Dear Mommie,

This is my first summer living in the desert, and oh my goodness, I clearly need a new summer wardrobe. The heat is no joke! Any tips on good basics to beat the heat? And what about those caftans I keep seeing by the pool? Worth the investment?

Mommie always says to express your inner femininity so if wearing a caftan allows that for you, Mommie says go for it! One little tip – wear nothing underneath! You accomplish so many things – you remain cool, stylish and a touch of fabulous just like Mommie!!! Dare to be different.
