It's near impossible to find motivation to wear anything remotely interesting when the weather "feels like 103 degrees" (according to the weather man) but there are creative ways around it. Light layers is probably the smartest thing to do, adding the effect of depth to an outfit without suffocating under a leather jacket or cardigan.
I've been switching between plum and red lipstick, and maybe adding mascara. For one thing, it feels gross and vaguely overdone to slather on eyeshadow and mascara etc in the summer. For another, Nicole Fox rocks heavy matte red lips and pale eyes in the fall Wildfox video and it's amazing.
