There is not a better way to describe the heat this summer other than blazing. On Saturday, the midwest got hit with a major heatwave where temperatures reached over 100 degrees while scorching heat down south is pretty normal. I took a trip home to Houston, Texas this weekend where I was abruptly hit with sticky humidity and still air. Luckily my hair was in braids so that alleviated a bit of heat panic but the jeans and leather pleated skirt I packed stayed in my suitcase the entire trip. Fortunately, I packed a chic white linen dress from the London supplier Bershka that saved my life this weekend.

The short off-the-shoulder dress served as the perfect light and easy-wear piece that you need in your summer rotation. I accessorized the dress with gold heels, layered necklaces, and the Telfar Shopping Bag. If you’re looking for textures that will keep you cool this summer, white linen will do the trick.
