Summer Style (You know, other than sweat)

Style, Living WellAngelina OberdanComment

It is hot as heck outside in North Carolina right now. And I'm just saying that besides my peeling sunburn (Oops, I really did wear and reapply sunscreen.) and sweat, sometimes I actually want to look nice. 

Getting dressed in the summer is hard. I much prefer winter, when I want to wear something other than gym shorts. I do teach summer classes, so I don't have the whole summer off. I also have a lot of time to work out, so some days there's not a lot of point to getting dressed. So, even though, I'm unmotivated, I rule summer style, and this is how. 

1. I have a few basic skirts that I cycle through. 

Most of my skirts are from Modcloth.com or from Target. There's absolutely no need to pay a lot for summer skirts, especially if they're cotton. 

2. I can wear all of my summer shirts/blouses with a sports bra. (Because who wants to put on a real bra, anyway?)

No really. That's how I picked out my summer tops. I also picked up a handful of racer-back undershirts at target to hide any sports bra straps. 

3. I stick to really basic and light jewelry. 

Obviously, I love my Chloe and Isabel jewelry, and you can check out the summer styles here

4. I wear Ssekos. 

OMG. Have you heard of Ssekos? They're the best. 

5. I keep all of my workout clothes in my car because in the summer, you have to be flexible. 

Yes, this means my car smells a little bit, but I'm already ready to swim, run, or head to a yoga class. 

So this is what two of my summer outfits look like: 

I like my homemade clothes last year, but I didn't have time this year to make my own outfits. (To read about my DIY T-Shirt adventure from last year, click here.)
