Style Peek: Be Cool

Our scorching weather continues! Today was +33 and it felt like an oven outside - pretty awesome! But definitely a challenge to stay cute without looking like a drowned rat. This mean hair OFF THE FACE. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. This is a non-negotiable for me in this weather. Bare arms, legs and toes help too! We have wicked wonderful air conditioning at work so the cardi is a must for layering. But once I stepped outside...that baby was off!! 

Of course I am forever grateful to Fusion for having such a flexible dress code that I can wear this to the office.

I tried out a new hairstyle that I found on Cupcakes and Cashmere. You braid both sides of your hair like you're doing two french braids but stop midway and tie them. Then gather all the hair into a low bun. I'm liking the extra texture it gives around the face.

What do you wear to beat the heat friends? I'm thinking of all of you down in Florida and the rest of the southern US...I feel for ya in this heat!

Have the most amazing long weekend and talk to you soon!
