Weekly Capsule 20.2: UncoveredPosted: May 20, 2015
We got some rain over the weekend, so it’s been blessedly cool this week, meaning it’s in the lower 90’s instead of nearing 100. It also means that I can bring out my sleeveless tops – I know, sounds like an oxymoron, but it’s actually better to cover up when it’s sunny out. In Vietnam during the summer, pretty much the only people you see wearing shorts and sleeveless tops are tourists. The locals (especially the women) are all in these long-sleeved robes designed to block out the sun and the dust. I don’t wear it because my commute is only 15 minutes on the bike, but sometimes even I feel like I need one.
P/S: The outfit was a direct copy of this (the tumblr is lovely, I only wish the blogger would take more outfit photos, because her style is adorable). I should’ve won a necklace too; this pin is cute, but it’s tiny – I’m pretty sure it’s a tie pin – so you can barely see it.
