Beating the subway sweat

Today I had another interview in Manhattan and the thermometer was hovering around 90 degrees F and I knew that I'd have to take the subway after riding my bike to the train station. I also knew it was going to be a long hot walk back home afterwards. I made sure to layer my clothes accordingly.
Appropriate meeting attire:
H&M safari jacket, Gap Body tee shirt, Gap skirt, Liz Claiborne handmedown shoes, Longchamp bag
This is what I had hiding in my purse:
Vintage scarf, thrifted belt, Steve Madden sandals
For traveling to and from the interview I made sure to tie my hair back to keep cool.
H&M racer back tank, Gap skirt & accessories from above plus my Ray Bans
I put these items in my bag and surprisingly they barely took up any space.
