Henry James once said that the words "summer afternoon" were "the two most beautiful words in the English language." I have heard about this a lot on how the sun makes people happy and how rainy days make people depressed. But, I get irritable and hostile when it is extremely hot! It has been very humid here and it is unbearable to stand outdoors. It's the humidity that makes me feel hungry, thirsty and lazy! Well, there is nothing that we can do about it. Due to the extreme temperatures amidst the hoopla, the rules of fashion were bent slightly in order to avoid heatstroke, meaning: as far as desert fashion is concerned, anything goes. There is no reason that we cannot beat the heat and still look great, right? I love wearing white nowadays. Admittedly, a fitted vintage cami and this James Perse shorts are hard to resist. They look casual, clean and also keep you cool. At least it won't allow you to stew in your own juices!

Oh, Cat Deely's embroidered romper is definitely hard to resist either!


Cute, flattering and unbelievably easy to wear, what's not to love? Pair with flat sandals and beat the heat in style!

Although, I'm loving the rain now too.. I love the rain when I am indoors, but I hate it when I have to run errands and it rains! I don't want my feet getting wet by the rain and stuff that comes with the rain outside, it makes me feel icky! :-P

Maybe Henry James was talking from the British's point of view? They feel cold most of the time in their country so they want summer to come :-D

It rained a few times the past few days in JB so it's not so hot now. :)
