Donning light basics on a hot, hot summer day...
Top: Pink Manila / Long Shorts: H&M / Shoes: F21
With the inconsiderate sweltering heat making it's way into our homes, our rooms, heck even into our 'pits, it can't be helped to gravitate towards clothes that are lightweight and can provide maximum ventilation - i.e. your sleeveless and cropped tops, those ultra short shorts, linen pants, and what have you. As always, I prefer reaching for the basics, especially when forced to face the menacing sun. The thing I like about basics is that they can be re-imagined in so many ways while keeping their, well, "basic" structure. A good example is this Cadence top from Pink Manila - a fun upgrade to the essential white tank, with slits and a long hem. Tuck the front part ala mullet-style or wear it as is, it still looks more interesting than your basic tank top.
How's everyone enjoying their summer?
P.S. Pardon the "simangot" face. That's just me dealing with the effing heat.
