I hate to be a cliche but I am not a fan of hot weather. The combination of pale skin and a body that is always warm does not make summer a very pleasant experience for me. Weirdly enough when I was in Italy I was OK but here, I just melt- perhaps it's the humidity that I have a problem with?! Unfortunately I can't use my time-tested method of lying in a cool dark room and eating ice-cream during the week so I have to find suitable outfits for work, never an easy task when it is 27 degrees outside! For me, sleeveless dresses, leggings and sandals have been the perfect combination in the heat this year. I last wore this mint dress back in May last year and I couldn't believe how short it was when I tried it on again this week. I am all for comfort but without leggings, I think this would be far too short to be decent!

Pale gold nail varnish is my go to colour for the summer, it's one of those colours that looks good however tanned (or pasty!) you are. This is 'Angel Nails' by Max Factor , a colour I like so much I have re-bought it at least 4 times...
I had been wanting to buy these sandals for months but every time I tried, they went out of stock which really isn't surprising. They look super sleek and are really comfy now I have broken them in. The first time I wore them I got a huge blister on the bottom of my foot but luckily that has disappeared now!
How do you dress for the heat?
