it’s been hot here.
like – stupid out-of-character-for-june hot. the last few weeks have had a heat index of over 105 and you basically walk outside and feel like you’re walking through a swimming pool, it’s been lovely.
as a native charlestonian i’ve long since learned to embrace the humidity and the feeling of back sweat – it’s just a part of our lovely life. what i have never been able to fully embrace is rompers.
i just didn’t understand them – and all that i tried on let me looking, well, like an overweight kid during their awkward years. recently i saw a friend of mine wearing this sweet romper that i kind of fell in love with – i asked her where she got it and immediately went to try it on.
it was like cinnamon toast crunch fell from the sky.
it fit perfectly!
it took a few weeks to actually build up the courage to wear it – i guess shorts and pale legs and being comfortable in your own skin can take a while – especially on a fashion trend that has never worked in the past. since that first outing – this is my go to outfit for warm days where i still want to look cute.
i was also a little leery about wearing the hat (for the record i own a LOT of hats, but rarely wear them because a hat + curly hair = horrible hat hair). i’ve since let go of that care and embrace the hat and all of it’s lovely shade it has to offer!
p.s. anyone else notice that huge crack in the foundation of my house?
yikes – i need to get that checked!
