Fact: It is werk surviving a DC summer. Another fact: It’s even harder when you’re wearing 4 inch heels, toting a heavy bag around on the shoulder that’s not draped in your freshly dry cleaned blazer & trying your damndest not to perspire through your favorite silk top. The struggle is real. Especially if you’re a woman. in DC. in the dead of summer.
Why not make things easier on yourself? You deserve it and your closet & peers will thank you. Invest in a few staple pieces to get you through this swampy summer in style. & for the love of all that is good & holy, find an anti-perspirant that works for you. Secret Clinical’s Gel is the only stick that works for me. By introducing a few lightwear + colorful (yes, I said colorful) pieces into your wardrobe, you won’t have to look far for inspiration on those awful, humid days. How great does that sound? Rolling out of bed & falling into colorful separates that work. If you take the time to invest in these kinds of pieces, getting dressed will be that much easier (& fun!) every morning.
Give yourself a little cheat by remembering that accessories can change up any outfit. By adding tasteful jewelry & a blazer to a look, you can take it up a notch.
+ DS tip: I like to keep a few of my favorite blazers in my office so I’m not schlepping them around in the heat.
