   Truth be told, I don't really have any EOTDs to share right now. ATM, my life consists of waking up and going to the gym with an occasional run to Target. Hardly blog-worthy. Let's not forget to mention that this Canadian doesn't even want to leave the well air-conditioned apartment. I used to think all this heat and humidity was funny, now it's just getting old and killing my fashion sense. What do I wear on those Target runs while the temps have been hitting 100F (39C)+ with the addition of some ridiculous humidity? It goes something like this:

Hat: Goorin Brothers Hammond Fedora (Khaki, size S).
Sandals: Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent Dinah Sandals (Chartreuse, size 6) (similar here and here).
Blouse: Jacob Sleeveless Bow Blouse (without the bow) (White, size XS) (similar here and here).
Belt: H&M Leather belt (Light brown, size XS).
Watch: Michael Kors Runway Watch (Silver).
Bracelet: H&M Men's Leather Cuff (Dark Brown).
Necklace: Forever21.
Shorts: Abercrombie & Fitch Denim Shorts (Medium wash, size 00) (similar here).

    The variations include a t-shirt and a tank and a pair of Converse on my feet. After living in DC for over three years, I still have no idea how to deal with hot and balmy weather. I used to keep myself looking somewhat fashionable and put together with scarves and blazers when I lived in the more northern areas that don't get as much heat and the humidity isn't as high or frequent. But now? Those items never work--I learned the hard way.  My beloved tanks and cut off jean shorts are all I care for if I don't need to be anywhere. 

What do you reach for when it's hot out and you have nowhere important to be?

Hello, Framboise! said...

Cute outfit! You look very chic despite the heat. I like the fedora--they're great for keeping your head cool and your eyes shaded.  

My favorite thing to wear when it's hot out are breezy, lightweight summer dresses--the lighter, the better--or lightweight rompers.

I love those shorts on you!

I actually had to make my Target run today and wore a pair of cut-offs from AF, as well. :)

Cute and summery.  I am thinking of cutting up an old pair of jeans to make denim shorts similar to the ones you are wearing :)

You look cute in this outfit! Just better wear less in these weather... I agree. I'm used to the heat and more humidity thanks to my hometown, now I'm mainly wearing dress to safeway when just so hot.
