There is no better time of the year to sport dresses on a daily basis than Summer.  This wardrobe basic is a sure fired way to keep cool.  In addition, here are a few tips for beating the heat: Stay away from silks, they tend to stick to you and show sweat.  Instead choose light, breathable fabrics like cotton, linen & rayon.

Floaty, breezy, and loose pieces are key in 90 plus degees.   Whites and bright-colored clothing will give you a feeling of coolness because they reflect the light and make your skin glow.

Here is a selection to temp you from Camille in Forest Park.  Graphic prints & stripes are a great combo, from Lan Vie on sale for $67.  A strong silluette for the season: the Maxi dress - gorgeous in teal; a color that looks good on everybody, this one from Kiki is only $63.  I love the eye popping magenta cocktail dress from Ya, a steal for $27.

Get over to Camille Et Famille this Friday for the Forest Park sidewalk sale and save big on dress essentials for special occasions and everyday.
