Clothes to Sweat In
On that note, when temperatures reach "frying like bacon", it really sort of takes away my desire, or even my ability to get fancy. Not that I have a particular need to be super-fancy in my life, but really, in hot climates even simple things like styling my hair or putting on makeup feels too fancy for me, so as you will probably notice in a lot of my warm weather posts, I just don't do it. In fact, that approach is sort of becoming my thing as I get older. If it's fussy, takes a lot of time, or requires a lot of steps, I'm probably just not going to do it. Period.
That's why this dress is nice. I found it in a small local boutique for around $30. Not a fortune, but not my usual seondhand price point either. I think it's supposed to be a beach dress. I fell in love with the color and when I tried it on realized just how handy it might be down here. It's essentially a big, gauzy, unfussy, textured tent that doesn't stick to you in the heat. As you can tell from my chipping toenail paint, lack of makeup, and un-styled hair, unfussy is something I hold in great esteem these days.
