Happy Sunday ladies. Our temps topped 108 yesterday which is just rotten. I don’t think I will ever get used to weather that hot. I long to be near the coast but with things as they are, I am here for the foreseeable future. In terms of attire, anything heavy or tight is out of the question in this heat… so I am resorting to loose and very simple.
Today I am sharing a beautiful new pair of Madewell pull-on linen pants – they could not be easier to wear! They have on-seam side pockets and a drawstring at the waist which is more for show than anything. They’re available in regular and tall…the petite is sold out. Because I’m short, these regular crops are ankle length on me. I may turn the hem up to make them cropped. The fabric is lightweight and breezy and keeps me covered up in the sunshine.
*These pants are marked way, way down online. Madewell is giving an extra 30% off all sale merchandise with the code GIANT at checkout… until July 13.
I wore them with my favorite white v-neck tee, some very simple jewelry, and comfy white sandals. I’m really glad I ordered two of these tee’s because I wear them a lot! A great white t-shirt is an invaluable staple in my summer wardrobe. The sandals are from last year but this year’s version is even cuter…I love the woven leather.
If drawstring ties aren’t your thing, you could easily just pull them out or snip them off. These earrings and necklace are very lightweight to the point of not feeling them which is just what I want in blistering heat. Madewell’s gold jewelry is the color of old gold so seems a bit softer to me than other costume “gold”. I just love this combination of white, light brown, and gold jewelry for summer.
I don’t have long hair, but any hair on the back of my neck is too much in these temps. Rather than my standard banana clip, I tried these spiral hairpin spin pins. I have very little hair to work with but these easily screw in like a corkscrew and work perfectly. The back of my do isn’t going to win any beauty awards but because the pins are flat, I can also pull a sun hat over them.
I had a lovely day with my daughter today, albeit most of the day was spent indoors and enjoying the air conditioning.
How do you stay cool in the heat?
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident (and cool!)
