The Ageless Style Link Up- The first Monday of every month a group of over forty fashion bloggers pick a monthly theme and show different ways of styling it.
Welcome ladies to another Ageless Style Link Up. This month's theme "The Heat Is On" was chosen by Debbie. Debbie said "Do with it what you will...enjoy!" so I decided to feature an outfit that I wore on a hot day visiting friends: A day I really did "enjoy!".
Now if this outfit looks familiar to you, it's because it is! I've shown it to you before HERE and HERE. You will be seeing lots of my clothes on repeat, because I am just not buying new clothes during Covid...no matter how good the deals are. I did buy a few pair of shoes, but that is all I've purchased the past five months. Fashion just seems an unnecessary luxury during these trying times.
Now we've been having a lot of hot weather in Wisconsin this summer which is quite unusual for us. When the weather gets warm, I like to wear lightweight clothes with the least material possible but still stay modestly dressed. Skirts are my go-to item all summer long. I wear shorts at home, but rarely wear them outside the house. I prefer skirts or skorts to shorts anytime, and I enjoy off-the-shoulder tops like this one for keeping cool.
I also prefer comfortable sandals over sneakers or shoes. They are so much more cooling than shoes that cover the entire foot. I also have issues with my feet swelling on super hot/humid days, and sandals are more suitable footwear for that problem.
Now if you're wondering where all these beautiful photos have been taken and who these adorable pet animals are, they are all my dear friends. She has lots of sun on her property, so she has the most beautiful flower gardens. I am a lover of animals, especially cats, and I just went ga-ga over their kitten. They also have two dogs, both of whom are as sweet as can be.
I will close this post with more pictures of my friend's beautiful garden. Enjoy!
And now, be sure to check out the other ladies of Ageless Style and see how they interpreted the theme "The Heat Is On".
Have A Great Day! Amy

Your top is so pretty, Amy. I like that it's off the shoulder, but with straps. Good for you for not buying anything. Unfortunately, I see "potential" in too many items, so have been buying!ReplyDelete
Thanks Kim! Yes, I love the straps too. I'm not tugging my top back up all the time.Delete
What a perfect summer outfit! Loving this top on you! Your friend's garden looks beautiful and such cute animals too! I'm trying to make my backyard prettier, should have done it years ago but it's never too late and I've been taking advantage of all types of reduced plants I found at Lowes' garden center. I go back at least once a week to see what I can find :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you! Yes, she has a beautiful yard with such a scenic view. My yard is so blocked in with trees and forests. But you're right, it's never too late. You are so young Ellie, start a garden! It only takes 3 years for a perennial garden to mature.Delete
You look wonderful!ReplyDelete
Wow! What beautiful gardens and I just love that top.ReplyDelete
It certainly is! Thanks so much.Delete
What a beautiful kitty and I love all of these gorgeous flowers and just how they're arranged. I'm sure it is a lot of work, but man it is beautiful. I haven't been shopping as much either! :(ReplyDelete
Isn't she the sweetest? Yes, Sandy did a beautiful job. It is a lot of work, but so worth it.Delete
I'm all about the sandals in our heat too Amy. And what a gorgeous garden, and that kitty is adorable.ReplyDelete
I only wish I could say I haven't bought anything. I'm so weak...
Yes, I love the sandals you wore in. your post. As for shopping, there are so many deals out there right now, it is hard to resist. I've given in on the shoes!Delete
I love the top, Amy! I wear skirts & sundresses often in the summer because they are so much cooler.ReplyDelete
Thank you. Yes, I agree, they are so much cooler.Delete
Love this summer look- and the beautiful flowers and photos!ReplyDelete
thank you so much!Delete
I love this outfit: I have definitely been wearing my skirts and dresses a lot more this summer and sandals are always a favorite. I typically wear flat ones as they are more comfortable!ReplyDelete
Thank you! Yes, I like the look of heels but not the feel of heels, so I'm wearing more flats lately too.Delete
You look great. Sweet kitty and even more adorable dog 🤩ReplyDelete
thank you! They are all such sweet pets.Delete
You and your friend have such skill in gardening! Her garden is stunning and you are beautiful in your outfit! I adore that top!ReplyDelete
Thank you. It's wonderful having a friend with similar interests. We bounce ideas off of each other all the time.Delete
Looking so very nice.ReplyDelete
I agree, the heat is on! I've worn a lot of dresses lately to help beat the heat. However, when I wear shorts is nice to have a top with extra interest to jazz up the look, right? Your top fits the bill and more so!ReplyDelete
Thanks Chrissy! You have to deal with a lot more heat and humidity than I do.Delete
Perfect outfit for keeping cool! The gardens are very pretty as is the kitty. Thanks for linking up at #WowOnWednesday.ReplyDelete
