I am a long time customer of Columbia clothing for women, I wear the omni-freeze long sleeve shirts with roll-up sleeves and the sport dresses. I also wear Columbia for women shorts and pants when I am active, in the yard gardening or hiking on nature trails. Columbia makes classic clothing for women that is high quality. You always look good in a Columbia for women outfit and feel a whole lot cooler thanks to the Omni-Freeze technology.the more you sweat the cooler you feel.
Here is a fashion set that I created at polyvore. It shows the dress that I speak of along with a variety of accessories that I created at my zazzle.com store.
Last week while shopping online I found a Columbia summer dress that I thought would be perfect for an outdoor BBQ. I knew that the weather for that day was going to be hot and humid.
I love this Omni-Freeze Columbia summer dress because it is perfect for all outdoor events. The BBQ that I was invited to will be hot and humid since it is by the river. Not only will this dress keep me feeling cooler it will also protect me from harmful sun rays. The fabric on this dress had sunscreen protection plus it was said to keep me cooler.
Quote from the manufacturer “dress features UPF 50 UV protection and advanced cooling technology to keep you comfortable in the hot sun. “
Pro's and a Con
Know that I am 5'8 and weigh 139, normally I wear a size 8 dress and the medium in this dress fit me perfectly.
I like that the length of this dress was not too short, came about 2 inches above my knee. The fabric is silky soft and overall the dress was perfect for what I needed.
This dress has pockets but anything that goes in the pockets can be seen. So I brought along a wristlet bag and the dress outfit was perfect for the summer BBQ.
Here is a bag that would look nice with blue floral dress.
