If I can be perfectly honest here, I’ve never been one of those people who is comfortable baring a lot of skin, even in the heat. Unless I’m by the pool or at the beach. (And often, a lightweight layer between the sun’s rays and my skin actually feels cooler.)

When so much of what’s on offer during the warmer months consists of tank tops, shorts and sleeveless dresses, summer style can be particularly challenging.

Which is one of the reasons I love breezy linen and cotton pieces. I picked up these linen lantern pants earlier this year. I’m wearing the Petite Small.

The top is new, made from a lovely gauzy cotton knit fabric. It’s available in Misses and Plus sizes. It’s a bit long on me so I’ve done a half-tuck in the front. It runs a little large, I think; I’m wearing the XS. (I’ll grant that this might still be too warm for those of you dealing with high heat and humidity, but in our relatively dry climate, it’s perfect.)

A hat that breathes and keeps the sun off can also help you stay cooler. Finding hats has also been a challenge for me, as I have a very small head. So I was really happy to discover recently that Wallaroo Hats offers a Petite collection! I’m wearing the Petite Catalina.

And when it’s very warm, I like to keep my jewelry light and minimal. This graceful brushed gold bracelet was kindly gifted from Dean Davison jewelry. They have generously offered my readers 25% off with code SUSAN25. If you love simple, elegant, and bold jewelry, do go take a look.
