heatwave

Seems that summer is here to stay but that won't stop me from wearing dark colors. The heat may, however, continue to cause me grief with my hair -- in particular, with my fringe sticking to my forehead. It's my first summer with bangs in a long time and I'd forgotten all about this unfortunate phenomena.  Luckily, they held up ok for these shots but I'm sure there will be a few sweaty disheveled photo-shoots in my near future!
It's not all bad though, I've been clocking so serious hammock-time and perhaps remedied my Vitamin D deficiency at the same time.

Oh my goodness that romper is to die for!! I love that it looks a bit more structured than most rompers, which always look frumpy to me. And I wear dark colors in the summer too. Can't help it- black is my favorite color!

I've been loving rompers lately, and yours is pretty amazing! I can't believe it's from Topshop; I thought for sure you were going to say it was vintage/thrifted. And I've always wanted bangs, but as a dancer living in a particularly humid part of Pennsylvania, the sweaty factor has always stopped me.

I'm in love with your romper...it's so cute. :)  I know what you mean about wearing dark colors even in summer...it seems like I can never stop wearing black or gray, no matter the season or occasion, haha.
And bangs...yours are so darling {your hair is absolutely perfect, by the way} but I can't decide if I should get them or not. But I def remember being 5 and having my bangs stick to my forehead all summer long! :)

Hmm...I'd like to know what your tips for other bloggers are, and how you'd describe your style and how to achieve "your look".

I can never let go of black...no matter what season.

Lovely romper. What I'd do for a topshop in this area!

Adorable last picture as well :)

thanks! I actually bought it via Topshop.com! There is not a Topshop in LA (yet) - and my wallet is thankful for this fact.

meg, reckless daughter said...

thanks! I'll definitely keep these questions in mind!

I know - everyone always thinks it's vintage! I sort of wish it was.

PS: I'd give up my bangs to be able to dance professionally! so fun.

Your hair is always so lovely! ( even though it makes me want chop mine off :)

I have the same problem with my fringe! Dry hair shampoo saves the day
