Difficult choices

Parties and special occasions in the summer are always hard, as you never fully know how to dress. You want to keep your outfit formal, stylish, chic, but don't want to sweat too much! I had a similar problem last weekend when attending my Grandmother's birthday party. It seemed windy, but really hot and the celebrations were held outside with coffee and later a dinner as well. I decided to go for pants and a pretty top. Even though the black slacks were quite hot during the afternoon hours, they kept me warm during dinner and drinks later. 



To cool off for a bit, I walked barefeet in the grass for some time in the afternoon. I love breaking the rules :) The flowers in my Grandparents' garden were a wonderful background for my outfit pictures. Most of my family members are used to my outfit shoots by now, but some neighbours still gave me the looks - or maybe it was the bare feet!



Great drinks!




What I wore

Pants: Long Fashion
Top: H&M
Cardigan: Bon Prix
Scarf (as a belt): USA
Brooch & Clutch: Heirloom from Grandma
Bracelet: South Africa


What do you do to cool off during more formal events?
