Beat the Heat in Style

Alright, it's officially disgusting outside. It's that walk-out-the-door-and-start-sweating-profusely kind of hot. And I don't know about you, but I find it difficult to look good in anything when it's this warm. Jeans stick. Tank tops stick. Skirts even stick in this weather. Gross! So, I did some hunting to find the best possible wardrobe pieces for sweltering heat. Here are the coooolest things I found...

I personally find maxi dresses to be like heat tunnels--they just filter all that hot air straight up at your body. So, here's my favorite alternative--an easy, breezy, shorter version that's super versatile. This one, from Anthropologie, comes in several different colors.

 

I should have added jewelry to that list of things that stick, too. Yes, when it's hot, even necklaces stick. So I say, keep everything heavy and sweat-worthy off your face and neck--go for cute, dangly earrings to add some spice to your ensemble, while keeping things cool around your head. I almost bought up Forever 21's entire accessory section the other day, but to spare you some endless scrolling, I'll just narrow it down to one: heart-shaped hoops. So cute, and they're only $2.80.

 

I know lots of ladies are sporting the crop top right now, but my abs are not ready for the world, nor is the world ready for my abs. As a longer, more wearable alternative, C&C California has tons of adorable tie-front shirts available. My Hawaiian-loving self is loving this palm tree print, available at Revolve.

 

And if none of these ideas work, you can always just chase down the ice cream truck and sit on your porch slurping lemonade and noshing on ice cream treats for the duration of the summer. That's probably what I'll be doing :)

Time to Accessorize!

I was going to write "Time to Exercise!" but let's be honest, accessorizing is way more fun. Here are some of my favorite new baubles for 2013...

 

KINGS + PRIESTS

 

 

I'm really enamored with this line of jewelry because the owner tells the inspiration and meaning behind specific pieces and materials - she has a lot of insight and wisdom to offer. Check it out for yourself and order a piece or two @ http://houseofkingsandpriests.com.

 

Zoe & Morgan

 

 

Zoe & Morgan pieces are pretty rock and roll, which I love. But their little word rings are super cute, too. They have cool guy's stuff as well, which is hard to come by! Check it out... http://zoeandmorgan.com.

 

ETSY

 

 

Good ole, Etsy. You have everything I could ever need or want! And I've been into anchors lately. Found these little gems on All Beadazzled's shop. So cute! Get yourself some...

Can Technology Be Cute?

I didn't think so...until now. These iphone cases actually make me want to use my phone. Which is really saying something because I pretty much hate my phone. But the always-classy Kate Spade has found a way to make technology attractive! So, from all of us who detest our personal handheld devices, thank you.

Work It

Calling all professionals! Here are some super cute business cards I found on minted. A lot of people are simply putting their name + email on business cards these days, but ultimately it's up to you what you want to include on each card. Promoting yourself never looked so good!

Things That Are Neat

Nothing like a little retail therapy to cure the winter blues!

I'm obsessed with lamp lighting and, by extension, lamp shades. This one is sweet and springy. www.anthropologie.com

 

 

My mom spotted this dress and I think it's adorable, too. www.bcbg.com

 

 

 

Even if you can't wind a film, this photo album is lots of fun. www.barnesandnoble.com
