when the temperature rises it’s time to shed the layers and stay cool. having lived in a tropical climate for the better part of ten years i’m an expert when it comes to beating the heat. skirts are a must as well as sleeveless tops. cotton tees, shorts, and yes, even laid back chinos can keep you looking stylish when the thermometer creeps past eighty. i love the color scheme of my outfit today. mustard and khaki paired with a metallic sandal. a bold necklace and bracelets complete the ootd, and i’m ready to catch a baseball game or lunch alfresco.
