Summer Heat

Skirt? Winners (similar here) Tank? h&m (old) Shoes? Ash, Winners (very similar here) Bag? Roots
 Earrings and bracelet? From my parents and Oma

It's been hot and busy around here. The worst combination; just ask Kyle. Our delicate flower of a cat can't handle the steady stream of company in our house and has resorted to hiding himself away on this secret little shelf in the side of Matt's closet. In an attempt to stay cool, he sticks his front paws out of the closet and the sight of those little paws is, at the same time, the cutest and the saddest thing ever. In this heat, our house is generally a pretty sweaty place to be but that hidden little shelf seems like the worst choice. I've said it before, Kyle was given an extra pinch of fluffiness and good looks but he's no genius.
For those of us with more brain power than Kyle (that is not saying much, is it?), we have resorted to finding different ways of staying cool. We're hugging fans, drinking on the back porch and wearing natural fibres. Like this polyester skirt...?
Wow, my beating the heat strategies are as wise as Kyle's...

New subscriber here. This is hands down in my top 5 outfits out of all the style blogs I read and look at everyday! The tank with the sheer material and the racerback is so hot. And the skirt! Most adorable thing ever. I could so wear this outfit to work with a blazer or cardigan. I love it! Oh and the shoes, the little pop of color. ♥ So many envious vibes sent in your direction. Cute twist updo as well.

When it's beastly hot, my cats sit in the doorjambs. Must get some good breeze there ...

Your hair is GORGEOUS like this!

Pets with the lowest IQs always seem to be the cutest! And I keep falling into the polyester-trap too. Not so great for the heat! Love this look though - very ballerina-esque :)

If you have to wear something in this heat this would be the ideal outfit. Black for hiding sweat stains and the skirt, although polyester, looks light and flows nicely. I like it!

So, so chic, lady! Pairing black tanks with lovely skirts is one of my favorite ways to beat the heat, too.
