One of my favorite things to wear on casual summer days, is a loose fitting tunic with shorts. This type of outfit is great for active days with the kids; and anytime I have to do a lot of walking! This tunic from JCrew is actually classified as a “swimsuit cover-up,” but, it also works well as a tunic over shorts, a denim skirt, or jeans! It would also look amazing with white jeans; unfortunately I don’t own white jeans because I can never keep them white!

Tunics are great on hot days because they have, shall we say, a natural air conditioner?! The loose fabric allows air flow which helps keeps me cool on hot days. This is fabulous during July and August when temperatures fluctuate between 80 and 100 degrees. This is another reason I love casual dresses on hot days, although, there are many occasions when shorts are much more comfortable!

What are your go-to pieces on hot summer, casual days?
