Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend, and to those in British Columbia, I hope you enjoyed your long weekend! I've been trying to keep cool in the heat wave we've been experiencing here in Vancouver, and dressing comfortably in such sweltering weather can be a challenge. I find that sheer silk fabrics like my tank and shorts are light and airy enough to wear during the hot summer days. What are your go-to items for staying comfortable in the summer heat?

PS: I was on the radio this morning for CBC Radio's The Early Edition program, Pinched, which you can catch right here! The segment is about how to make the most out of the summer sales. You can hear me at 5:34 :)

  7. Congrats on your radio feature, Marisa! I agree that silks are so ideal for hot summer days. The only bad part is keeping them fresh/dry cleaning... gets so expensive! I am liking how this casual look is infused with elegance and those House of Harlow sunnies look amazing on you!
