What i wore: Sheer Maxi

I love summer sun but lets just admit it that sweating from a heat wave isn't the cutest. I always gravitate towards simple and chic pieces for an outfit to stay cool in the heat. I decided to pair my sheer maxi skirt (seen on my most recent summer haul) with a basic tank top and balance the look with my favorite vintage belt.

Since the outfit is pretty muted with my classic black and taupe, i added an arm full of brightly colored bracelets for color and fun! As much as i love the current color trends, black will forever be my staple go-to color. So to stay trendy and at the same time add color to my wardrobe i use a lot of colored, statement accessories. It's such an easy way to change the look of basic pieces!

I'm not the biggest fan of wearing a lot of makeup during the summer but there's always tricks to creating a natural summer look without overdoing it. For my makeup i decided to go with a dewy, summer glow look and to help the makeup last under the sun and heat, always remember to set your makeup!
