Poinsettia Park. West Hollywood, CA
A prolonged period of excessively hot weather (relative to the usual temperature in the area) is what is known as a heat wave, and in good old Southern California, that is exactly what we’ve been having. I realize that even if you don’t live in this area, and you keep up with my blog, you’re probably as painfully aware of the heat as I’ve been because it seems to be all I can ever talk about in my entries lately. I just can’t help it! I blame the heat- it’s stifling my creative brainpower!
Wait… where was I? Oh yea, it’s hot! And my across-the-hall neighbor/pseudo roommate has been singing “The Heat is On” for the past two weeks and as hilarious as it is, (she brings a smile to my face in even the crummiest of situations) it’s actually become quite the fitting theme song for our apartment complex these days. So in order to escape the sauna that has become our home, we have been spending lots of time outdoors. Late night chats on the fire escape, cold glasses of champagne, catching up on reading under big shady trees at the park, and sneaking into our neighbors pool have become our go-to activities this past week and I have to say- it’s been pretty great. So even though it may sound like I’m complaining about the weather, I’m actually not. It’s more like bragging.
I’ve been living in clothing that is light and airy, which is why this breezy number from Social Butterflies has been a dream to wear all weekend. The skirt, a piece from the boutique’s newest collection, is perfect for warm summer days like today but also, when paired with a different top and shoes, will transition seamlessly into the fall. Don’t you love it when that happens?
Until it cools down a bit, you can find us doing summery activities, singing, “The Heat is On… The Heat is Ooon…”
