It’s been a rainy stay here in New York. I could probably count the number of sunny days on both of my hands but only because I’d need two for the sixth finger. That’s quite a change from my Florida upbringing. I think it hit the 90s in March. That’s when I tried not to cry, bundled up in coat and scarf, while flipping through my friends’ SUMMER ‘09 <3<3<3 Facebook albums. I’m still trying not to.
But one thing all of my hot weather comrades can attest to (I’m lookin’ at you Australia!) is that dressing up for 90 degree weather is almost impossible when you have to focus on other, seemingly more important things like not dying of heat stroke. All I ever want to wear is tank tops and shorts but after perusing through the Style Gallery to get a few ideas for summer wear, I suddenly feel a sense of hope.
Since my summer is finally beginning, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite summer looks in hopes that we can all keep cool during these hot months.
Oh, and also, drink your orange juice.
1. presliad and the best use of a crop top over denim shorts that I have ever seen.
2. Noir in an unfussy denim romper. I am all for 1) unfussy and 2) rompers.
3. TheWildChild y’know, just chillin’ in open fields, keeping cool in breezy dresses. Ain’t no thang.
The next few days are going to be a little hectic for me as I leave for my trip to Chicago and move to Florida for my summer break! I’ll keep posting but please forgive me if I slack!
