Guest post - The Dog days of summer

My guest today is also the gal who won my giveaway in June, the fantastic Jess from J's Style.  I find Jess and I have a similar approach to summer style and I wish she didn't live in Ohio because I think we'd have fun sitting back and drinking a beer together.  Anyway, here she is talking about those darn dog days of summer.  Oh and PS - we swapped today - so I'm guesting over at HER blog.  Go check it out!

Hi everyone! I’m Jess from over at J's Style where I blog about the outfits I wear when sweatpants just aren’t socially acceptable. :) I think Beth and I share somewhat of a dislike for extreme heat, so I’d like to share a little bit about how I’ve kept as cool as possible this summer!

In the past, I’ve gotten through work during the summer by rotating between khakis and dress pants, and adding a cute tank top with a cardigan or blazer layered on top. Simple enough, right? Then my work decided to move to a building that claims to have functioning air conditioning, that’s questionable! The use of cardigans and blazers would be asking for heat stroke. My solution? T-shirts. Lots and lots of t-shirts. They can easily go with pants or skirts, and I’ve spent the summer adding fun accessories to help me feel like I haven’t lost my sense of personal style!


  1. How cute that you guys swapped blogs for the day! Haha about your mutual distaste for the heat. My office a/c doesn't work that well either!

  2. I love your relatable sense of style, Jess! The tee is a staple piece of summer. So easy to dress up with accessories. And it's also incredibly easy and effortless. I have to agree with you ladies - the heat is no fun!


  3. I've definitely been trying to remix tees and tanks this summer. It's been so hot, but keeping things interesting with easy to wash pieces is difficult. Natural fibers definitely helps.

  4. Cute outfits. Nice use of color.

  5. Wow, she's got really great remixing and sense of style! I totally love it. Gotta check out this new blog :)

  6. Love the fact that she remixes her t-shirts. Sometimes we forget how stylish a tee can be just by adding a few accessories! Plus, I love finding other bloggers from Ohio :) Heather


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
