Too Darn Hot (See Jane Barely Wear)

Rory Beca dress (old, but newer version here), F21 shirt (similar), Pour la Victoire wedges, Super sunglasses, Mulberry bag (now on sale)

The best way to re-use a semi-formal dress?  Put a shirt over it and knot it.  The best way to keep cool on a summer day that hits a record high?  Wear said semi-formal dress to work because it’s the lightest, most breathable silk ever (and put a shirt over it, because said semi-formal dress is backless).  Check out how I topped this dress with chambray last summer.

  1. Totally with you on this! I've been wearing a lot of fancy-looking, chiffon-y dresses to work lately because they are the coolest, lightest things in my closet. My co-workers probably think I'm overdoing it. And I love freshening up an old piece by knotting a shirt over it. This is so pretty!

  3. Oh my gosh this is such a great way to style a formal dress again! I have such a hard time figuring out how to wear my formal dresses more often.
