Fashion Friday (7/15/22)

Hey, yo! Happy Friday, my friend! Are you as excited about staying indoors for the next two days as I am?

Because y’all.

Mama ain’t here for the sweat.

That’s the thing about blistering hot temperatures, though. You’re miserable as soon as you step outside, but spend a little bit of time inside with aircon and you’re going to feel totally different.

Maybe even consider yourself a little cardigan, at that.

Today I’m overthinking summer layers, if you can’t tell by that intro. To be fair, most of my ramblings are all over the place, so I won’t blame you if you couldn’t.

So I live in coastal south Texas, where humidity of 99% and temperatures of 100+ degrees Fahrenheit are common from June to November. But I work in an office, where the temperature stays set on 68ish degrees Fahrenheit.

You can imagine the shock my body endures on a daily basis, right? And I’m willing to bet money that I’m not the only one who struggles with this every summer. So let’s talk, shall we?

So obviously this isn’t an office look, but I can see it working for casual parties. Not running errands, mind you, because running errands as a mom means carrying multiple things or children or both, literal running, and a whole lot of sweat. But a patio party or casual night out? Perfect.

This is most definitely a work appropriate outfit for me. I love the floaty skirt and utility jacket combo, and even more so because this one is light and airy.

I’d work it.

This look isn’t strictly ‘summer layers’ per se, but it honestly mirrors a lot of my work looks. Mostly because I keep a big cardigan/wrap on the back of my chair and use it whenever I get the chills. I would definitely not wear it out of the building, but welcoming clients and guests into the frozen tundra, aka the office, is a lot more comfortable in my big fluffy sweater.

So that’s what I’m looking at this summer. The lightest possible layers I can get away with. Oh, and my big fluffy sweater.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
