Summer is heating up! While the temperatures continue to rise, my summer seems to be cooling off. With no promise of traveling in my near future, I must come up with other ways to bide my time. Living in a smaller city leaves much to the imagination when planning fun activities to do. One of my favorite activities is fashion photoshoots! This can be one of the best ways to get to know all parts of your hometown.
I explored and found this gorgeous spot! I styled this outfit specifically with summertime in mind. Moreover, I love this look because it’s chic but still perfect for a hot summer day. The perfect outfit for your summer internship or the first day back to school. Staying chic during the summer can seem like the most impossible task! I want to share a couple of my tips on how you can look fabulous this summer while beating the heat.
Wearing white between Memorial Day and Labor Day isn’t just some fashion rule, it does have some significance, because the color white absorbs less heat. I love this top from American Eagle, because it’s light and airy but also incredibly chic and girly. I love wearing white tops and dresses for a cooler summer look!
Say No! Pants are not ideal for hot summer days, so opt for a skirt, dress, or some cute shorts. As much as I love pants, they just aren’t practical in the heat of the summer. My skirt is from Target, which is no-longer available; however, I’ve linked some other options below.
My go-to shoe during the summer are sandals. There are so many options depending on what kind of sandals you prefer. My favorite are these strap-y black sandals with gold accents from the brand Bamboo. Sandals keep your feet looking and feeling cool during the summertime!
Nothing is worse than feeling like you are sweating your face off (not cute). I recommend a BB Cream, mascara, and a hydrating lip balm with SPF (trust me you CAN burn your lips) for your natural summer makeup look.
