It has been seriously toasty in Boston lately with highs in the 90s. That might be nothing to some of you, but to a New Englander like myself, it’s pretty tortuous, especially when you add in humidity. With temperatures this high, it can be hard to get dressed. Sadly, public nudity is frowned upon and one must get dressed to go outside. For me, there are four key pieces to a hot-weather outfit:


1. Swing Dress

The less my clothes touch my body during the summer, the better. That means I have swing dresses on repeat. They might not be the most figure flattering for someone like me with curves, but it’s so nice to not have sweaty clothes sticking to my body. There, I said it. This little number from Old Navy is comfortable, cute and travels well, which is great if you plan to take it on vacation or to the pool/beach.

2. Summer Hat

Keeping your beautiful face out of the sun is an absolute most during the summer months, especially when the sun is scorching down. Sun protection that also makes you look super hip and cool? Win-win. I grabbed this panama hat from Primark for only $6 and couldn’t be more happy with my purchase.

3. Slip-on Shoes

During the hot weather, I can’t be bothered to strap up sandals or lace sneakers. That’s where slide-ons like espadrilles or flip flips come into play. While I’m fine wearing flip flops to the beach, I like to feel a bit more pulled-together when I’m heading around town. These leopard espadrilles satisfy my love for all-things leopard and my need for easy-to-handle shoes.

4. Fun Accessories

This type of outfit is so easy, I feel a bit guilty for how little creative goes into it when getting dressed. I always make sure to throw on a few fun accessories to make me feel more pulled together. I love bold sunnies and a statement necklace that seems to go with everything.
