Hello my sweet and sweating friends,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

how´s it been the so far? I have to admit that I am very happy with nice weather but it doesn´t have to be necessarily hot. My favorite season is Fall cause the air has finally cooled down and freshened up and nature shows its beautifullest colors. I am gonna stick with that. But as long as it is hot we still have to go to work everyday (the fewest can take off the whole summer time) and sweat our butts off.

If you are lucky you have air-conditioning at your office. I work at a listed building which means I have few to no chances of getting an air condition ever. My husband has one at his office but one of his collegues is always freezing so they are only able to turn it on when he is out on appointments. Not the best either. But there is one thing you can do for yourself to brave the heat or maybe a bunch of options. Also while you are dressing for summer it shouldn´t mean you start dressing unappropriate for your work environment. Wearing less and shorter clothing doesn´t help much with staying cool.

How to dress for the Summer Heat

  • don´t go bare shouldered or with thin strappy tops  (unless you are in a very creative space and people don´t mind)
  • make sure your skirts aren´t to short
  • dress in looser fitted pieces (you will sweat less when your body can breath between the fabric)
  • these are you key materials for summer – silk, chiffon, linen
  • wear sandals (if office appropriate and allowed)
  • pin up your hair (it helps not to overheat by having your neck free to breath)
  • shorts shouldn´t be showing off your buttocks

How is your work environment in the summer months ? Are you a lucky one with AC?

Take care. See you.

Good morning friends,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I am starting the new week with a vacation post from Lake Garda. I have taken so many different swimsuits with me but only came around wearing three of them cause some days it was just to hot to sit outside at the pool or the lake. I really didn´t want to get sunburned at all.

Since it is going to be the end of summer soon and vacation time is in its high some of my original pieces aren´t available anymore but I have linked the closest pieces I could find under every look.

Swimsuit Round-Up

I personally love to add all kinds of accessories to my swimsuits. A plain swimsuit can be totally fine but bringing it to the next level by adding trendy pieces like colorful sarongs, dramatic statement sunglasses and woven sunhats makes so much more fun. It may not be super parctical for going into the water but let´s be honest, the majority is not going to jump into the pool all the time or dive her way through.

Another thing I highly recommend is wearing a sarong or a kimono to the beach bar. Although it is a beach bar the people who come after you don´t want to seat on a chair were your sweaty butt has been a minute before. I wouln´t want it and I am sure most people wouldn´t too. For me this just belongs to etiquette.

Hoping your week starts well. I am super tired today and have to pick up several pieces in our garden after a huge storm hit us last night. Haven´t seen so many lightnings in a long time. To be honest it was a little frightening.

My Lake Garda Travel Diary is coming to the blog this week but if you are on the search for different travel content check out my travel tab here and to find out what we did in Verona or what we ate all week. Fall posts are hitting the blog very soon cause I have to honestly admit I am in kind of a summer rut. I don´t want to dress for the heat anymore and also I don´t want it to be hot anymore.

Happy thursday you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

as Summer comes slowly to an end I am posting my last Summer looks until I go all in for fall fashion (can´t wait cause fall is my favorite season all year). I still have some posts I want to share with you whether it´s looks or beauty or vacation wear.

I got this dress for our Lake Garda vacation but didn´t come around wearing it so I have worn it on the weekend last week and I love it. It has the perfect lenght, is super light, not seethrough and under 15 Euro. I am wearing an XL cause of the meassurements and it fits great, but make always sure to check the size reference so your article fits right. Sizes differ a lot on their side.

A denim jacket is the perfect companion for almost every Summer dress and it is no exception in this case. To complete the look I added my favorite pair of espadrilles and laser-cut handbag in white.

Are you also longing for the weekend as bad as I do ? I am so so tired everyday and I desperately need to sleep in.

For tomorrow I am going to share another recipe. Two side dishes I love to make whether it is for a BBQ, a steak or just to eat plain. Check it out.

See you.
