When the heat is starting to get to you, the best way to cope is to wear something comfortable. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for tiis-ganda but when you’re sweating like a pig (even if it’s a very cute pink pig), I doubt you’ll find anything beautiful about that. You can look every bit as fashionable anyway in weather-appropriate and practical clothes. When I say weather-appropriate, I mean ready-to-jump-in-the-pool-in-this-heat type of outfit, which is why I’m wearing a swimsuit. (Can’t get more weather-appropriate than this, don’t you think?) But of course, I can’t walk around the city in this swimsuit alone. (Only superheroes can dress like that.) So in order to look respectable, I styled my multi-way swimsuit (yes it’s even more awesome because it’s multi-way) with a pair of roomy culottes (ventilation, ventilation, ventilation) and Mishka sandals (comfort, comfort, comfort). Did I mention my sandals are foldable too? (Again, more awesome.)
To finish off my look, I grabbed my latest favorite backpack from British brand Beara Beara (from whom you can get 15% off using my discount code “camilleco15″). This beautiful backpack is not only hand-made genuine leather but is also customized with my initials. (Again, more awesome. Awesome is apparently today’s favorite word.) The result? Summer-ready, fuss-free and still fashionable!
