104... Ugh! It's so hard to get dressed when it's boiling outside and all the magazines show long coats and fuzzy boots - but it's better when there are a few trends that you can participate in. For this outfit, I was able to get on board with "guitar strap" handbag straps!

Brands like Valentino and Rebecca Minkoff are selling awesome "crossbody straps" for hobos and feed bags that range from about $100 to $1200 - but here I'm sporting a vintage embroidered "camera strap" that I got of Ebay for $10. This style has been around forever, so there are plenty of color combinations and styles to choose from, both used and new.

The best part? The bag strap does not add any extra heat!!
