Warm weather chic

Now that the weather is warming I am constantly on the lookout for easy summer dressing options. I live in jersey crops/shorts/skirts, tank tops, and flip-flops when not at work, but what to do about my more public appearance? I tend to fall to dresses and skirts in breezy fabrics when the Virginia humidity starts to soar. My new love is a great linen crinkle dress from Boden. My parents had given me a gift certificate for my birthday back in March and I tried to pick selections that would be useful for work and play.

Just wore this dress to work yesterday (with 90+ degree temperature and sweltering humidity) and am definitely in love.

Cute! My problem is that the A/C always makes me too cold to wear cute dresses. I need to wear layers. Well, except for when I was pregnant. Warmest winter I've ever had was this past one!

This dress is so cute. I don't understand how the sizing works?

It's a UK company, so you can find your size by converting: (http://www.bodenusa.com/en-US/help/fit-and-style-guides/size-charts/womens-fit-and-size-charts.html).

I loved the fabric - a heavy linen, almost like a burlap (but not scratchy). I love Boden clothes - especially because you don't see everyone and their mother wearing them!
