the summer uniform to beat the heat.

Right now we are in the middle of a heat wave, so my outfits need to be simple and no-fuss because the purpose is just to stay cool and stay alive! Let me tell you, it's hard to look cute when sweat is dripping down your face, you hair is frizzing from the humidity, and your legs are sticking to you car seat. BRUTAL. Anyway, I've gotten my summer uniform down to a science. It's simple. Cute tanks, denim shorts, hat to keep the sun away (also looks cute with a poneytail or bun to keep the hair off your neck), sandals, sunglasses (obviously) and minimal accessories. If you can, keep it to something simple. Also a colorful nail polish, which is great when you're wearing minimal clothing because it gives your outfit some kick without adding on the layers!

So is anyone else experiencing a heat wave in your neck of the woods? I've been living on iced coffees and my AC is my new best friend. What's your favorite way to beat the heat?
