A Tropical Heatwave

The lady on the left, snapped by Stylesightings, is wearing my ideal of a summer outfit. I really admire people who manage to stay elegant even in the hottest months. Also, she seems to be channeling one of my favorite actresses Audrey Tautou.

"We're having a heatwave,
A tropical heatwave,
The temperature's rising,
It isn't surprising,
She certainly can, can-can!
Her anatomy makes the temperature rise to 93!" --lyrics from Heatwave, Irving Berlin

  1. I can only dream of worrying about how to dress in a heatwave..the English weather is always so rubbish. I do love to wear twirly skirts and pretty sandals and vests though. And NO tights!

  15. Ooh! Audrey! LOVE her! A few nights ago I watched 'Ensemble C'est Tout' (ie. title translated to 'Hunting & Gathering' for English speaking countries), loved it, as I do all movies with her (except for Da Vinci Code, eek) :) Her dress briefly reminded me of your gorgeous butterfly dress I love.
    Have a great weekend!

  34. Fabtastic. The Audrey Tautou Chanel No 5 advert is so so so beautiful, I just want to be her!!!! It's Jean-Pierre Jeunet who directed it too, a great combinaison!

    ReplyDelete

  37. I have yet to master the looking-chic-while-it's-hot-out thing as well! Once the weather gets unbearably hot, it's difficult to think of a good outfit.

    But you're right about the girl on the left wearing an ideal summer outfit - the white tank and the big floppy hat are both chic and practical pieces!

    And Audrey Tautou is always adorable.

  38. Love that hat! And Audrey is incredibly fun and cute!

    ReplyDelete
  39. i love the hat and i love audrey! although, she will always be amelie to me

    ReplyDelete
  40. I absolutely love Audrey Tautou. I haven't seen Amelie in way too long.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love that outfit! The texture of her skirt looks like its really comfortable to wear! I don't really think I could ever manage to look this elegant in a summer outfit *sigh*

  42. i am in loveeeee with that skirt. everything about it is perfect the hue of the denim, the length and most importantly the buttons. J'adore.
