black, white, and summer heat

{Top, Thrifted; Skirt, Random Boutique; Shoes, Aldo; Rosary Necklace, Forever 21; Bandeau, Free People}

Remember what I said about June Gloom? Well I’m eating my words now. A heat wave has swept over southern California, which definitely has its pros and cons.

Pros:
+ I get woken up by the sun instead of my alarm clock; there’s nothing like slowly being pulled out of dreams by a stream of sunlight
+ I can go to the beach from 9AM to 6PM without ever getting cold
+ I get to wear backless tops and bandeaus like this one

Cons:
-My wardrobe is growing smaller and smaller as I’m limited to heat-tolerant pieces
-Staying in the sun all day leaves me with little energy for other aspirations
-Even in outfits like this one, sweating is inevitable (not cute)

Another thrift store purchase, I love this top for it’s open, bedazzled back. Whenever I put it on I can’t help but think “business in the front, party in the back”. I’m aware it might be sac-religious to buy a rosary at Forever 21, but I think all rosaries are beautiful. I love the 80’s Madonna-vibe this one adds.




What outfits do you turn to in sweltering summer heat?

    Hahahaha, this is totally a mullet shirt! But way better looking then a mullet, obvi. I try and wear clothes that breathe and I try to avoid sleeves. Its a heat wave in nyc now and I’m on the verge of running out of things to wear in this weather!

    xoxo, Ashley

    I love this summer outfit! And I’m more than a little jealous that you get to bask in the sunshine while I freeze my royal ass off in San Francisco’s gloomy July weather. Who cares if your closet gets smaller, that makes it easier to get dressed in the morning!
