A Scorchin’ Hot Summer Outfit
Don’t you wish you could just hide out in an air-conditioned building all summer and avoid the blaze of the scorching hot temps?!
Hey, a girl can dream.
When you do have to go out – and I KNOW you will – you’ll have to dress strategically. Something cute, functional, and ideally that you feel comfortable in.
My summer uniform changes slightly from year to year so this post is all about what’s working for me this time around and hopefully you can get a few tips to help yourself!
Keep reading to learn more about my simple summer outfit formula.
Pretty, Practical, Powerful
No matter what time of year it is or what season of life you’re going through, I think it’s important to use your clothes to express yourself.
Even when I’ve spent more times than I can count in the hospital during the last year, I always made sure to wear my favorite socks with the provided scrubs and medical mask.
The way this applies to getting dressed in the summer is choosing clothes in a fun pattern or your “power color”. (The color that makes you feel like you can take on the world!)
I chose a pink maxi dress in a lightweight cotton material. It’s actually a little on the sheer side so it lets in the ultimate breeze and I hope the striped pattern helps distract from any undergarment outlines!
I also added an oversized denim jacket on top, again, in pink. This is a good topper for both sun protection and to fight the chill of indoor A/C that always seems to be too high in public spaces.
Both of these pieces help add interest to a look when you can’t do a lot of layering!
The real star of my outfit is the accessories!
You can never have too many in the summer. From practical ones like a wide-brim sun hat, a bucket hat, or a kimono. To fun pieces like statement earrings, sunglasses, and chunky sandals.
? WHAT I’M WEARING ?
Thrifted maxi dress, purple hoop earrings, and jacket, $4 total | Target sandals, $25 | Old H&M sunglasses, $5
When all else fails and your body demands to stay indoors in very minimal clothing, a popsicle or a big bowl of ice cream is the way to go! I may or may not be having that kind of day while writing this post. 😉
