the weekend is finally here and although I am not feeling my best this week I am happy to have some free days ahead of us filled with plenty of stuff other than buying grcoeries and doing laundry.
Since I am sharing my last summer looks with you already (can´t wait ´til fall is here so excited for all the cute and cozy pieces) this dress had to be included cause it is so pretty. The color is absolutely gorgeous and the ruffles on the top make is so adorable. I got it from Zara the other monts and am not sure if it is still available but they have a ton of summer pieces on sale right now so if you are holding on to the season or going onto your summer vacation the next time I would definitely have a look at their site or stores.
I paired the green dress with a funny tasseled straw tote and other than that all nude accessories. I am usually not one to wear a lot of arm candy but for this ocassion it fit perfectly to stack different kinds of bracelets together.
Do you still want to read summer content or are you as excited for fall as I am ? I also started to get some fall decor today.
See you tomorrow for another round of “what I wear in real life”.
Fall is finally coming closer, you can literally feel it. The mornings are already cool and foggy and the heat waves seem to be gone. I know some of you love Summer and hold onto it as long as possible but I am personally very happy that we are almost into September. I just ordered my first batch of pumpkin candles this morning. Go pumpkin spice.
Since this look is such a easy and effortless t-shirt / denim combo I spiced it up with a handful of gorgeous accessories like
– the pearl studded mules – a huge trend since last year
– the flowery statement earrings – statement earrings seem to go nowhere and I have just ordered a bunch of them at a amazon – stay tuned for a round-up
– silk headband – hair accessories are also a huge trend this year – I have a blog post coming up next week about the most stylish piece and how to wear them
A belt would also be another super nice accessories but I wasn´t sure which one to wear so I left it.
Do you like to style up your casual pieces or really wear them in a casual way? I would love to know.
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?
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.
