Hi, everyone! Let me start by introducing myself: My name is Kristen, but everybody calls me KiKi. I manage a style blog called Cats in My Closet and am launching a fashion magazine called Monachopsis in the fall. I also moonlight as a fashion stylist and, on occasion, have done some freelance writing, most notably for Charleston City Paper and Charleston Grit. Oh yeah, and I wear a lot of wigs.
I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Holly & Dandy Boutique on several posts for my fashion website, and when she reached out to me about becoming a regular contributor for the Dandy blog, I absolutely leapt at the opportunity! On my way to the store to pick up outfits for my first post (a fairly quick walk from my office), I came to the realization that it’s incredulously hot outside. Like, nearly 100 degrees hot. When did that happen?!
Now I don’t know about the rest of you, but once the temperature creeps in the 90s, my main priority is trying to figure out how to wear as little clothing as possible while also avoiding sunburn. It’s all about ease and, most importantly, comfort, so I’ve showcased three effortless outfits below that are ideal for the steamy summer months.
