It hasn't been blogging weather recently--or weather for anything. It hit 103 in Central Park today and I think our apt. is about as hot. I've been inside the bedroom (the air conditioned room without internet) reading for my new book and going to yoga in the evenings.
Hopefully it will cool down tomorrow. My parents arrive next week and I'd like it to be perfect then (but obviously I can't control the weather). If heat now is the price for perfect later, I'll take it.
The heat has forced me to search my closet for suitable items. Silk is out, as is anything clingy or heavy. So far. the items in top rotation are my Vain and Vapid Leo dress (cotton, loose cut, light color and longer sleeves make it a perfect item to fight sunburn and the heat), a grey and ivory striped loose cut dress from the Gap's brief European line a couple of years back and my Lyell linen/cotton print romper from last year. Tomorrow perhaps I'll wear my Mayle Cecilia dress or possibly one of the cotton or linen dresses Phillip Lin designed for Uniqlo a few years back--which are far better than any recent designer-chain store collaborations.
