average of one death every forty seconds. Cardiovascular diseases, which includes stroke, claim the lives of about one woman every 80 seconds unnecessarily — because about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be preventable with education and action. Raise awareness and fund the fight against cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Got RED?!?
If your closet is like most peoples, it’s probably somewhat void of color. That’s ok. No judgement here. But, if you want to show your support for heart health by wearing RED, you may need to buy something. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered… (btw, it’s Hallie writing this week). I scoured the Macy’s website and picked out some fabulous red pieces if you’re on the hunt for something RED, everything is under $250 and most are under $100  – so it’s as easy as 1, 2, click and support.
