High Season .... Low Budget
It's been unusually hot here for the last couple of weeks. Not that I'm complaining (I love the heat and sun) but I noticed that I don't have too many summery clothes in my closet as we hardly get these high temperatures in this part of Europe. The few that I own are at my mom's house which is a two hour train ride away and I don't think I'll get to visit her before the end of the month.
So I went looking for some lighter clothes I could add to my wardrobe without having to rob a bank first. I must admit that I rather invest in clothes I can wear all year round and summers are either non-existent or very short over here. I was lucky that I found something that I actually really like.
I had been looking for a flapper dress for ages and now found this at H&M reduced to 10 Euros. It comes in white and black as well. The thong sandals I found at a super cheap shoe store that I would never enter because everything is tacky and pleather. These sandals, though they are not real leather either, look more expensive than they actually are and only cost 9.95 Euros. I guess they won't last too long but at least I have something I can wear in these high temperatures.
I also bought a rose patterned maxi dress at Urban Outfitters and a sheer breezy high waist skirt from American Apparel. Pics to come.
Is it as hot in your city as well? What do you do against the heat? I like going to the local botanical garden as it's not far from my neighborhood and there are benches, trees, a rose garden and ponds with ducks. Took some pics so you get the idea.
