Heat Wave | How to dress minimally for the hot weather!

Heat Wave

I kid you not, I step outside and instantly want to be right back inside. We are experiencing some kind of heat wave over here on the east coast! It has been in the very high 80's and 90's the past week and a half. Basically I've spent everyday pool side or at the river because it's just way too hot to not be in the water! Finding something to wear when it's this hot outside is a serious struggle because it's like you want to look cute but you also don't want to sweat through every piece of clothing you are wearing.

When it's hot I tend to gravitate towards dresses and this striped, button down dress has been my favorite recently! The material is soft and very light weight and doesn't cling to my skin which is great for this weather. Although I love this dress on it's own I feel like adding a belt adds a touch of trendy chic to it! Side note, this belt was only $1.99 from the thrift store! I was ecstatic when I saw it hanging on the wall because these belts are so "in" right now and I was able to snag one for super inexpensive. Definitely check your local thrift store but if you can't find any I love this one from Free People and this one from Urban Outfitters! 

Along with my belt I opted for my fringe booties. I am a bootie girl no matter what month it is! I was going to go for sandals but the look of my strappy sandals with this outfit just wasn't doing it for me. I love a touch of fringe in the summer and these booties add just the right amount! 

I hope you all are having a great Thursday. The weekend is almost in hands reach!
