WIW to prevent melting in 100 degree heat

My weather reality is pretty grim this week. We're going from a low of 93 to a high of 102. Here come all of my summer OTG dresses I bought just for this purpose.

1) Rodarte for Target dress. I feel like I need long hair and 3 hole dm's to make this dress work. As I have neither, I tried to toughen it up with my husband's belt looped around.

2) Thrifted Kors blouse and dark wash denim pencil skirt. The nice thing about this silk blouse is that it is so light, it barely touches my body when I'm wearing it.

3) Another Target dress - I usually like this dress with a cardi, but that just wasn't happening today. Hope the cap sleeves and short length aren't too offensive here.

I haven't melted yet. Only 2 months of this to go. Wish me luck surviving the heat wave!

WIW 80's fever pink

I'm loving my fever pink skirt. I'm so glad I sent back the other defective one. I wasn't planning to post this WIW. My husband must have mentioned like 5 times how much he liked this outfit so I thought it deserved an honorable mention. YLF comments and suggestions always welcomed!

Target Chambray shirt

WIW 7/12-7/14, Dressy week

Hi all! I realized it's dressy dress week for me. My style is varying a lot but I feel like I'm starting to figure out how to emphasize my best parts. While I may not have a cohesive style statement like many others here, I definitely have dressing goals. I want to make curves where I don't have much. How am I doing?

1) AT dress, Sofft Pavia's. This is my summer "important" work day dress. I need to look polished, authoritative and approachable here.

2) Kids Target denim vest, vintage silk midi. The vest got some mixed reviews, but Angie gave it a thumbs up so I decided to give it a whirl. I liked this new way to wear my midi. It feels more fun and natural for me than wearing a cardigan. It felt very 70's. My coworker said, "You actually look good today" like she was surprised that all these pieces worked together. Talk about a cutting compliment!

3) Calypso St. Barth's for Target dress, DV golden gladiators, hubby's braided belt. Any suggestions for another type of belt? This feels dark but I'm not having any other bright ideas at the moment.

Feedback and suggestions always welcome! Thanks for looking and have a great day!
