Some of my favorite things to wear when it's hot outside but freezing inside the classroom are chiffon, light knits, and skirts. You know when your thighs get sticky on the plastic chairs on your desk? Disgusting. It's because they make shorts so freaking short nowadays. I recently bought a pair of comfy Hollister shorts that are supposed to be "midi" length... but I think they're the shortest pair I own lol. So there you go. Skirts are great when it's hot because they're probably longer than most shorts you own, but they're nice and breezy so you don't get hot. I also regret not collecting a few more chiffon shirts this summer, but I don't think I'll get much use out of them when it starts getting colder anyway.
It was on the chillier side this morning (today was only 91 degrees... compared to the 100+ expected later this week T_T) so I opted for my midi high-low skirt and this 3/4 sleeve knit top whose color I am in love with (it's a bit greener irl). I love this outfit because it's casual and feminine but totally comfortable.
Personally, I don't feel comfortable "trying too hard" with what I wear to school; I always choose something simple and practical. Whenever I'm not posting here (which is like 350/365 days of the year?), I literally just wear something along the lines of jeans and a t-shirt lol. I'm making a personal goal to make my outfits a little more special with accessories but still keep things simple.
