I think I’ve had enough of summer…
Or, rather, the hot weather. I mean, it’s been weeks… And I’ve spent some time in no less than 3 countries these past couple of weeks (first in Finland, then a week in the U.K., a few days in Germany, and then back to Finland…), and there was no difference whatsoever in temperature.
Well, at least in Germany it cooled down in the evenings, and the air con in the hotel was fantastic. Which was great as we could at least escape the hot weather every once in a while.
But, let’s talk about the outfit.
These photos were taken in Dortmund, Germany. And as I said, it was really hot, which of course makes doing all the ‘touristy stuff’ a bit challenging. But at least I think I’ve now cracked the code for proper heatwave-proof wardrobe.
The trick is to wear something loose and light: a shapeless sack dress with nothing around the waist, no jewellery and the simplest shoes I can find.
Yes, I know that a shapeless dress makes me look at least 2 sizes bigger. And you know what, I don’t give a damn. It’s way too hot, and I simply can’t stand anything touching my skin. And I definitely don’t want anything around my waist making me sweat even more.
And after weeks and weeks of hot weather, I can say without a doubt that this is the most comfortable outfit I’ve worn all summer (note to self: next time there’s a Marimekko outlet sale, forget the bags and towels and just stock up on loose dresses, they will become a summer stable from now on, thanks to climate change…). I wouldn’t go as far as saying the dress makes a heatwave ‘fun’ but it certainly makes it a bit more bearable.
