Honesty hour time! One glorious, hot as hell day in New York City, Lydia and I had a shoot. We figure it'd be the same old, same old but instead we were greeted with a thunderous monsoon. Granted it lasted a mere ten minutes but the damage was done. It became insanely hot AND humid. The sweat could not roll off my skin any faster which meant my white shirt was basically sheer after our very quick shoot.
You guys, even her camera lens could not stop sweating, just like my back which explains the lack of back-angle shots. It was definitely one of those unglamorous blogger moments which made me realize just how much I really love blogging.
Of course, that doesn't mean I didn't dress appropriately for the weather. I completely did but after waiting it out in the sauna, wait, I mean subway platform, I was burning up. It happens and there's no way to avoid it.
On the typical summer scorcher day, you can usually find in a loose, light-weight top and ripped denim that allows for a gentle breeze in all the right places. And of course some fresh kicks to seamlessly get me from point A to point B.
As of late I've been two-stepping all over town in these Rocket Dog kicks. They come in such gorgeous pastel colors and have a distressed element to them that are perfect for casual affairs. The padded ankles are a nice touch for those looking for extra comfort. If you're not much a sneakers girl, they do have some on-point sandals and booties.
Even after all the sweat, rain, and humidity that we both endured - I'm so excited about this set of photos. It's like the perfect formula that I hope to never repeat in the future.
Well it's time for me to finish packing since the girls and I are headed to Mad Decent's Block Party (in Philly!!) for some Diplo fun. I'm expecting debauchery that will only be documented on Snapchat, so make sure you're following me. Find me by searching "thestyleboro" and remember that snapchat is a no judgement zone.
