Ay dios mio! It’s hot in Florida. Like literally, really freaking hot right now. I like to say that summertime in Florida is a lot like the northeast during the wintertime. Everyone stays inside from 11 to 3PM. There is no way you’re leaving your house unless you absolutely have to! Otherwise your hair falls flat, your makeup runs and your clothing starts to wrinkle. Not. Good. For. A. Fashion. Blogger.

Slowly but surely, I’ve started to embrace my messy hair, natural makeup (sometimes just a lip + highlighter + mascara) flowy pieces and lightweight fabrics. Whatever!

A tank like this one, by Joie via Saks Fifth Avenue Boca Raton, is light, airy and delicate – perfect for the South Florida heat. It’s beautifully detailed… is slightly sheer (making it a little sexy) and breezy when caught in the wind. You can wear a lace bandeau bra underneath it (i.e. more freedom in the heat, #nojudgement) or with a nude bra. It’s also sleeveless (because extra fabric is NOT your friend this time of year) and can easily be dressed up with white jeans or dressed down with a white bikini.

I bought these lace shorts a million years ago from Saks Off 5th. I’ve worn them a bunch because they’re ultra-light and slightly nicer than jean shorts. Unfortunately, they’re no longer available online; click here and here for similar styles.

AND YES, I love hats this time of year. I know, I know… I’ve worn this one in like EVERY single outfit post lately. It’s just that a hat is – A.) the quickest way to cover up flat hair, B.) super chic and C.) a great way to shield your face from the sun. (Let me know if you guys want me to do a roundup post on my favorite hats this summer!)

Closed-toe shoes are almost too hot to wear right now. And no, I’m not wearing flip-flips either. So, instead – I opted for these black lace-up wedges from Topshop to complete the look! Get ready, you’ll see them a bunch this month. I love them so much!

Wishing everyone a cool, easy week ahead! I’m gearing up for a busy one – Swim Week starts this Thursday in Miami Beach and I can’t wait to share it with you guys!

Xo, Stephanie

  • I LOLd at this post. It is insufferable outside!! Makes me want to live in my bikini, but alas, I can not. This is such a cute and airy outfit. Love it from head to toe. Yes, do a hats round up. I typically don’t like hats for myself, and my hair is too big. Yes my hair. LOL But they looks so cute on you and I would love to see a hats round up!
