Heat Wave Essentials

If there is one thing this summer has not lacked it is definitely heat and humidity. While the sun has not been overly present, the mercury on the thermometer has seem to have risen to new hots. Currently, a heat advisory is in place with a heat wave occurring over the next few days.

The most recent of heat waves has me thinking about how to stay (or attempt to stay) cool while remaining stylish at the same time. When it gets extremely hot, I am the biggest fan of tank tops. I will be taking advantage of a linen Dolce & Gabbana tank top that features a classic roman print that makes it a great statement piece.

Great sunglasses are always a summer must. Ditch the socks and loafers for a pair of sandals to keep cool and mix things up. Tip: use your cocktail shaker during the day for shaken iced nespresso has been used in full force recently!

How are you staying cool during the dog days of summer?
