Finally! Here is a refreshing fashion post for these hot summer days.
Before I dive in, here are three things I have been sweating about…
1. If you really like these posts, make sure to subscribe. I do not spam with random emails. You should only get a notification whenever a new post is uploaded!
2. I’m a lover of music and love discovering new tunes. From now on, I will link my Spotify to a song I’ve been loving with every post. Hopefully the catchy tunes bring light to your day. You can listen to it while reading the blogs or just to cheer you up. Also, don’t forget to share the love and let me know what songs you’ve been loving by commenting down below.
3. Also, make sure to follow me on my social media, to get a little more personal. Not tooting my own horn but I’ve been told my social media is pretty lit.
Now on to the look…
I am not fond of summer, especially summer in Northern Virginia. The weather is bipolar with hot and humid weather some days and stormy weather on others.

Although these picture were taken months ago, which means my style literally has changed a lot, a lot, i think this is still a go to outfit if your trying to keep it low key.
I’ve put together a complete outfit to outsmart this weather. I went ahead with pants for those days where you just don’t have time to shave your legs. Let’s be honest, I’m usually lazy to let go of the crazy mane on my legs. This outfit is great for those over 80-degree weather.
Remember to flash your flair. Even with your Sasquatch hair. Shhh… no one needs to know.
Loose T’s are a must for the summer time. They are casual and keep cool. I knotted the T-shirt in the front to add a grungy, tropical look and show a moderate bit of skin in the bodice.
To keep cooler, the pants can be substituted with shorts. The subtle blue stripes in the pants allow the incorporation of other colors and I did just that. I added some comfortable, black platforms to add to the grungy look.
As for accessories, I went with round, black shades to bring the chic back into the outfit. The spikes in the necklace bring out the grunge vibe and the tribal in my brown bag brings the unexpected factor into the outfit. I topped it all with a hat. It not only protects me from the sun, but makes me feel like a park ranger.
Whether you are spending the day in the concrete jungle like I am or if you’re actually adventuring in nature, this outfit is sure to turn heads and keep you semi-cool.
Till next time! xxx
