Holy crap, you guys. It’s hot as balls outside. Not just a little warm, but full on “heat advisory” hot. I’m sure some people are laughing at us, in our little northeastern heat panic mode, but when you are not used to weather like this, it gets pretty bad. I opted for an outfit on the cooler side today. The skirt is black, yes, but it’s super silky to the touch. The long sleeves and the maxi skirt kept a lot of my body covered, which is better for me than tank tops and shorts in weather like this.
Accessories are minimal, because I didn’t really want anything huge or bulky hanging on my skin, getting sweaty and making me feel gross.
Socks! I’m a huge fan of wearing socks in hot weather. Some people I know wear next to nothing in the summer, eschewing things like socks, bras, and underpants, but I actually feel much cooler and much less sticky with good support.
