Heat Wave New York ! Who is feeling it? Am I the only one wilting in this heat?
I bet the answer is a resounding NO! Heat wave New York…
Heat wave California, Heat wave New Jersey, Heat wave Europe. I could go on and on. Record breaking temps spell trouble for so many. As I wander my neighborhood I see homeless people and can not imagine how they cope. I see elderly people too, and wonder about their welfare. Truly heart wrenching.
So I wear a sleeveless sundress , a wispy thing in indigo blue .
I add a sleeveless suede vest for when I am indoors. Booties give my look a more timely autumnal vibe.
Good morning Heat wave New York!
Indoors you will find me appreciating the air conditioning! I sip ginger tea to help fight the summer cold . None the less, I smile and enjoy! Earl grey tea and fresh ginger is pretty delicious !
A luxe setting, yes! But I am wearing an old dress that I paid $15.00 from a mom and pop shop. I added a suede vest, also, bought from a local mom and pop shop near me. Colorful and cool boots, ( prepare to see them often) are Dries Van Noten, my favorite designer, via Le Prix.com. I love this particular resource, as it combines a large group of small consignment shops in one venue. Therefore, shopping for fall booties in my very small size was a breeze. I purchased these for a song!
Standing up as I arrive, my suede vest is off! Too hot for this layer!
My earrings were thrifted from LVIS, and the proceeds go to charitable causes. I gravitate towards anything with an art deco vibe. Mixed metals add character to this pair of unique ear clips.
Mirrored white sunnies add a touch of modern whimsy, and my faux ostrich bag, purchased in Porto, adds texture and warmth.
Voilá, easy peasy dressing for a stifling hot day!
#NYFW starts today and while I don’t feel awful , I do not feel especially well. My autoimmune disease flare has calmed only to be replaced by a cold. An upper respiratory infection is no biggee for most, but for me, with my autoimmune disease and compromised immune status- it could spell trouble.
As well, I do not want to get others ill. The first day of a cold is when you are most contagious. So I am briefly visiting a friend and looking longingly at my Fashion Week schedule. Oh well, things could be so much worse!
I sit and ponder. Life is complicated and lately there is so much negative energy . I pay homage to the very real chaos without letting it get me down for too long. I hope I can bring some light into this void.
Increasingly, I feel less patient with things like manicures, and hair styling. Time is better spent elsewhere. I twist my hair into a knot when it is almost dry and sleep on it, and wait for waves to greet me in the morning mirror.
I love headbands and pony tails . My braided headed band is one you have seen often and most recently here . Headbands add a nice bit of polish and only take a few seconds to add. Arched against a favorite porcelain vase, this pearl one is a favorite too.
Certainly it is challenging styling with heat wave New York coming on, full steam. Yes, pun intended. It is due to break soon, and I do hope so.
A bit of cooler air will lift everyone’s mood.
Seasonally appropriate weather helps one think the word is as it should be. Whether it is or not is open to debate. Lets dwell on goodness, health and the beauty that is everywhere, if only we have eyes to see them.
ENJOY THE WEEKEND DEAR READERS!
