Summer is officially here and it is HOT! I live in an 11th floor apartment with no AC, and it just so happens that that is also my home office, so I’m basically working in a sweat lodge. Good thing I’m moving back to Toronto soon though, where a nicely air conditioned living room awaits me and my mobile workspace.
The muggy summer heat can make it *really* difficult to dress up nicely, especially for formal events where you have to take nice photos! Here are a few tips for a semiformal summer look that keeps you feeling as beautiful as you look.
- Choose a light fabric that flows, like a light cotton or linen.
- Choose light colours. They reflect the sunlight instead of absorbing it, which keeps you cooler.
- Wear shoes that breathe, but also stay on. Think strappy sandals and high ankles instead of closed-toed stilettos. Need shoe suggestions? Check out my summer shoe staples here!
Following these rules, I chose this light and airy asymmetrical dress from Ann Taylor and paired it with a vibrant Jeanne Lottie purse and my favourite casual heels from Massarotto Luisa Calzature.
