How To Wear All White When it’s Super Hot

This heat wave is making me a really irritable young lady. I can’t take it and have set all meetings and appointments for phone calls, alleviating me of having to get dressed for this nasty weather these last two weeks. The thought of bearing 100F and horrid humidity on top of that is reason enough for me to stay in my work-at-home clothes, in my A/C with my laptop warming my thighs.

But that’s just not realistic all the time, so it’s wishful thinking. That just meant that when summer kicked off, I was determined to do lots of white looks. Here and here are two so far. And, I’ve been able to do that every so often and it’s been keeping my irritation level at a minimum. Something about a crisp white looks makes me happy! Plus, If I’m going to be hot, I might as well rock something colors and materials that will help keep the airflow going.

While you might think that hat traps heat in my head, it’s light enough to keep my head cool and offers some shade after the shades come off.

In keeping my with love affair with whites, I wore this a couple of months ago, right when summer spring was ending and summer made it’s bright entrance. After shooting a music video for a hip-hop group in 102F, I freshened up a bit, changed my top and threw on a splash of color.

By the end of the day, I was blazing, super hot, sweaty and ready to wash my face of all the fab make-up I had done twice.

Gotta love being in entertainment. I hope you enjoy the different looks I gave the shots… There were so many elements to the look that I wanted to play around with highlighting them individually.
