Fashion Over Reason: Muggy Ain't Got Nothing On Me

Muggy Ain't Got Nothing On Me

Don't know if it's crazy hot where you are, but here on the East Coast it has just been scorching and muggy for the past 2 weeks, which can be problematic when putting together an outfit -- looking fresh, crisp and breezy can prove to be quite the challenge. And then it goes even further: what do you do with your hair? Your makeup? You LIFE?!?! Ok that last part isn't real, but it felt right to say then and there. I am here to solve all your style predicaments: when it's so hot you can barely stand to have anything on your skin, grab a silk tank, a pair of itty bitty loose cotton shorts and pull your hair up in a tight bun. All you need on your face is a few swipes of bronzer. If you want to fake fanciness, rim your lids with kohl and add a few pieces of jewelry that won't cause sweat outbreaks (aka, no bib necklaces). Voilà!

I'll definitely break my no-shoe policy, one day. When the time is ripe haha.
Great look btw, very 'summerly' , don't even know if thats a word.
I always go for a chino, it's very breathable, not too hot and not too cold.
