MAKING LIGHTWORK OF SUMMER HEAT

With February being the hottest month one has to find shelter in light clothing that breaths and doesn't cling. I stumbled across this top that has two openings where the arms should be, leaving you quite confused where to place your limbs! However, it is quite versatile, with a zillion pleats allowing you to fold it over and over again, making it shorter as you go. The permanent pleats just simply drapes into a fold, making it rather fanciful and interesting. You could simply  slip into it as it is, and wear it as a dress, or keep on rolling it up into folds to wear it as a shorter top. Whatever way you choose, it just drapes into whatever shape you want and leaves plenty of room to move around. I can just imagine wearing it with a light oversized coat and high heels for a more sophisticated look. I'd call this top "fabric engineering".

  3. What an amazing piece. I like when you can change it to something else. Very nice. You look great. When it gets colder, I'd like to see it as a dress with coat and heels - my favourite.

  4. I like your top, has a lovely color and a really curious design. The oversize volume takes nothing away of elegance and has a very nice look. The pants are very nice and the necklace is cute.

    1. Thank you Annette, I haven't blogged about these shoes before, but have a similar pair in Black that I've shown before. However, the Mary Jane style is what caught my attention, and they are remarkably comfortable for the height!
      Have a great weekend!

  8. You look absolutely mesmerizing with that outfit! It's breezy and light, which is perfect for the summer heat. It certainly does not sacrifice convenience for glamour, you're still able to get out in the heat with style! But for me, staying indoors and basking on an air-conditioned room is the best way to beat the heat. Stay beautiful, Nicolene!
