How crazy was the heatwave last week? I know other parts of Australia have had a really hot summer so far but Melbourne is only now getting it's fair share. A whole week of 40°C+ days is quite enough but it looks like we have another hot week on our hands with yesterday reaching 42°C . The only way to cope is sitting in front of your AC on full blast, if you're lucky enough to have AC that is. Otherwise a fan, some ice and a super soaker are in order. But what about when you need to leave the comfort of your home or office? Dressing for extreme heat is no easy challenge but a floaty summer dress and some sandals are always a winning combo. I wore this outfit on one of the hottest days last week for a series of styling meetings where I still had to look like my usual fashion forward self even in the crazy heat.

The short sleeved dress was ideal for the 43°C heat and I just went all out with matching accessories that don't really add anything heat and sweat wise.

Outfit details
Floral dress City Chic Miss Polite Dress $129.95 AUD

My accessories perfectly matched the colours in the dress, even down to my Lime Crime lipstick.

My statement making bag is a new favourite and my coral shoes tied in nicely with the coral of my watermelon necklace.

How have you coped with the heat this summer?
