Hot weather always makes me want to go super-minimal, with slip-on shapes and neutral colors. Maybe summer makes me lazy, but I don’t think you can beat an LBD and a pair of sandals. Do you wear black in summer?

I have given up wearing black. It does not go well with my skintone and is so, so, so overdone. I instead wear navy, army green, and camel as my neutrals. Find what works for you, right? ;)

I wish I could, but wether here does not allow it, our summers usually go over 100 F. making me super sensetive to the touch of clothes, linen shorts and a loose light top usually does it or a jump suit. I have try dresses but my innerthights feel awfull. If I do wear a dress to go out I need to wear something under… ;(

Hate black, except for ski wear, but totally LOVE the blog and all the tutorials.

I’m a classical musician. So I wear black year round!
