Again, I will never complain about an extra week of summer…but dayuuuum it’s hot! I know this sounds next to impossible because I’m talking about Vancouver, but walking through the city in the middle of the day brings back some serious memories of mid-July in Toronto…the air literally feels like a wall.
In a similar sense to the way I struggle to style looks in the depths of February (when the rain is never ending and there’s next to no light), I’m having a hard time getting dressed lately because it’s just so sticky and muggy! All I want are airy layers (like this oversized tee) and if I have to go fitted, I want something that’s completely light like this lace skirt. 
If any of you are struggling through some similar heat waves, how are you coping? I mean I love the heat, but when your body’s priming for fall, it comes as a bit of a shock, right?

    I'm struggling because all I want to do is wear layers and pants, but it's much too hot for that. I've been wearing loose tees and shorts and a dangly necklace. Love your skirt!

    I wore almost this exact outfit yesterday. Grey tee with cream skirt. I love skirts or dresses or oversized tees for when the weather is this hot. Was incredibly humid last night!

    Just pretend like you're on vacation somewhere 🙂 I'm liking the casual top with the crochet skirt, good choice.

    I really like the skirt. We're going through a late season heat wave in my city as well. I can't wait for autumn.

    Oh dahlin'… I feel your pain. I'm from Texas and work outside most of the time in 90 to 100+ fahrenheit. Seriously, the best outfit I've found to help me get through this is as follows:
    1. a light and airy 100% silk midi slip-dress
    2. a lightweight white, pale grey, or neutral colored blazer
    3. straw or woven waist-cinching wide belt
    Flawless and foolproof. I also chug key-lime and peach iced tea like the devil. Essential for keeping cool. Honest.
