If you live in the eastern half of the U.S., you know that it was a wee bit warm the past week or so. Extreme weather often makes for a bit of a conundrum when it comes to picking an outfit. Do you forget about style and just wear whatever will keep you from melting into a little puddle on the sidewalk? Or do you sacrifice a little bit (or a lotta bit) of comfort in exchange for a cute ensemble?

On this particular occasion, it was evening and I was riding in an air-conditioned car to eat dinner in an air-conditioned restaurant, so it wasn’t such a hard choice. I kept cool in the shorts and flip flops, and this little cardigan-esque number is actually a very light silky material. I got it because I thought it would be a good summer alternative to a thicker cardigan or jacket – turns out I was right (I usually am).

  1. hey! that blazer is so great on you! I live in Indonesia, a tropical country with high heat almost everyday (unless in rainy seasons, in which the sun still does not want to conceit). my solution is to keep my clothes light i don’t wear too many layers or fabric such an knits or silk. i keep those for evening, where the weather is slightly cooler. light fabric is my best friend down here! :)

    • Oh man, if I ever go to Indonesia I will keep that in mind! I love the summer, but I also think I would miss wearing sweaters and scarves if I lived somewhere that was hot all the time. Seasons are my friend :)
