Or trying to beat the heat is more like it. Summer here can leave me feeling pretty irritable. Okay let's get real people - it leaves me feeling bitchy. Hot, sweaty, and uncomfortable is not my idea of a good time, which is why I tend to not put as much effort into getting dressed when it's over 100 degrees. What's the point? I'm just going to look disheveled an hour later. As hard as I try to maintain my style in the heat, I always end up gravitating towards easy, lightweight pieces. A tank, a skirt that has a good amount of stretch and an elastic waistband, and ditching the heels in favor of flat sandals. I also wear very little makeup. My Glo Minerals Moisturizing Tint with SPF, bronzed cheeks, and color on my lips. That's how I do Summer. Oh, and I like to layer my pretty gemstone jewelry to still keep my girly edge while not being bogged down by giant statement pieces.

Exhibit A (my best friend and I last weekend. Delicate jewelry but lots of it and flat sandals)

However...the above thought process may change at some points this Summer. I do like to dress up, so even if that means sweating my way into a blazer or wearing jeans when it's OMG less than 95 degrees, I will do that. Just for you guys ;)

How do you dress for Summer? Are you still as creative as you are in the cooler months, or do you dress more for comfort? Linking up with Tara.


  1. You still look polished and pretty and true to your own style, even in your "beat the heat" attire. I just do my best to find a balance between comfort and style, which is why I love Barcelona camis so much. :) LOVE the delicate jewelry and pretty manicures in your pic with Katie!

  2. Haha this is exactly how I feel. Sweaty and bitchy. My fingers start to feel puffy. I just hate life. You look chic and unaffected by the weather. Love the blue on you.

  3. Love the pic with your friend - so much dainty prettiness! I'm still sad I don't have a Barcelona cami - I nearly picked it up when it was on sale but my friend convinced me to get a different express cami instead - and its just not as cute LOL! Waiting for the next Barcelona cami sale.
