Breathe

We just got through another heatwave – it was our second or third of the summer, and each time it just got worse. You know when you open an oven and get blasted in the face with heat? Yeah, it’s been like that over here. Going outside is like stepping into an oven.

Thankfully there was some cool air last night to lift the heat (we’re expecting rain any minute now). So to celebrate, I put on a marginally cute outfit instead of the pajamas I’ve been wearing these past few days. Originally I wore this with my brown sandals, but they looked off somehow, so I swapped them for these sneakers and they work much better – they kind of match the top, so they keep the outfit balance and keep the color scheme cohesive (hey, even with a casual outfit, you have to put some thoughts into it!)

    Eeeek, that reminds me of the wet season in Bali when I lived there. It was SO unbearably humid, hot and sweaty for about 5 months!!! The outfit is really pretty though. I love that blouse and I think it could work for SIA this time!

    I know that feeling all too well. You get blasted with that hot air as soon as you open the oven door and you’re like, “whoa!” as you step back. Or you know how when it’s really hot in your kitchen and you open your freezer door? You see all the fog (or “cold smoke” as some call it) that’s created as the cold air meets the hot? You have to wave it all away just so you can see inside! And yes, I don’t mind standing there for a few seconds to enjoy that fresh, frigid air on a hot day. šŸ˜‰

    While we haven’t had any major heat waves here yet (they’re coming soon, like this weekend kind of soon), it has been quite heated over here over the past few weeks and little rain has been in our forecast (though it did rain last night so that helped cool our air a little).

    Stay cool Salazar!

    And I agree with Kezzie. Your blouse would be perfect for this week’s SIA! Hope to be there this time!
