heat wave

082b

Holy guacamole, any East coasters out there? This is absurdity, it is so hot out there. I was melting after literally 5 minutes. Apparently MD is the hottest state in the US right now. I believe it.

So I threw on something light because honestly you want to be wearing as little clothing as possible right now. I love this dress and have worn it at least once on the blog before. I bought it from an outdoor market type thing in Terragona, a little island off the East coast of Barcelona. We went on a weekend trip and it was lovely. I miss Spain so much, I'm itching to go back. Anyway before I get on a nostalgic tangent- the dress is a nice lightweight cotton, perfect for summer!

With the heat, you pretty much have to wear your hair up and I just came across this post about wearing scarves and had to try it out! I really like how it looks and it's super easy.
