I wore this yesterday evening, but the weather was still way too hot to wear even the most lightweight layers. This is why you shouldn't get dressed before checking the weather or going outdoors. I pretty much melted. But somehow, my makeup stayed in place! You win some, you lose some.

Today, I learned my lesson and dressed appropriately for the weather. High five!

  1. It's been sickeningly hot on my end as well. You look quite lovely, and I may just steal a page from your book and start wearing my hair up from now on.

  3. I have a love hate relationship with Summer. I love tanks and the sun and all that stuff but I hate dressing for summer in the sense that, I can't layer over my tanks!! I live in SoCal where it can be blazing HOT! I feel like my summer looks always end up being the same. Boring tanks and maybe some shorts or summer dresses. Any advice?

  4. This looks gorgeous, I Really love your nails. I live in Scotland so we don't really have a Summer, I'm jealous that it's hot where you are!

  6. I'm not good at dressing for the summer, I dislike feeling hot and I think autumn winter clothes are prettier! I take a bit of a fashion hiatus in the summer!

    You look beautiful, I really love your long blazer/jacket and your nail polish is super pretty!

  9. I have that exact same ring but mine's from Styles for Less...I swear they must get it all from China ;D

    At first I thought you dyed a bronze streak in your hair (so perfect for summer!) and then I realized it was your wrapped scarf ;P Super cute nonetheless!

  28. First of all...these days I'm loving any nautical stripes! Secondly, I'm really loving how you combined yours with the great color of those shorts and that jacket! It's like a really cool new twist on a classic! And I understand...it's so hot! Hate to say it, but I'm ready for fall! There are so many different ways I could use my closet right now if it weren't for the fact that I'd melt upon exiting my house!

  31. Such a fun trench. I've seen a few of these cropped ones around and they've so cute on everyone. A great way to add an extra layer in the summertime... although, from what you said, maybe not ALLLL of summertime.

  50. Kat: Cotton! Breathable fabrics make such a difference. Pick clothing made from lightweight, breathable fabrics and either flow away from the body or have a good amount of wiggle room. It was in the mid 90s today and I was pretty comfortable in a cotton maxi and sandals.
