3 Weekend Outfits for When It’s Just Too Hot for Jeans



1– 2– 3– 4– 5– 6– 7

Summer is officially in full swing and your social life isn’t the only thing on fire. With some serious make-up-melting triple digit temps on the horizon, it looks like you may need to make a few wardrobe adjustments to enjoy your fun in the sun without breaking (too much of) a sweat. Check out our suggestions for a few summer outfits guaranteed to cool you off while heating up your weekend when it’s just too hot for jeans. 

The Two Piece Set

Give those well-loved short shorts a break this weekend and slip into something a little more comfortable – and flirty – by the way of a fun and sassy two piece set. Take advantage of those ocean breezes and strut your stuff on the boardwalk in a knee length skirt and V-neck crop top set. Want to take this adorable look from casual day to sexy night? No problem. Just switch out those flip flops for a pair of strappy sandals and some statement jewelry and you’ll be ready to sip fruity cocktails by moonlight faster than you can say summer romance.  

The Romper

We know you’d rather be spending every free moment poolside but, alas, you are still fiercely popular and your summer calendar is jam packed with weekend obligations. Have no fear, the romper is here to help make all of those summer showers, sprinkles and garden parties a little less stuffy and a little more easy breezy (though a generous pour of champagne couldn’t hurt). Spend your afternoon schmoozing in style in a classy yet comfortable striped romper sure to make every guest green with envy. Accessorize your look with a fun summer worthy handbag and platform wedges and we guarantee you’ll make a splash at any event. Not bad for a day spent away from the pool. 

Casual Dresses

You may be the queen of multi-tasking but even royalty deserves a weekend off every now and then. Take advantage of the lazy days of summer and treat yo’self to a completely agenda-less weekend. We promise you’ll love rolling out of bed and slipping in to a trendy and tropical two piece set or comfy casual dress fit for some ultimate up-for-anything maxing and relaxing. Have fun owning the spotlight and throw some serious shade to your adoring public with your quay Australia sunglasses as you gallivant around town doing absolutely nothing specific – and loving every minute of it. 


Whatever scorching surprises summer has in store, Red Dress Boutique is here to help you keep cool without losing an ounce of that smoking hot style you’re known for. So go ahead and give your jeans a break from the heat. We’ve got what you need to keep things sizzling this season.

Back on Track: Self Care, Not Self Indulgence

August 27, 2018

Sometimes, you just need to talk things out with a friend over cocktails to make you see things in your own life more clearly, right?  That's what happened while I was out with Betsy on Saturday.  1 coffee, 1 museum, 1 lunch, 2 rooftops, 2 cocktails, 2 train rides, 3 water taxis, and 7 miles walked later, it occurred to me that I haven't been doing exactly what I intended when this year started.  In fact, I got pretty far off track.  (If you don't remember, my word of the year was 'healthy,' I'm supposed to not be shopping, and I was planning on blogging way more often.)  It wasn't that I planned to chat about any of this in particular, and we definitely didn't sit around talking about all the ways we had failed our goals (she's struggling on some fronts too, but that's her own post to share.)  But I started thinking about it when I got home, based on things I had said throughout the day.  And things I did.

Sephora VIB Sale Recommendation

August 24, 2018

Did you know the Sephora fall sale starts today?  Usually it's much later in the season but for VIB Rouge members, it starts today, and next week for everyone else.  Of course there's now a million articles telling you what to buy in terms of makeup and skincare, since they're only on sale at Sephora twice a year (lol 'only.'  As if you use up anything in 6 months.)  And while I love my skincare and makeup items and certainly have favorites I could share with you, I really just have one main recommendation when it comes to this sale: don't.

Lies We Tell Ourselves About Clutter

August 22, 2018

This past weekend, I was finally able to go through and film a home tour on Instagram stories.  (I highlighted it if you missed it, just go to my profile and click 'Home.')  I had been meaning to do it since this past May marked 2 years since we moved in and I like documenting the changes, but it just never happened.  And then I did the Mins Game challenge and decluttered over 450 items from our house.  Since I'm already a minimalist, people wanted to see what I even had left when I was done, so that's what I did on Saturday.  In the tour, I even open all cabinets and drawers so you can see what's inside.  I still have things I'd like to declutter and organize, that's just how I am.  But I really don't think I'd have enough for another round of the Mins Game, and that makes me happy. 

Fall Movie Challenge

August 20, 2018

Taking two weeks totally off from blogging feels fantastic, I have to say.  I was going to take the whole month off but alas, here I am.  Because I wanted to post my fall film challenge list.  You might be familiar with it, since I've participated before.

Swagbucks Update

August 4, 2018

It's that time of the year again - Swagbucks is holding a Back to School Team Challenge to help you earn free gift cards. For those of you who don't know what Swagbucks is, it's a website where you can earn cash back on everyday tasks you do online like shopping, answering surveys, discovering deals, and watching videos. You can even earn for searching the web.

If you've never tried Swagbucks before because you didn't know where to begin, their Team Challenges are a great way to learn the ropes and earn points towards free gift cards and PayPal cash. The challenge runs from Monday, August 6th to Friday, August 10th. This is the ideal time to really start earning extra money for Christmas

Here's how you can join the challenge and the site:

1. Click here to join the challenge and be assigned to a team.

2. In addition to earning SB, you'll contribute to your team's total as you complete different activities on Swagbucks.

3. Check back on the page often to see the scores and what you've contribute so far.

All members who participate and contribute at least 600 points to their team’s total will receive a SB bonus in the form of a SB Swag Up Shop Bonus on their next gift card.

Not only that, but if you sign up under me this month and earn 300 SB before September 1st, you'll get a 300 SB bonus.

Members of the 1st place team will receive a 100 SB Swag Up Rebate, members of the 2nd place team will receive a 50 SB Swag Up Rebate.

Also note that all throughout August you can earn large bonuses when sign up as my referral on Swagbucks.  I use it all year round but there's more earning opportunities as we approach the holiday season, so it's such a good way to earn points for Christmas gifts.  You take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Target, or PayPal cash. When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a 300 SB bonus.

Here's how: 


2. Earn 300 SB total before September 1st, 2018. You'll get a 300 SB bonus for it.

3. That's it. It's super easy, and I end up not spending out of pocket for the Christmas season.  Everyone wins.

Drifting

August 1, 2018

I've been drifting very aimlessly lately.  Not so much in life (it's hard to drift totally aimless when you have a 8 to 5 job in an actual career) but in terms of what the heck to blog about and post to social media.  Simplifying everything has been great in terms of how I feel about things, both online and off, but of course the trade off is that there's way less going on to blog about.  I mean, I have a billion things to blog about related to Christmas, but we aren't there yet.  (Or are we?  Doesn't it just appear before you know it?)  August is a quiet month as it is, but I still feel a lack of inspiration when it comes to writing.  Partially because I have no idea what anyone would be interested in reading.
