it’s true. the dog days of summer have arrived. can you believe it? august is more than half over… but if you are like me, you might be scratching your head as to how to stay cool, stylish and keep your look as fresh as a daisy. these days, even my potted plants are a little weary of summer. but take heart! when the going gets tough, i put a summer staple on repeat. today, i’m wearing a striped linen skirt you’ve seen several times before here on the blog. take a look at the last two photos to see how i styled it last august while living in san francisco, and earlier this year. skirts are a versatile staple in my closet, but i’m always racking my brain as to how to mix things up from time-to-time. sometimes, it’s as easy as exchanging shoes and handbag. other times, a jacket is swapped for a sweater. of course, don’t forget the transforming power of accessories – bracelets and earrings are icing on the cake. for a breezy ootd that easily keeps me looking fresh, i simply added a denim vest. it keeps the overall look polished, but casual. silver baubles, striped flats, and tote, and this outfit is in the books.

p.s. don’t forget to follow me on snapchat: styleatacertain. this is where you will find sneak peeks, and behind the scenes action. and when you send questions in i host a q&a session for those inquiring minds.
