Houston Gets Hot.






dress: Target, underskirt: thrifted, top: thrifted, shoes: wholesale-dress.net
What these pictures don't tell you is how hot it was outside while they were taken. I am on the last stretch of my first summer in Texas. I don't mean to gloat but I have handled it gracefully. Granted, I think it's been a slightly milder summer. There were a good two weeks in July that it rained all day, every day, and it stayed pretty cool. But let it be known, this humidity is no joke. I respect the people that have lived here for 20+ years. But I don't think I could ever get used to the sweat that gathers on that one spot on my back and is impossible to cool down. I hope that painted a really vivid picture for you. Happy Monday.

  2. You're gorgeous and modest, as always. And I grew up in places that have no humidity, so when I'm traveling, I'm such a wimp when it's humid. No resistance.

    Happy Monday :)

  3. You take the most adorable outfit shots :) Indianapolis has been so much more humid than normal these days. It sure takes a toll on naturally curly haired people with bangs -_-

  5. You pull off the heat well. Not even a bead a sweat! Skirts are seriously my saving grace come summer.

  7. ooo love the outfit here! i like all the pretty bright colors and how you casually tied your chambray shirt. and it looks like you could keep pretty cool in it too- i know that humidity is a monster. sometimes it gets so heavy here in chicago that it feels like you live in the congo and not the midwest

  12. I grew up in humidity and I love it (odd, I know) and I realized after years of living in a dry climate I actually prefer it. SO, we moved to Georgia. I have found that the best thing for sweat is to put arm and hammer in my shoes, pat it over my deodorant, and any spots that might get sweaty. It helps me a lot!

  13. You have a hot and humidity sister. I'm just a sweaty fuzzball. I like the waves in your hair. Braids?

  14. My little family moved from the Arizona desert to the humidity of Virginia recently. It has been quite the change in scenery for us, but we are loving it. We don't miss the desert heat one bit! Bring on the humidity ;) I love your outfit - so cute!

  17. I live in New Orleans and TOTALLY understand your heat in the summer issue. Once, while visiting Houston, I actually blacked out due to the heat! Stay cool, girl!
