What To Wear For Work When It’s Really Hot

Hey there,

For the past few weeks, it’s been super duper hot.  It’s been so hot that it has been barely bearable.  You know when the temperature is so high that you have absolutely zero energy?  There is no fresh air, even at night, so you don’t get any sleep?  And you wake up exhausted?  But you still have to get up and go to work?  That’s been my routine for a month.

Another tough part is: how to dress?  Because all you want to do is laying down by a pool or on the beach in a bikini.  But you can’t.  If you want to be able to do that, you gotta go to work (as Britney would say: You want to live fancy?  You better work bitch).  And unless you work as a lifeguard – which I’m not – you have to dress appropriately.  Now let’s see what we can do 🙂

1.  Skirts:

You can play with the colours, the prints and the length: pencil skirts, a-line skirts, midi skirts and mini skirts.  Pair your skirt with a button-down shirt and you’re good to go.  If we don’t wear our skirts when it’s 100 degrees out, I don’t know when we will.

I don’t know about you, but when I look at these looks I think about my (awkward) teenage years.  More specifically, it makes me think of the early 2000s when some of my favorite celebs rocked dark denim – sometimes from head to toe – but always oh so perfectly: Aaliyah, Britney, Sarah Michelle Gellar, … I probably tried to copy them without much success.   Continue reading “How To Wear the Spring-Summer 18 Trends?

The 70s.  Charlie’s Angels.  The original.  I’ve grown up watching these gorgeous ladies.  Hence, I’ve been super duper influenced by that show.  So I am more than disposed to rock that trend this season.

It was seen on Marc Jacobs, Prada, Chloé and Gucci to name a few.
