I know, it’s hot out there and that terrible pain in your legs doesn’t help either. But you know what? You only need 3 things to feel better. And yes this chic red romper and luxe pool slides that I’m wearing here are two of them.
Are you already on your summer vacation or are you still trying to kill the heat in some pretty chilled place downtown? I’m actually in between places right now. Trying to find some shade on these narrow streets in Rovinj while on my vacation.
I probably don’t need to mention, I’m not one of those girls who would lie under the sun all day long. But saying it anyway, because it’s essential you don’t expose your skin to the sun all day long.
WHAT TO WEAR WHEN IT’S HOT
Anyway, beauty tips aside, I promise to be really short this time as I know it’s hard to hold a phone and read while slurping the cold cocktail on your floating swan in the swimming pool. I definitely don’t want you to drop your phone in the water.
Even though I can’t guarantee your phone will stay out of the water this time. Because you might just drop it when you see the price tag under that chic red romper.
And yes, the romper is just the outfit on the go you have been looking for these days. Believe me, no mini dress is better to wear in the heat than a romper. Explaining to you why, in a bit. But first where to get a chic romper like the one I’m wearing here.
SHOP AND WEAR MY VACATION LOOK
Well before that, the EDIT. Or your fashion cheat sheet that will make you pass any heat test. Because heat does seem like a test of nature sometimes, doesn’t it? It’s like nature was testing us on how much heat can we still resist.
Anway, be sure to save, pin and print this fashion cheat sheet to make sure you look fabulous this long warm summer. And yes, this EDIT is shoppable too. Which means you can shop this chic red romper, luxe pool slides, fancy bag, all the makeup, and the sun protection lotion simply by clicking on them. Touch the EDIT, and then click somewhere inside that pink frame. Once you do that, a link will take you to the store, where you can get that item.
I get a commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post.
Surely, if this sounds slightly too complicated to do in this heat, then just look for those items in the gallery under the EDIT. Or later in the text.
So, why to wear a romper and not a mini dress in this horrendous heat? Ha no, not because I’m wearing it. Even though thinking better this should be a fair reason enough. Nevertheless, there is another reason why to wear a romper and not a mini dress when mini lets the breeze get to your tights far better than a romper.
In short, you should opt for a romper this summer for two other reasons. Firstly because it’s in style for summer 2018 (I mentioned this in my Spring summer shopping guide here, and you have also seen it in my SS Trend Report over here).
Secondly, because you can wear it on the go. You can wear a romper everywhere but for work. Well, I wear it to work too. But I run a fashion business, so this doesn’t really count. Anyway, if you are a boss lady just like me, then check out how to wear a romper for work over here.
LUXE POOL SLIDES
Yes, I’m wearing pool slides. Well sort of. These are actually made of leather and come in lace and pearls, making them look like a legit luxe pool slides. You can get similar at Dolce & Gabbana (shop here) or fly to Slovenia to get mine.
And yes, the slides are another thing you need to feel better when it’s hot, and your legs are swollen. Remember I told you there were 3?
3 THINGS YOU NEED TO BEAT THE HEAT
So what are the 3 things you need to beat the heat, even more, to forget it’s hot and your legs are swollen? And yes, these 3 things work better an ice cream. Nevertheless, get an ice cream, too.
#1 THE ROMPER
Again, the romper. Not to say anything else, find your new romper in the widget below.
#2 LUXE POOL SLIDES
You didn’t think I swap the heels for luxe pool slides just because slides are in fashion this summer, did you? No no, far from that. My legs were just too swollen to fit any other shoes I packed for this vacation.
I guess that Megan Markle’s, pardon Dutchess of Sussex’s tip to wear a size up heels makes sense in the heat.
Still, since many fashion stylist cringe when they see someone wearing heels with shorts, pool luxe slides seem far better choice. Ps. You can wear playsuit with heels if you style them as I did here.
#3 COOLING CREAM FOR LEGS
Lastly, the cooling cream for legs. Actually, a cooling cream for swollen legs is all you need. You know, once your legs get cold you won’t feel the heat at all.
Here are some of the cooling creams I like. I always take the one from Origins (shop here) with me when I travel because it works instantly. But I somehow misplaced it in my suitcase this time. And couldn’t use it before taking these photos. Yes, that is why my legs are slightly swollen. Anyway, I just ordered this cooling oil in a rollerball (shop here), so I can wear it in my purse all the time.
