urban frolicking

This morning I turned on the TV to listen to the weatherman prattle on about the intense heat New Yorkers are experiencing this month. Clad in a finely tailored suit, he throws out dizzying statistics and states the obvious that “it’s going to be another hot one” and to “stay cool” since there is no sign of it stopping any time soon; perfect time to be visiting the city. Yes, Mr. Weatherman, I will try my best to stay cool.

I am back in the NYC this weekend, and staying as cool as possible, running from air-conditioned venue to air-conditioned venue. Dresses are my no brainer when it comes to these intense heat waves, especially when they are as light and airy as this one. I love the eyelet texture and its breezy trapeze shape. In fact the majority of clothes I packed happen to be dresses of some sort.

I think I have become accustom to these intense temperatures, which is lucky, because I am able to appreciate the sticky beauty summertime in the city offers. Stylish guys and gals are everywhere donning their most summery of styles and outdoor markets are spilling over with sweet ripe fruits and fat vegetables. Beautiful architecture rests in a lovely haze while its citizens bustle around with sweating water bottles in hand. Sounds like the perfect season for refreshing bites and some sightseeing!

How do you beat the heat? :}

  15. Hi new follower here, great blog.
    Your dress is gorgeous, very good for a hot summer's day.
    In the UK we're not used to being too hot for long periods of time, so I tend to keep in the shade, wear a big sunhat and drink loads of iced drinks.
