Hot Hot Heat

After visiting June Shin's and Sally Jane Vintage's blogs I know I'm not the only one looking forward to fall weather and fall fashion. Unfortunately, living in the south I won't be able to wear any autumn fashions until late October. I have at least two more full months of shorts and tank top wearing. I'm not happy about this, but I'm going to try to make the best of it. The two street style shots below are helping me get re-energized about summer style.



Photos from Altamira, NYC and Face Hunter.

I love seeing how other people deal with the heat and keep stylish. I'm not quite ready to give up my summery weather though!

Stephanie said...

I live in Florida and I am ready to put on some fall fashion also. Well, technically I could now but I might pass out from heat exhaustion. :)

(On second thought maybe heat exhaustion deserves a sad face.) :(

Sharon Rose said...

Hi girls-this 1st dress is really cute!!

cupcakes and cashmere said...

both of these looks are fantastic! i especially like the girl on the right with her layered tanks and headband, so chic!

pearl said...

I'm looking forward to fall fashion too, but still holding onto the last moments of summer. Love the 2nd pic inspiration!

Tina :) said...

I am very much looking forward to fall fashion as well. However, I do like taking advantage of the last moments of summer.
I love the second outfit!

Jill, I think I'd like summer more without the humidity - it's so thick here!

Stephanie, you are too funny! Yep heat exhaustion does deserve a sad face.

Sharon Rose, I love it too. Maybe I'll find something like it when i go thrifting.

cupcakes and cashmere, i know! I wish I could look so stylish when it's so hot out!

Pearl, I suppose I'll be complaining about the cold in the winter, so I should enjoy the summer!

Tina, you're not alone. That look seems to be the favorite of the two.

Annie said...

I see why! I'm loving both those looks! Although, does girl #2 have pants on? To me, that's a little odd-looking with all those layers on top. :]

Key said...

i know what you are talkin about... i can wear summer-y outfits almost the whole year...
i can´t wear fall fashion until late december!!! life is unfair :(

Clare said...

I love the girl on the right. Her style is so laid back and comfy looking. :)

Shen-Shen said...

I think I would enjoy living in the south.. I love hot weather, although I too am aching for some fall layering..

I love the girl on the right's outfit!

Secretista said...

No Fall fashion until October?!

...sorry. Haha, jk. I love cold weather but I do like wearing nothing but dresses and sandals.

we wear things said...

i crave for fall layering and jackets.. we won't have that til late october.. if we're lucky.. but i feel i better get the most out of dangerously short skirts and shorts while i can. lol. just like these inspirational shots.

Terren said...

i love that girl's smile! (on the right)

Nay'Chelle said...

Great photos. seeeing others dress wel during hte summer inspires me to try harder to not fall into a sumemr dressing slump.

The Clothes Horse said...

I like these as well! Part of me is longing for tights and the other part is longing for ultra casual looks I can't wear to work! Ah, life...

Marilynn said...

I love summer, the bright clothes just make me happy...just like that first dress. Plus I'll take any reason to be able to wear mini-dresses. (Believe it or not, I actually turned an old band sweatshirt into a dress for summer and the beach)

I love these looks - unfussy and chic!
I know what you mean about being sick of summer, but I will join you and try to rally . . .

I haven't had much time wearing summer clothes so in a way you are lucky.
I love these pictures!

holy crap, i've always considered myself an "asian cajun" (korean by birth, went to school at tulane in new orleans) and i happened across your site. good to know other fellow asians out there with some respect for good ol' cajun cooking.

I definitely know how you feel about the upcoming autumn season. It'll be a nice fashion change, but since I live in Southern California, "autumn" doesn't really come until October.

Loving the second shot though. Her layering is perfect.

Cammila said...

I'm excited about fall fashion too. Except I know I'll get sick of the chill eventually, so I'm trying to enjoy the sweltering weather -- with limited success.

Danz said...

I always get excited about fall fashion even though it's pretty impractical wear on an island.

I LOVE jackets, coats, wool scarves, tights and gloves but I have to wear them at night because it's just too hot to wear them during the day!

sydneydoll said...

i LOVE hats.

enc said...

We are just now getting a bit of heat. Second day in a row of 75+ degree temps. I can't think about fall yet either, as we'll be warm for about two months too.

I always wonder how people manage to look crisp and cool like these girls you pictured.

Songy said...

incredibly happy and relaxing shots. I specially like the second pic. yeah we always long for the next season during season's end. seemingly it drags on and on. While you're waiting for Fall I'm hanging out for Spring here and there is no sign of getting warmer.... ^__^

hope all of us could enjoy the remainder of the season!

ciao

Oh god, the weather is so unbearable~~ at least it rained today so hopefully it'll cool down. I get so jealous looking at Copenhagen Street Style and Oslostil and seeing girls in tights and sweaters.

~Jay~ said...

ivoreece said...

It's so nice to have so much sunny days!!! I wish I lived there.
And I'll wear my fall clothes soon :(
