heat wave

In case you haven't heard, I recently moved to Chicago! I love it here, but it's been insanely hot (tomorrow is supposed to be 104)! I'll be the first to admit that looking stylish in unbearable heat is not the easiest thing in the world, but it's doable. To avoid fuss, I usually like to wear a bold dress; that way there's no need to layer and I can wear minimal accessories. Today I wore a bright floral dress from H&M and paired it with flats, a statement necklace, and basic clutch.

    The dress is gorgeous!!!

    Please Gabi, I have this problem when I wear a dress. If I don´t have tights or shorts my inner laps (sorry, I don´t know how they are called properly) hurt so bad. Have you got any tip for wearing a dress with bare legs and don´t die trying?
