August. The heat can be a killer. The humidity can too. The sun comes beating down. There seems to be no respite from it whatsoever. Even those at the beach or poolside can only find true comfort in the water. For many there's the respite of air conditioning in our homes and in our offices. But many of us still must face the heat whether we're running errands, to and from appointments and meetings or just need to be out and about. The heat can assault. Humidity can too and is often worse than the heat. It is during these relentless Dog Days of Summer that we need to dress as much for comfort as we do for style. We need clothes that are cool, lightweight, stylish and flattering. For office or perhaps dinner, nothing beats a little white dress for chic and casual sophistication. Flowy, gauzy dresses are great for outdoors and those who work in a more casual office setting, as are white jeans and white pants with a loose, yet fitted white top - paired off with a belt and pretty sandals for more casual or heels for a dressier look.
While black is always stylish and always chic and always sophisticated, it can be downright unbearable on a hot day. White has a crisp and fresh look to it always. And yes, everyone can wear white - when in doubt add color with accessories.
I may venture to say that this summer, white is the new black!

Summer wishing and dreaming ... Oh to be back in Newport sipping a glass of rosé at @castlehillinn overlooking the bay. 📸 by Yours Truly for @yankeemagazine’s NewEngland.com “An Insider’s Guide to Newport.”
Mad about this stunning @devolkitchens! Just everything about it!!
Mindful Monday... let’s do this!
Drooling in memory is of this fantastic smoked salmon and avocado deliciousness from the @beaconhillhotel ... the way to my heart is definitely through my stomach 😂
Dear Boston, you’ve been such a great host and our time here was much too short. So much beauty, so much deliciousness... but we might miss our mornings at @tattebakery most of all!
Ahhh, the unrivaled beauty of the @gardnermuseum!
Good morning Boston! As I sit in this stunning lobby I have a hard time believing this was once an operational high security prison.... This morning I watch as young families make their way out and lots of brightly colored running shoes, parkas and sweatshirts mill around, as they ready themselves for Monday’s #bostonmarathon #bostonstrong
Good morning Boston and Happy Friday! We’re staying at the @liberty_hotel which was, until 1990 a federal prison that was shut down by the state because conditions were so horrid. In 2007, after extensive renovations the former prison became a boutique hotel. The lobby is stunning and I love that they have kept that jailhouse vibe. Plus for pooch owners who don’t want to leave their furry friends behind, this is one of the few luxury hotels that warmly welcomes pets!
Just one more day... we can do this!! C’mon Thursday!
When this pops up on your Facebook timeline you start to feel really old! Where has the time gone? 😭 #hellalwaysbemybaby
