Hey StyleLeeders! Happy Friday!
Yup it’s official, this is by far one of the hottest summer’s ever! You would think growing up as an island gal where it’s warm all year round I would be able to manage the Summer months. BUT HECK NO! I am having the hardest time coping with the heat this year! Between patting down my ‘sweat stashe’, trying to avoid makeup meltdowns and excess shine while dealing with a current break out of eczema and mild body acne—the summer heat has been dreadful for my mind, body and my skin.
Since it has been unbearably hot I’ve been dressing fuss free in order to stay as cool as possible by opting for lighter tones, lightweight and breathable fabrics and by wearing as little clothing as possible.
I recently wore this midi bodycon dress to my best friends birthday get together and it was the best decision ever to wear this figure hugging dress. Now I know you must be thinking a skin tight dress is ridiculous to wear on a hot summer day, but when you stick with one made from a thin, lightweight fabric you’ll quickly realize it’s much more comfortable than wearing your heavy denim pants.
I call this dress my summertime version of the epic little black dress because it has easily become a wardrobe staple of mine for the warm weather. I actually picked up this dress in a total of 6 colors because it’s a timeless and basic closet essential that I’ve been able to transition from a dinner party, to a birthday get together and to the office with a blazer. WINNING!
I wanted to add little contrast to my look for visual impact so I opted to pair my nude/taupe dress with stark black accessories. I went with my new babies from @ShoeTeaseJa and my black, mini tote bag from Aldo. Simplistic with light tones and breathable fabric – Perfect for the heat while still staying fab.
