After today, there are only three more days of my style sudoku! Last Friday, I shared my first five outfits, and now I’m back with my second batch of outfits. As always, you can keep up in real time by checking out my Instagram stories (and I will eventually save them all to my Style Sudoku highlight).
OUTFIT 6 • Friday, July 12th
Friday was HOT, so I broke out another skirt outfit. The tee is linen, and the skirt is a linen blend. I expected there to be heat at some point during these two weeks, so that’s why I picked multiple linen items for my sudoku! I have to be honest… It was a little weird wearing my hat inside my office, lol. I kept it on when I was at my desk but took it off when I was walking around. It’s definitely more suited for the outdoors. ;) Korri and I ended up going out to lunch, and I had my hat on but it was a little difficult to eat pho with a big hat getting in the way!
Weather: 99°F (37°C), dry with a shower in the evening
OUTFIT 7 • Saturday, July 13th
Saturday started with a bike ride with my brother and his girlfriend to the farmer’s market. I didn’t wear this outfit because it would not have been comfortable for the ride, and I’m so glad I didn’t wear it because I sweat buckets. It was disgusting! I showered once we got back home and changed into this outfit to go out for happy hour. Since it was so hot, I ended up not wearing the cardigan out and just had it on at home (I’m the person that wears shorts and then curls up in a blanket on the couch because I’m cold, haha).
Weather: 98°F (37°C), dry with a shower in the evening
OUTFIT 8 • Sunday, July 14th
Korri and I went out to brunch late on Sunday morning, and it was poised to be another warm day (story of our lives in July!). I kept cool with my linen tee and shorts. My wedge sandals dress this look up a little bit as far as Boise standards go. ;) I didn’t do much of anything else until heading out to the grocery store later in the evening. A gust front from a distant thunderstorm blew through and kicked up dust right as I was leaving the store, so it was fun trying to stay upright and keep dust out of my eyes while walking to the car carrying all the groceries. Haha! I was glad I didn’t wear my hat outfit!
Weather: 94°F (34°C), dry with gusty winds in the evening

OUTFIT 9 • Monday, July 15th
I was supposed to be on a week-long work trip starting today, but it was cancelled at the last minute. That probably worked out better as far as doing my sudoku goes! I’ve worn this blazer and shirt combination before so I knew it would work well here, even if the chambray shirt is a little warm for 90-degree heat. I like how this outfit isn’t matchy-matchy in the slightest: all the colors go together, but none of them are exactly the same, and it keeps things interesting. I realized that I’m not a huge fan of wearing long tops with these pants because I feel like my legs look shorter than usual…
Weather: 91°F (33°C), dry with some wind in the evening

OUTFIT 10 • Tuesday, July 16th
I really like tucking this blouse into my boyfriend jeans, but it did not look this good in real life. Ha! The blouse didn’t stay tucked in the back for some reason, so I left it as a half-tuck. It’s a pain to get it just right, and using the restroom during the day didn’t help matters any. Wah-wah. I love pairing these jeans with these sandals, though. I wore this outfit with the hat (which I actually kept on for most of the day and got multiple comments on from coworkers…) because I got a massage and my hair always looks pretty gross after getting a head massage.
Weather: High of 86°F (30°C), dry
