Stay Cool

Pineapple Cherry Popsicles| Domestic Batch

Who has the tolerance to put things in an oven in this heat???? Well gladly you don’t have to. Go invest in a popsicle mold.  Like this one.  And you can have frozen treats all summer long.  I had some cherries and pineapple sitting around so I threw them together to make a refreshing summer popsicle. Frozen fruit is the best!!! It’s such a great option to cool off when you want something sweet but even the thought of working with dough or batter makes you want to cry.  And by cry I mean sweat.  And by sweat I mean drip profusely from the time you wake up until you go to bed.  Oh wait you have central air? We’re not friends anymore.

Between popsicles and the easiest outfit to put together ever, this summer can be unbearable, or you can take it by the balls and own it.  I chose to own it.  I know ways to stay cool in this heat. I grew up for a good part of my life in Florida, this heat is in my blood.  And I’ll always take it over being chilled to the bone while the wind blows so hard I can’t feel my face.

I have to be honest, when it’s this hot, I wear as little clothes as possible as long as it’s still socially acceptable.  I rock a lot of rompers, a lot of flowy dresses, and a lot of cut-offs.  My favorite cut-offs are simply a pair of jeans I cut up ages ago.  They’re stretchy, and funky, and distressed, and can go with basically any shirt you pair with them.  

I recently made a Zara sale my bitch and rocked it with an epic bag of findings. This blouse is one of the fruits of that labor and I love it.  When I go on the hunt for new items for my wardrobe, I enjoy finding basics that aren’t basic. Any white blouse? Boring.  However, the detail down the middle and the sleeves makes this one anything but ordinary.  It can be simply thrown on with shorts, or tucked in with a great skirt.  I was really happy when I snagged this in the store.

I’ve been wearing the Dolce Vita sandals I received from Stitch Fix for my Mexico trip all summer.  Recently, I even got compliments on how cute they are from an associate in Williams Sonoma while I was purchasing a new tart pan. (It’s square, I wanted to get crazy). I love being able to wear these sandals with anything. The utmost casual outfit like this, or with a more polished dress, it still works.
