Q. When it gets too hot out to wear jeans, Casual Friday becomes the toughest day of the week to get dressed! Do you have any fashionable ideas for me? Thanks!

A lightweight jersey dress or shirtdress is an easy piece to throw on in the morning, and if your office allows, longer length sleek shorts are also a great option. For accessories, always have a lightweight scarf or thin cardigan on hand should the air conditioning kick into overdrive. Here are some looks for inspiration:
