July. Summer. Vacay…. Who doesn’t love July? It always flies by, especially if you spend a couple of weeks on a beach or sightseeing. As far as I’m concerned, I’ll be working but I don’t really mind, because I hope think that the tough times at work are done, people will be more relaxed and I’ve heard that we’ll get plenty of sun, so I’ll make the most of it. Can’t wait! (Actually, I can’t wait for August cause I booked some time off then, but I’m trying the Coué method…). Now let’s get some fashion inspiration.
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 🙂
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.
June is usually the last “hellish” month at work, before the more “relaxed” (note the quotes here) months of July and August. But just because June will be tough work-wise, doesn’t mean we have to dress to match the mood. Au contraire. Let’s bring some colours. And fun prints. And statement pieces.
Well, don’t mind if I do 🙂 All I want to do in May is to ditch my all-black outfits and rock some fun pieces: bright or light colours, flower prints (I know, that is sonot groundbreaking), striped tees (you know how I love these),… It puts me in a good mood.
In these inspirations, you’ll find all of that and more worn by some of my favorite fashionistas: Alexandra Pereira, Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr, Xenia VDW, and Julie Sariñana.
