Fashion Over Reason: This heat wave is bananas

This heat wave is bananas

I don't exactly know what one is supposed to wear when the temperature rises to 40 degrees celsius. Ladies (and gents?), that is indeed what happened in Paris yesterday and it was absolutely suffocating. You know when your "refreshing" glass of sauvignon becomes a lukewarm grape consommé before you even take the first sip? The way to wing it: wear super light flowing and loose clothing ONLY. In my dream palette, of course. (And you'll have to excuse my disheveled mane, for heat reasons mentioned prior)

Zara top, old h&m shorts, Calvin Klein bra, Nine West wedges, Bottega Venetta bag

can it be of any consolation ( don't think so! ) the temperature rose to 40 degrees celsius in here too ( near Milan ).. to survive, my picks were jeans shorts ( and when i say short...i really mean it. The shortest shorts you can imagine :D ) and grey cotton tank saying "I'm a Voguette".
