It's so hard to know what to wear when it's like this. Short skirts and shorts are great to a degree, but separates tend to get on my nerves a bit when I'm hot and sweaty. I feel like I'm being wrapped to tightly. What I tend to go for is a floaty maxi dress. Yes, it does mean more of you is covered, but you get a nice breeze around your (no! don't be dirty!) legs and if you like you can hitch it up a bit when you walk with your hand.. I do tend to do this!!
I have a few maxi dresses, but this is my favourite in hot weather because it's cotton, so doesn't add to the sweat! It's comfy, flattering and I don't have to wear a vest underneath because it doesn't cut too low - another bonus in the heat!

If I could change one thing about it, I'd like it to be longer. I'm not tall. I'm not even 5"2, but even still, it skims my ankles. This makes shoes a bit of an issue. I find even my Birkenstocks don't look right with it. They are the best I have, but I think it'd look better with some delicate flip flops or really flat sandals. I'll have to look out for something. The trouble is I need comfortable footwear because I do a lot of walking. When I've bought flipflops or thin sandals before they've either rubbed or broken really quickly. Any suggestions?
At first I added a scarf around my neck, but I was being silly, it was far too hot, so I kept it simple and just accessorised with jewellery.
