Since we first caught wind that summer was in the air, the people of Toronto couldn't stop complaining about the temperate weather that we had been getting. Well ask and ye shall receive, because this weekend was a doozy. Temperatures soaring in the high 30 degrees Celsius (That's 86+ degrees Fahrenheit for my american friends), and humidity to boot.
I just want to put out there that I never complained. I was actually enjoying the breezy, moderate days that we've been getting in Toronto, so when the heatwave hit it was hard not to believe that I was actually melting. During the heat of the summer I will choose my lightest and simplest pieces, keep my accessories to a minimum with just a straw hat and will actually wear sandals. Stylish or trying to keep my sanity as I melt into a puddle of mush I'm not sure, but I do love the combination of cobalt blue and a straw hat.
|Dress - French Connection (old), Sandals - Asos
Straw Hat - purchased at the Kensington Market, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff
I actually acquired this straw hat in Toronto's Kensington Market, and it hasn't left my head since I first bought it. I'm usually one to chose a hat with a large , floppy brim but I'm actually enjoying the structure of this fedora. The fact that it's made of straw makes it perfect for this sort of weather, and gives any outfit the feel of exploring while on a tropical vacation, instead of just speed-walking in the shade to get back to the air-conditioning of my condo (my life.)
Did you guys experience the same heatwave that we did this weekend? How do you dress to keep cool in the warmer temperatures and humidity?
