What to wear to a casual outdoor festival? That's always an issue in Houston when the temperatures are rising and the need to stay cool is weighed against the desire to look cool. We were struck at how casually cool Lacey Loppnow appeared at the Houston International Festival. Loppnow, who just moved to H-Town from New York City four months ago, wore a breezy summer dress with a crochet bodice and woven print hem from Free People. (A friend who works for the hip chain gave her the dress; Free People recently opened its second Houston store at CityCentre.) To complete her ensemble, she pulled out her favorite well-worn boots, originally purchased at Macy's, and a purse from Forever 21. "A dress is always cooler than jeans," Loppnow said. And, surprisingly, she favors boots over sandals to beat the summer heat.
