White Out

Top: Target (old) Shorts: Banana Republic Factory Store (old, similar, eyelet romper, so cute!) Wedges: Bakers (old, option, option) Clutch: R+J via TJ Maxx (splurge, love this printed one) Necklace: Target  Bangle: Express (old) Bracelet: via Nordstrom Rack Watch: Michael Kors Sunglasses: Jessica Simpson via TJ Maxx Belt: Express Hair Tie: Kitsch c/o South Moon Under

When temperatures are creeping up to 100 degrees, you do not want to be caught in anything remotely dark... dark colors absorb more heat and can have you sweating way more than if you had just worn something light and breezy. For these it's-so-hot-I-can't-breathe days, an all white outfit is more than appropriate. I chose a light weight cotton top and a pair of eyelet shorts. For little pops of color, I added a pink belt and a blue foldover clutch.

This little clutch was definitely a #maxxinista find - for only $13 it's a steal! I've always loved envelope clutches but realized that I'd have to play tetris to get all my things to fit perfectly. I've grown more fond of this foldover style, the material is thick and flexible enough to hide any lumps and bumps caused by the contents of my purse. 

Bonus of wearing an all white outfit? It can make you look tanner! So that must really be saying something about how pale I am if I look "dark" in these pictures... #ineedsomesun

Have a great rest of the week!

PS - There was a picture of me & Sarita in the Sunday Style section of the Washington Post this past weekend. It was when we attended the South Moon Under pool party - pretty awesome seeing myself in print!
