Bag from Mingei World Arts in Decatur.
Hotlanta is living up to its name. We had a respite of cooler weather this spring, but the humidity has finally sprung its murky head, and our days won't dip bellow the 85 degree mark until late September. But that's okay, really. I love hot, hot heat and the slothful way we have to move around here in the south.
What I don't like? The damn summer outfits. Heat makes you a bit listless, so pulling out whatever old dress you have in the closet closest to your limp finger tips (other hand waving a large paper fan) seems the only option. So the downside to the fanning, and the sipping of mint juleps and the rocking on the front porch/balcony, it doesn't make for great outfit posts.
We promise we'll work on it, but for now we want to keep it simple. At least my Guatemalan bag keeps me from looking too much like I just stepped of an AA store and Cath's Cassius sunnies from Moxsie add a little bit of dreaminess to her simple, chic attire.
What do you guys and girls do when the best option seems to sweat it out in a boring old tank and shorts? Do you give in or fight the summer attire malaise?
