Trapped in August's Mouth



H&M White Short Overalls (similar, similar), Buffalo Exchange Sunday Funday Shirt (similar, similar), Converse White All Star Chuck Taylor Sneakers, H&M Navy Polka-Dot Flat Brim Cap (similar)

August, you're a cruel, humid, and moist month. No one described the feeling of New York City this August better than a friend who said that standing outside was like being in someone's mouth. Such a painful truth to accept. And then when there's a breeze, it's just like they're breathing heavily on you. So, I've been resorting to wearing a lot of white and baring my legs to give the weather as big of a middle finger as I can.

But then this means that I also should start shaving my legs more often, which is something I awkwardly realized today in the middle of a meeting at work. As I looked down. And saw plenty of hair. And then felt my legs. To feel lots of fuzz. Lots of fuzz. Lots of it. 

Again, hygienic upkeep not on fleek with social norms.

  5. humidity is nothing but a big fat curse. no joke. I miss dry weather...

    and also I've always had such light hair (and so little) that I've only shaved once, I think... aaaaand sometimes I'm like, aw, am I gross for not shaving my legs?? so every now and then someone says something and I'm like yep that's weird. maybe I start shaving my legs regularly??? ... and then I'm like is this even a legit worry to have?? xD

    1. Shaving is 100% overrated. You ain't gross, girl.

  7. Haha, I shave about once every few weeks, if I remember to. I only really notice it when my boyfriend runs his hands over the stubble and teases me. I do remember the disgusting mugginess of East Coast summers, though. It indeed feels like being in someone's mouth. Blech.

  9. Oh my gosh, your weather descriptors make me so uncomfortable hahah. So glad to be on the West coast instead. Also 'moist' is the worst word in the English language. Also your overalls are super cute.

  11. Standing in someone's mouth or their armpit, that's for sure. Moving from Alabama to Iowa was a much needed relief... it's been hot, but not nearly as bad as Alabama or a coast city. Ooooohf. Your overalls are ADORBZ, Jen. Just adorbz.
