I live in central Texas. Where it's always insanely hot during the summer. But this summer has been special. And by special I mean: record breaking temperatures, out sweating my deodorant, and burning myself with the water hose when trying to water our rapidly dying garden. Silly me I though it would cool my feet off, instead I ended up with scalded feet. Good times. Oh and not to mention our AC has broken twice, in one month. Luckily all the parts were under warranty. But grumpy babies in hot houses do not fun summer days make.
I have developed a summer uniform. Be damned looking stylish. My goal is to be comfortable and as cool as possible. My uniform consists of my husband's old shirts DIY'd with the collar and arm bands cut out, yoga pants that have seen more couch time then yoga classes, and a high bun because growing your hair out in 107 degree weather kind of sucks frankly. My one concession to style is wearing ballet flats instead of flip flops. Tim Gunn told me too. He said to make it work.
Occasionally I will wear real pants, but I made my husband buy me three more pairs of yoga pants. So they may just become my fall uniform, winter uniform and spring uniform as well. I comfort myself by pointing out that my butt looks AH-mazing in yoga pants. And the husband agrees. And really that's all the matters.
What has been your summer uniform?
