Summer in Spain - What to wear when it's too warm outside

I can't believe I'm back to the blogosphere and I'm able to -finally- state that I've finished successfully this uni year! I can assure you that I've fought and struggled very much, and always tried my best to achieve the goals I set at the very beginning of the year. Finally and luckily, I will be leaving for my last year in Italy very soon for an Erasmus year abroad which I couldn't be more excited about.

But, before that, I've still have plenty things to do here in Spain! It's been a harsh Summer start, dealing with super hot temperatures outside while dealing with the last hints of my final project deadline these past weeks. Spain has been under quite a big heat wave for about two weeks, and I can't help but keep thinking about what I will be wearing to my newly and sudden Summer internship on a local architecture studio (fingers crossed! Looks like there's plenty of work to do!). If as a rule it's a pretty serious issue to deal with weather in the Spanish coast, just imagine how hard it is to figure some fresh, summery outfits when we're under a very Spanish Summer.

So, today I partnered with Lightinthebox to show you how to wear a maxi dress under very warm weather and still survive the Summer crazy temperatures. I picked this lovely blue boho inspired dress which has this tiled pattern inspired by Portuguese painted ceramic walls. Although it has long sleeve, it's made out of a silky, slippery fabric similar to chiffon which makes it pretty en pointe for Spain's summer temperatures. It comes with a lining covering the whole bodice and reaching to knee-length, and a zip from the waistline up to the neck. This maxi dress just seemed the perfect match for a summery evening in Valencia enjoying ice-cream with friends on a terrace, or even for a casual day at work as it's very easy to pair with some wedges or flat sandals when on a rush. I just have to point out that I'm a regular size M-L (EU 40) and I had to order an XL as it runs pretty small. My advice for ordering clothing on the Internet is to, ALWAYS MEASURE YOURSELF and double check your measurements if possible!

That said, and to end today's post, I would like to write down some advice on how to dress up to fight against warm temperatures outside:

  • Choose light fabrics, and go for natural, breathable fibers if possible. Chiffon, light cotton, linen and rayon among others may work pretty well.
  • Keep in mind the fit. Loose, baggy fits let your skin breath more and better. Flowy dresses like the one I'm featuring on this post are a nice idea!
  • Sometimes, longer clothes work better. Why do I prefer long but light pants instead of short-shorts? I hate it when my thighs get stuck and glued into chairs or even worse, stick together, which ultimately cause super uncomfortable scratches. Instead, I go for longer dresses on which I can sit literally; or knee-length short jeans which look pretty casual with sneakers and sandals #kneelenghtrespect
  • Avoid fabrics that stick to your body.
  • Swap your huge tote bag for a cross-body, lighter bag. This will keep you from fainting when doing some sightseeing under the Tuscan sun :)
  • Accessorize! Floppy straw hats are the coolest, and bandanas might help your hair -and sweat- stay out of your face.
