With Summer in full swing I have to stop and apologize for my radio silence over the first half of Summer…if you’re wondering I’ve been having a pretty low key Summer. After my birthday it seems my energy went straight to shit and my tolerance for this heat just wasn’t there (who else has been dying during this heat wave)? Between mercury retrograde and the sweltering temperatures I haven’t had much of a desire to leave my house lol gone are the days of waiting til Summertime for all the festivities to begin.
I remember being in my early 20’s and me and my friends would count down the days, hrs, minutes & seconds until Summer finally arrived; just so we could go on our annual road trips, bar hop, party and drink all night long. If anyone ever asked me, What’s your favorite season? I’d proudly say Summer! Now I explain how Summer is cool but Fall is bae lol. With all due respect to Hot Girl Summer I’ve been having a pretty cold girl summer myself but I’ve been cheering all you hotties on from the sidelines lol. Can we just take a moment and appreciate how dope Meghan the Stallion is, she’s really started a trend with this whole Hot Girl Summer thing and I ain’t mad at it. Not to mention her flow is crazy! Shout out to all the seasoned hot girls from the the Cash Money Era lol. I think we all can agree that she’s having the best summer ever. I wanted so bad for it to be a Hot Girl Summer but it’s been more of a working girl summer for me and honestly I’m not complaining. One thing I do enjoy about Summer is a good two piece set!
Are we feeling the hair clip trend? I am…for right now that is lol but it definitely seems like I’ll be over it momentarily.
I like to refer to two piece sets as “lazy girl fashion” simply because they’re easy and practical, all the work is basically done for you. You don’t have to worry about finding the right top and or bottoms to match when the pieces are either identical or made to go together. No fuss style and look fly, I’d say it’s a no brainer! This particular set is from H&M and you will never believe how much I paid for it (Drum Roll Please)….$10! I already had the pants in my on line cart but I didn’t see the top until I actually went into the store. I was scrummaging through the sale rack (as usual) and found the pants on sale for $6 and the top for $4, I was to hyped lol. I was skeptical at first about wearing the pieces together because I wasn’t sure if the matchy, matchy, look was for me but I’m so glad I didn’t second guess myself. After not finding a single top I liked to go with the pants I said fuck it and grabbed the top, at $4 I couldn’t resist. To give it a little more upmh I chose to tie the top in the front and left all the buttons undone, I wasn’t a fan of wearing it as is.
When it comes down to style Summertime is just not my favorite, I mean don’t get me wrong, I will show up and I will show out BUT summer style is just so blah to me. On the days where the temperatures are being disrespectful the only thing I’m concerned about is being cool and in as little as possible 😩. For this shoot I literally didn’t start shooting until after 7:00 pm, the sun will not have me out here sweating half to death being an actual Hot Girl lol.
My attempt at a Hot Girl move nearly broke my damn neck lol I thought it would be cool to put my foot up on the tree trunk and nearly slipped right into the grass smh. The grass was damp, my 6 inch heel was about 4 inches deep into the soil and my foot kept slipping right off of the tree 😭. My knees kept buckling and I’m tryna hold my balance…the whole thing was a damn mess lmao but anything for the shot right? How’s your summer been going so far? Have you been living up to the Hot Girl title or more on the colder end of things? I wonder if I could be a part time, lukewarm, Hot Girl? You know the bomb ass auntie who comes out occasionally but never stays to long and in bed by 10? Lol…I do have a few looks I wanna wear before summer officially ends so be on the look out for more posts in the upcoming weeks. I know I been slipping, again, but Summer understands. It’s not you, it’s me…Lol. It’s officially August and summer is moving right along, Let’s end the Summer on a good note. Thanks for stopping by and remember, whatever you do, always do it with style.
