kellyshoestrings 's Thoughts:

I guess you could say my way of staying “cool” in the ridiculously hot Fresno summers is new to me, because I just moved back after being in Southern and Northern California for 4 years. Yes, when it’s 100 degrees you can wear short shorts and sandals and tank tops… but doesn’t everyone else? I’d say I usually only brave the warm summer nights, which are my favorite, so the way I stay cool is going out at night, and still being able to wear pants but pairing them with a breezy tank top or cropped top made of a light and airy fabric like the one in this photo. I like to maintain a sense of spring or fall in my summer wardrobe. These new sandals I bought on etsy are perfect for summer nights – even though they are closed toe the woven fabric let’s them breath and they are a great addition to an outfit with the wedge heel. I also wear earrings more in the summer – why is that? I can’t quite figure it out but they just seem right in the summer… and of course, can’t forget, sunglasses! That sun is intense in the summer so I keep it fresh with my vintage sunnies. I guess when it’s really hot, I’ll pull out the skirts or sundresses – those are always a summer staple, right? A lightweight dress – can never go wrong. But when it’s possible, I like to switch it up and keep the pants on. ;)
