In this sweltering summer heat, it's tough to stay cool and look stylish, but Jenna managed to do just that. She looked so comfortable yet chic while she made her way through campus that I just had to stop to chat with her to see if she had any secrets about nailing a hot weather look.

Elements of Jenna's Outfit
1. Feather Earrings
These delicate, boho-cool earrings encompass the light and laid-back feel that Jenna loves to rock. The colors are unique, and perfectly complement the rest of her look.
2. Plaid Button-up
Jenna's plaid button-up adds both color and interest to her ensemble. She tied it around her waist, which is reminiscent of an on-trend '90s look, but it's easy to untie the top and pull it on if it gets cold. After all, classrooms are notoriously chilly!
Strappy sandals are the best accessory for your feet when the temperatures are rising. These casual sandals complement Jenna's easygoing sense of style, plus the dark brown hue means they can be paired with any outfit.
