Turn Down the Heat

My Threads: Top: Francesca's Collections, Shorts: Gap, Pumps & Belt: Target, Jewelry: No idea...Watch: Fossil

Okay, so I do not do well in extreme heat. Or cold. I grew up in a beach town where the climate range was about 60-75 degrees year round. Maybe a little warmer or cooler during the more 'extreme' weather weeks. 

But now we're having a heat wave here in Southern California. 108 degrees a few days last week. Ugh. 

Anyway, taking pictures outside last weekend was an interesting experience. I usually do outfit pictures in the evening when it has cooled off a bit, so I hadn't yet experienced the discomfort of 'hot' outfit shoots. At least not too badly. 

We took these pictures in the afternoon after I had been running around all morning. My hair was sticking to my face, my shirt was sticking to my back...not pleasant. 

Needless to say, I got out of this shirt and into a tank pretty quickly after taking these. But I paid the price for my speed change. My shirt was so stuck to me, I ripped it when I was taking it off. It's along a bust seem, so I'm hoping my awesome mom (who can sew) will try and fix it for me. 

Lesson learned. Don't wear shirts with skinny sleeves for outfit posts in the heat. Better yet, don't wear anything at all. 

I kid, don't do that. Clothes are good.

Please tell me I'm not alone in uncomfortable summer outfit shoots. Or clothing mishaps. Have you had any strange moments thanks to this heat? 


  1. Rarely do I venture outside for outfit posts. I hate when the weather drastically changes in one day. I wore a light sweater to lunch once, perfectly comfy when I got there, nearly died a few hours later because I was wearing a sweater in 85+ degree weather.


  2. Stay cool cousin! btw did you see I nominated you for an award, check out my newest blog! I would love to see your answers or possibly a comment response!?
