Fashion Over Reason: Black and white

Black and white

During the summer when it's scorching hot, you have to be extremely minimal when it comes to the clothing you put on your body.





Top - Gap
Shorts (diy) - Gap
Sandals - Spring

Ugh I totally agree I've been basically bordering on being a nudist lately, it's way too hot for clothes. Shorts and tanks, it's all you can really do. Thank God you look so cute in survival gear!

Love Alexandra

I feel you. It's been so hard to put on anything but casual easy dresses in the past couple weeks. I have to say that this heat has me looking forward to fall!

It was disgustingly hot today on my side of the country as well! I was changing and taking off clothes all day. I felt like a bit of an exhibitionist at times but was too hot to care. I love this look. It's so effortlessly chic! You look both classic and cool!! xx
