Summer Heatwave Essentials
August 8, 2018
In the past couple of months, the summer heatwave has been real. I’ve seen people on their InstaStories begging the season Gods to bring Autumn already. However, we just had our close friends visiting from Sydney who have since returned to low 40s where the only way to stay warm indoors is to remain wrapped up in winter coats, sweatpants and UGGs (despite them not actually being an Australian company!). So, for the time being, I’m quite happy to power through a long-lasting heatwave in order to continue topping up my tan & vitamin D levels before Autumn rolls around. This means, existing in little to nothing to make it through the day without leaving sweaty bum marks everywhere (I know this happens to you too!).
This Reformation off-the-shoulder top keeps me cool while allowing for the sun to kiss my shoulders and hopefully balance out the 4 different bikini tan lines I’ve got going on. Vintage high-waisted Levis and my first pair of Nomadic State of Mind sandals keep the look perfectly casual for a stroll around the neighborhood to hang off lamp posts. You know, the ush.
As a vampire who lives indoors, working from home, in a poorly-lit space, soaking in the sun (safely) is a major boost for my emotions. I’ve found myself wanting to play tennis more, go for walks, or even join Eddie on his runs when I’m feeling brave. Summer has been good to me this year and I’m definitely not ready for it to disappear just yet. A chop of my locks has also done me wonders for majorly easy hair styling that keeps me feeling cool and looking cool 😉
What’s your go-to summer essential? A loosely fitting dress? A big floppy hat? I’d love to know what you do to stay comfortable and cool during a heatwave!
