Now, back to the heat….When the heat index goes way over 100 degrees and the air becomes very thick, then San Antonio career women relax just a bit.  This type of loose fitting, flowy dress, which normally would be on casual Friday, becomes a regular occurrence…and suit jackets become the exception rather than the rule.

I confess on days when I have meetings with clients or presentations, I am going to go up a notch from a comfy tunic.  On those days, I might wear a summer jacket with closed toe flats instead of sandals.  But there are many days in July and August when the outfit pictured is work wear rather than weekend wear.  

Normally, I completely avoid horizontal stripes on any top, but the cut of this one worked for a more flattering fit.  I found this one on sale at Dillards.  I also found some for your consideration below.

Just know that in some places…I realize not all…you can go for a lighter fare during the hot summer months.  But, follow your office protocol and watch what others are doing.  In South Texas, this is what you will see a majority of women doing…along with dresses and skirts to keep the legs cool!

What is your best plan for tackling the heat with your work style?

Keep Smiling!!
