Staying Cool In a Floral Open-Back Halter

Posted on 2 m read

Staying cool has been a challenge withΒ it being so hot outside in LA lately, especially during the day. I love summer but hate the dry eyes that I getΒ during this season. Half way through the day, I’ve already used 6 eyedrops in each eye… and still feeling miserable. I can barely keep my eyes open, and blinking actually starts to hurt. Anyone else experiencing severe dry eyes?! πŸ™ Anyways… back to the outfit:Β I stumbled across this floral open-back halter top from American Eagle on my shopping spree a couple weeks ago and felt it was the perfect top to wear on these scorching days. It doesn’t fix my dry eyes, but it definitely helps to keep me cool! I simply can’t get enough of a good open-back anything, and this top is no exception.

On hot days, I like to keep my outfit as simple and light as possible. While I love layering whenever I can, I decided to wear this top on its own. After all, what’s the point of an open-back top if you’re going to hide your back, right? Styled with a pair of shorts, comfortable loafers, and small purse, this look is easily a go-to on any summer day for me.

    This is such a cute look and I love your top! I’m not really a huge fan of the extreme heat either so I take the same approach to dressing on warm days!

      I grew up in the Bay Area where it was “cold.” LOL. I love warm weather which is why I moved to LA! When it gets over 90 degrees Fahrenheit though, it becomes too unbearable. So I totally know what you mean! But I also hate cold weather. When it comes to weather, I am totally high maintenance πŸ˜› Thanks for stopping by babe! xo
