Posts Tagged With: what to wear in a heat wave

Flowers in July

How did everyone in the Northeast survive this heat wave that’s just ending? In this staggering humid heat it is a challenge to dress in any way that feels breezy enough and doesn’t stick to your body.

I solved this problem by visiting Anthropologie, one of the stores that doesn’t just mark down all their summer stuff and bring in fall at this point in the summer. I love stores that remember we are still trying to stay cool and stay in season and that we just want to see something new in the middle of the season.

For staying cool in my summer travels, I picked up this breezy, loose, chiffon floral top. I am just loving the trend for tiny, old-fashioned florals — so feminine! It is a real contrast to most of my fashion experience to date.

For a modern twist, I added this white, cream and gold oversized necklace, also from Anthropologie.
