Who doesn’t love a good OTS (off-the-shoulder) top and a great pair of linen pants?? I have practically been living in breathable fabrics with this outrageous Texas heat. If you live in Texas you know exactly what I’m talking about. The type of weather where you walk outside and before you’ve been standing there for 2 seconds you’re already drenched in sweat? Or when it gets to 115 degrees with 90% humidity, so you’re essentially living in a sauna?? I can’t say I love these Texas summers! That means I need to seriously be practical with what I’m going to wear out of the house.
With the heat the way it is, it’s nearly impossible to look cute… with what you’re wearing, your make-up, especially the hair! Texas gals, you know what I’m talking about. It gets to the point where you never want to leave the AC of your house and if you do, you’re definitely not looking cute. Just think about having to shoot in this weather!! AWFUL!!!
That brings me to my next point. It is legitimately horrible to shoot in the Texas heat. I mean, you literally feel like you are going to die of heat exhaustion and dehydration after 1 shot. I was totally feeling that way shooting a few weeks ago; lots of cotton, jeans, hats, horrible. I threw on this AMAZING top and linen pants that I could actually comfortably endure the heat in! I’m not saying I stopped sweating or stopped admittedly requesting bottles of water, but I actually felt cute and comfortable, despite the circumstances. It’s all about finding the right clothes that can actually breathe.
If you’re like me, in a really hot and humid area, or even just hot for that matter; stick to something linen. It’s not going to stick to you like cotton does and can actually breathe to give you a little relief. Same with your choice of top. I’m not saying wear a full on linen outfit, but find something that is going to give you a little breathing room. But good news… these linen pants also come in FIVE colors and they’re even on sale!!
This top from WayF is such a winner too. The ruffles gave a little added touch to the super cute, OTS style, which is a huge trend this season. I’m definitely loving this trend because I don’t feel constricted while I’m wearing it. The elastic shoulders allow you to move and not feel caged in. I’m obsessed. Anything that makes me comfortable when I leave the house is a must have in my book!
