Last week was a bizarre week, temperature wise. The temperature reached 34 degrees Celsius at some point that week. As someone who gravitates toward skinny jeans and sweater, I am at lost when it comes to dressing for this kind of weather. My mom has been very strict when it comes to showing too much skin. But honestly right now, I won’t be able to cope with this weather if I have to cover up so much. My office just moved location and they haven’t had the chance to install the air conditioning yet and I also don’t have air conditioner at home so I have to dress airy the whole day.
My first rule of thumb is to stick with white because coloured tops trap heat and I don’t want to have that. Shorts is the way to go. I can also wear dress but I don’t have easy summer dresses and since I need to bike everywhere, I feel like dress can get in my way. So a pair of shorts is what I chose for my uniform. Mine is an old pair from H&M that I probably bought in 2012. They are the only pair of denim shorts that I have but they serve me just fine.
And since I injured my right ankle, it has become twice the size of my left ankle. Due to that accident, I haven’t been able to wear any kind of shoes. Thankfully I have a pair of Birkenstocks that I can just easily slide in and out of. The sandals also are adjustable when it comes to width so I can make it a little bit bigger for my swollen foot. Ouch!
So the combination of white top, denim shorts, and sandals is my kind of hot weather uniform. I also never leave the house without a pair of sunglasses as well as skin coated of sunscreen. Stay protected!
