Now summer is always a problem for me...
I love the sun, don't get me wrong, but the overbearing heat and humidity that come along with this season in my part of the world... well it can ruin your hair, melt your makeup off your face and make it very difficult to dress up in the morning. I'm a girl that loves to layer and have numerous pieces strung together for an overall look. The summer forces me to don a gauzy super thin dress (so as not to die from heat exhaustion) and not much else.
I'm figuring out how to stay stylish, without having to sacrifice my comfort and my cool.
Here is my outfit from our NYC adventure this weekend. We spent the morning in Brooklyn and then our afternoon in Soho. To say we walked a lot would be an understatement but I stayed pretty comfortable all while looking put together...
The gauzy, light fabric of my top. It helped me stay cool, even with the humidity and heat. I think I'll need to invest in more tops like this! Also featured... my $10 skirt from UO. I'm in love with the rivulet pattern going across the item. I have a feeling this may become one of my favorite pieces. Only time will tell!
