Sarah's Real Life

If you live in the eastern half of the U.S., you know that it was a wee bit warm the past week or so. Extreme weather often makes for a bit of a conundrum when it comes to picking an outfit. Do you forget about style and just wear whatever will keep you from melting into a little puddle on the sidewalk? Or do you sacrifice a little bit (or a lotta bit) of comfort in exchange for a cute ensemble?

On this particular occasion, it was evening and I was riding in an air-conditioned car to eat dinner in an air-conditioned restaurant, so it wasn’t such a hard choice. I kept cool in the shorts and flip flops, and this little cardigan-esque number is actually a very light silky material. I got it because I thought it would be a good summer alternative to a thicker cardigan or jacket – turns out I was right (I usually am).

So what are your thoughts on dressing in high-heat conditions? Leave me a comment. And don’t forget to follow Sarah’s Real Life (scroll down to enter your email or follow through Bloglovin’) so you’ll know as soon as new posts go up. You know you want to.

  1. Cute cardigan! Love the Lauren Conrad line!

  2. I guess I base if I will dress weather appropriate or not on what I will be doing too. Dinner at a restaurant inside? Whatever I feel like wearing. BBQ outside with no pool? Flowy t shirt and shorts!

  3. I like to keep the sun off of my face with a hat. I also bring a wrap with my sleeveless dresses in case it gets chilly in the evening.

  4. hey! that blazer is so great on you! I live in Indonesia, a tropical country with high heat almost everyday (unless in rainy seasons, in which the sun still does not want to conceit). my solution is to keep my clothes light i don’t wear too many layers or fabric such an knits or silk. i keep those for evening, where the weather is slightly cooler. light fabric is my best friend down here! :)


    • Oh man, if I ever go to Indonesia I will keep that in mind! I love the summer, but I also think I would miss wearing sweaters and scarves if I lived somewhere that was hot all the time. Seasons are my friend :)
