Summer Essentials: Women's Wear Edition

Summer is officially around us! The sunshine is gracing us with heat and unfortunately we have to bear with the humidity. During these dog days of July, and of course the following month of August, finding things to wear comfortably is a challenge. But I'm here to reassure you that you don't have to hide indoors on days where the sun's rays seem too harsh. Here are some necessities that will keep you cool and covered this summer.

Cool Accessories: All the little things in life can go a long way. I personally love summer for this reason. Sunglasses and sun hats are my go-to summer accessories because they act as sun shields aside from the sunscreen. So needless to say, if you're going out to run some quick errands and would rather skip the sunscreen application, just throw on those too cool for school shades and a hat! On days where a tank top and a skirt just doesn't seem like enough, play it up with a light scarf or small hints of jewelry. Here are a few of my picks!

1. Sun Hat / 2. Zeppelin Sunnies / 3. Black & White Wave Pouch / 4. Striped Watches / 5. Essie Nail Polish / 6. Navy Striped Scarf

Chill Threads: Gone are the days for sweaters, those long fuzzy socks that you want to live in forever, and that cup of hot chocolate you grab before work - my usual fall/winter rituals. Now that we've ditched all of the layers, where do we start? Basics are not only a staple, but they're perfect for summer when you just want to throw something quick on. Wearing printed bottoms/skirts or loud jewelry can take your outfit from zero to hero. It's okay to keep it simple. Simple can be beautiful. One of my favorites things to wear during the summer are dresses. Dresses save us time, they're comfortable, and let's be honest, they can make us feel like a million dollars. They are a perfect staple piece for the summer. Here are a few fun pieces, drum roll please...

1. Sky Blue Maxi Dress / 2. Two-tone Camisole / 3. White Spot Skater Skirt / 4. Floral Print Yellow Dress / 5. Grapefruit Top / 6. Light Blue High Waist Shorts

That's all I have for you today. I hope that you enjoyed the pieces I've listed, or at least have inspired you to get out in the sun. You're never too old to get creative with what you wear. Most importantly, don't let the summer heat limit you.

Outfit Recipe for 100-Degree Heat

By Kelly Newell at Scout: Dry Goods & Trade
 
Okay. It's hot. Real real hot. I don't want wear anything, but of course I'll get arrested if I don't. This is my favorite outfit to wear in 100-degree-burn-your-butt-yes-you-are-sweating-and-it's-only-9am-outfit. Here are the ingredients for a great hot weather outfit...
The basics, I air dry my hair and then pull it up in a messy bun and add a cute lightweight scarf as a headband. I'm super pale or a nice way to say it, I've got "porcelain" skin. Either way, my legs are far too white for me to be comfortable in shorts without a little fake tan. I got a gift card to Sephora for Christmas so I splurged on some $35 sunless tanner/bronzer by Lorac. It works perfectly and just the way it's supposed to. In the warmer months, I usually get a pedicure every couple months and have been leaning towards these really pretty (and girly-unusal for me) papaya colors lately. When it's super hot out like it's been, I'll usually just wear a moisturizer with built in sunscreen and then a little of this cheek stain by Tarte that I also found at Sephora (also a splurge, but it will last forever, so I can justify it).
Start with an easy top that's got some visual interest and you won't need as much jewelry. Bonus points if it's a top that you don't need to wear a bra with. There are so many awesome colored shorts out right now and they are perfect with a cuff and functional with pockets. These sandals are cute and just as easy to wear as plain old flip flops and they stay on great when driving and running around town. I have a vintage Coach messenger bag I picked up at Scout a couple of years ago that looks a lot like this one that isn't too precious to throw around and drag through the day with me. I'll throw in a pen, mail, my wallet, a Diet Coke, chap stick, my phone and still have some room left over. I don't have a phone case and probably should since I drop mine phone so often, so I'm in the market for a case and this one is really cute. To finish the outfit off, you gotta have sunglasses-I personally really like aviators, but any pair would work. When it's really hot out, keep the jewelry to a minimum and wear one statement item like this cool gold ring and an interesting but simple pair of stud earrings. There you go, garnish with a few slices of watermelon and you're all set!!

TopShop striped top, $50 Aso, $26 PARENTESI flip flop shoes, $79 Cydwoq studded messenger bag, 375 CAD ASOS stud earrings, $10 Dome ring, $43 Ray-Ban metal sunglasses, $129 Tarte Natural Beauty Cheek Stain Natural Beauty, $30 LORAC SelfTANtalizer Body Bronzing Gradual Self-Tanner & Mitt 5 oz, $34 NARS Nail Polish Ecume, $17
