We had an unexpected heat wave last week – it was so hot and humid that it reminded me of those long summer days when we lived in the South. For the record, the climate in New York is much more to my liking! So, what do you wear on a day when it’s sweltering out but you still want to look cute? My solution is a lightweight tank, a silky loose skirt + messy ponytail.
This linen-blend camisole is such a great summer basic – instead of tucking it in, I used a clear hair elastic to create a knotted effect at the waist (one of my favorite styling hacks!). I am loving the button-detail trend this season like this skirt, this striped midi, this peplum top & this sundress.
This cargo skirt is one of the most worn pieces in my wardrobe – it’s over 4 years old, but I found a near-identical one for you here. It’s so versatile & pairs just as well with a basic striped tee as it does with lightweight layers (as seen in this post). See more of my top picks for the hot weather in the scrolling bar below!
