Choosing the perfect outfit can be difficult during the summer because you have to dress both for the hot and humid outdoors and the heavily air conditioned indoors. On the weekends when you are running errands this especially is a problem because you are only spending a short time in the cool air conditioning before heading back out into the heat.
A lightweight long sleeve button up shirt keeps your arms warm inside and prevents them from becoming sunburned outside. You can also wear a tank underneath the shirt so you can easily remove a layer for extended periods of time in the hot sun.
Since a long sleeve shirt doesn't feel particularly summery, pair it with a pair of patterned shorts and a bright color of nail polish. You can also use your sunglasses to add an extra pop to your look. A large tote bag is great for keeping all your summer essentials, like a light sweater and sunscreen, at your fingertips. Choose a tote with a simple pattern so that it coordinates with even your most exciting prints. Then slip into a comfortable sandal and you will be set for all your weekend chores and fun!
