Sweat Surrender

hotlace2

It's hard to find the strength to dress up, or dress at all for that matter, when your apartment is like an oven and the world outside is a sweaty, grimy, sticky concrete jungle. When preparing for the day, certain unpleasantries must be taken into account: How hard is it going to be to wash the sweat out of this? Should I go sleeveless, thereby avoiding pit stains, or is it worth the risk of eventual deodorant failure and subsequent personal stink factory?

I have primarily given up on trying to look "nice" or "put together" for the time being in any sense of the words, but yesterday I pulled out this pretty little old blouse that I found in a friend's giveaway bag last year. It's already a bit stained and going to shreds, so I figured a little more wear and tear wouldn't really make that much difference.

And now, of course, it's absolutely pouring rain outside and I'm stuck at a pet-sit with no umbrella. Hmmm...so maybe this is the excuse to wear rain boots with a bikini that I've been looking for??

I know exactly what you mean! I pretty much give up in the summer heat too!

i think you did manage to look put together and nice....even if you felt like a soggy mess!
i vote yes on the wellies and bathing suit! we don't get rain in the summer here, so i use the garden as my excuse, but you might even get some puddle splashing in, you lucky girl.

A bikini with rain boots??? Never thought of it, but it puts a pretty sweet (not sweat) picture in my head...
