Lookbook: Hot Hot Hot!

After about the 2nd day in Mexico I decided that no matter what I wore, whether it was a tank top, a t-shirt, a dress, or even if it was black or white, it did not matter because I would be HOT anyway. So what does a girl do? She puts on a cute outfit because it’s better to be hot and look cute than hot and look gross 🙂

What I’m Wearing:
Shirt: J. Crew
Shorts: J. Crew
Shoes: Victoria’s Secret
Hat: J. Crew
(I really really like J. Crew)
I am wearing the same shorts as in yesterday’s lookbook!
I wanted to show the different looks you could do with the same shorts.

Normally I wouldn’t do pink and pink together but in Mexico, it was perfect. I don’t know how people deal with that humidty down there but I just couldn’t. I was out taking pictures that day and the shorts were great for when I was crouching on the ground getting shots and that hat was a savior the entire time! I loved it and barely took it off during the day. It helped when I was taking pictures as I didn’t have to squint my other eye and was able to see the shot a lot easier.

The shoes are what we wore with our bridesmaid dresses. I hadn’t wore them yet and wanted to break them in that day before I had to walk down the long pier to get to the ceremony. (See how long it is?) I was kind of worried I might trip or twist my ankle in them. They were pretty cute except for they were kind of heavy and made really loud “clomp” noises when I had to walk down steps. So much so that when J was sitting in the room, he knew I was coming even before I had reached the door.

As I waited for my sister to start getting ready I wandered out to the awesome deck of her penthouse suite and took some self portraits.


This is the only one I liked but too bad my feet got cut off. The other ones I was making really weird faces. The face I’m making here is “omg, is the timer going to go off yet because I am really hot!” I basically took 3 shots and then ran back into the air conditioned room. Ah, I can’t stand the heat!

    You definitely wouldn't like it where I live, then. Hot & humid and triple digit temperatures, with nary a beach in sight! I don't mind the heat, unless I've got something I want to do outside that involves a lot of movement. (Get sweaty fairly quickly, and then you just feel gross.)

    Yay for being stylish in ridiculously hot weather. It's so true – the weather will be hot no matter what we wear, so why not deal with the heat in style?

    Eek! You're wearing a HAT! Thank you, thank you. As someone else who dons a hat outside (I must!) it's nice to see a look paired with one, because I always feel like a slight spaz with my sunhat. As in…it kind of goes with my outfit, but not really, but kind of, but I'm thinking about it way too much, AND THEN I psyche myself out and end up chucking it (much to my regret later when I break out into a rash, argh).

    This outfit is beyond darling. You're my hero. ♥
