Let's all acknowledge that it's ridiculously terribly hot as of late, shall we? And if you're in Utah like me, it's been humid as well, which means we've all been in misery. 80 degrees in my house with the swamp cooler on full blast and the fan going? That's just cruel (cruel summer).

So now that we've gotten that out of the way, it's safe to assume that you won't judge me when I tell you that besides when I'm at work or out running errands, I haven't been wearing makeup or doing my hair, or lets be honest, wearing a bra. My face always looks a bit sunburned (even though I stay out of the sun), makeup melts right off, curls fall, hair frizzes and is somehow greasy at the same time, and sweat stains are never attractive. Obviously I don't tolerate the heat very well at all, so you'll understand why I put little to no effort into my "look" 6 out of 7 days a week during the summer.

Since looking nice isn't really happening these days, I'm obviously going to photograph the crap out of things on the rare occasion I exert some effort, so bear with me, eh?

The Voodoo Vixen top from Deadly Dames is so so incredibly lovely. Although it does sometimes feel as though you're being choked... and I can't exactly wear it to the office.. and I had to stitch it up to fit my wee chest size... and it made it painfully obvious that my boobs are different sizes... all totally worth it.

And now I'm just going to hang out over here and "patiently" wait for fall & winter to arrive so I can make full use of my massive sweater & tights collection, because this 90+ degree weather is rubbish.

I'm with you on this one. I don't tolerate the heat very well at all. AT ALL. It's been 30C/86F here the last two weeks. I can't even wear pin up clothing. It's too figure hugging. It feels so disgusting taking off a bustier after wearing it all day in 80F heat. I don't care, I'll dress nicely when the heat wave is over.

I feel you!  ny is always extremely hot and humid in the summer, and my hair is always a mess and can't hold a curl.  I can say, however, that I finally found a hairspray that actually helps my hair retain its style.  It's Chi "Helmet Head" and I can't recommend it enough! I was creeping on Doris Mayday's instagram and someone asked what hairspray she was using and she cited that one.
