Blushing: My Guide To Dressing In Blistering Heat

July is about the time that temperatures start to hit the “unbearable” mark. So, why we decided to go to an even more scorching environment this past weekend is really beyond me (you can see more here). All that to say, I have a few items that I always turn to when I know the temperatures are going to be blistering (read: above 100°) and I still want to stay cool and look put together.

1.  Hats: This piece is multifunctional. You see, I hate doing my hair in hot temperatures, so I typically wait way too long between washes (#truelife)…. so a great hat helps me hide the inevitable bad hair day, all while looking pulled together. A few favorites include this straw hat and this straw fedora.

2. Breezy Tops: …. simply put, who wants something sticking to their body when the temps soar? I find that the breezier the top the better I feel. I love this little blush one I wore out in Palm Springs this past weekend, but I also love this white ruffle blouse or this ruffled peplum tank.

3. Breezy Bottoms: And, no, I don’t mean booty shorts here. I’m talking flowing skirts, your best pair of distressed denim shorts, and breezy chambray or crochet pair

So… there you have it… my 3 key pieces to not melt this summer!
