C’mon don’t amuse me, I don’t need your sympathy


Vintage shirt from my mom’s closet; scalloped peach shorts from eBay; platform shoes from lovely-shoes.net

Ugh, there’s something I really hate about summer vacations: the heat. I live in a city where a “normal” summer temperature is 45°C, in our worst days we could reach 50°C and I think the record was 55°C on the shadow. Could you imagine that? I laugh my ass off when I see movies where the plot is in a jungle and they say something like “in a burning heat of 30°…” wait, what? seriously?!
So I made this outfit, pretty simple but I think it’s catchy. The shirt is actually a light blazer that my mom had had in her closet for many years, I had to modify it and remove the shoulder pads, which I think made it look antique.

  1. Jajajaja.., Yo cuando una vez lei en tu fb que hacían 50º y casi me da algo. Yo supongo que el cuerpo de uno termina acostumbrándose a ciertas temperaturas; cuando Yo llegué aqui a Toledo no estaba acostumbrada al calor seco y a los 40º (y sigo sin acostumbrarme) en verano o al frio seco y bajo cero en invierno, por eso me hacía gracia cuando he ido a Argentina a visitar a mi familia en Buenos Aires todo el mundo con bufandas, guantes y capas y capas de ropa y Yo apenas con un cardigan, y lo mismo pasa con el calor, solo que bueno.., Yo el calor lo sufro mucho con dolores de cabeza constantes, mareos, manchas en la piel.
    Pero que quieres que te diga.., siempre pienso en lo bien que llevas el calor, Yo a esa temperatura estaría en la ducha fria todo el dia..

    Me encantan esos shorts, no son mi color favorito pero la forma y el corte son preciosos!!!
