Weekend Style | Dressing For Humid Weather

Goodbye sunshine and hello grey clouds, it's lovely to see you, not! Even though horrible grey clouds and rain have graced us with their presence it's still bloomin' hot. Oh heavy, humid weather, you are a pain to dress for. I'm really struggling to come up with outfit ideas to wear in this weather so with that in mind I've put together three different looks that I think are ideal for this humid, rainy weather that we're having.

Zara floral trousers and statement necklace

Outfit 1: Blue & White

This first look can be worn to pretty much anywhere; It would see you through a girlie shopping day, a lunch date or you could even dress it up a bit more with a pair of heels and a blazer. I've actually had my eye on these trousers from Zara for a while and I'm so tempted to buy them now that they're on sale from €39.95 to €22.99. You really can't beat the summer sales, so you can't. Sometimes it can be a bit hard to find nice things at this stage of the sales because the shops do be in a right state but places like Zara, Boohoo.com and New Look are having great online sales at the moment - It's definitely easier than sifting through lots of messy rails. 

Dress, leather jacket and floppy hat outfit idea

Outfit 2: Cool & Casual

Don't put your summer dresses away just yet, pair them with a leather jacket and a light pair of tights so that you're prepared for when the heavens decide to open. I've paired this black floppy hat with the outfit also to keep those stylish locks dry and frizz free. We don't want to look like Monica in the episode of Friends when they go to Barbados, now do we? This hat will keep you dry and looking fabulous and not to mention it's very Audrey Hepburn-esque. Just beautiful. As well as the hat, I'm also quite in love with this dress. I'm hooked on the daisy print after purchasing a pair of daisy printed shorts in Penneys which you can find in my holiday style diary post. I was looking at daisy printed dresses on Boohoo.com and I just couldn't help thinking that the print might be a bit too much  but I found the perfect solution when I stumbled across this number. I love that they've broken up the pattern by having the bottom half of the dress white; It has just the right amount of print without being too in your face. Love it.


Outfit 3: Keeping it simple

Anyone having a bbq anytime soon? I personally think that this is a lovely little bbq outfit. We're actually having one tomorrow (touch wood it doesn't rain or it'll have to be an inside bbq) and I might shop my stash to see if I have anything similar. For this look I wanted to keep it very simple and casual, so I decided to go for this chinois green maxi skirt from Vero Moda and paired it with this pink crochet hem t-shirt from New Look. In keeping with the simple theme I kept the accessories, you guessed it, simple, by adding the cute pendant necklace from River Island. If you're looking for a pair of converse but don't want to a pay fortune then you're in luck because Boohoo have a pair for only €15. All in all this look is just great for humid weather.

I love all of these looks so much that I'm tempted to buy half of these items. Writing these style posts are fun but dangerous for my bank balance! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend. I'm off to watch a movie and have some goodies. I do love the weekends. They're the best!

What have you been wearing during this humid weather? Which look is your favourite?

Love,
Cliona xx
