I can't speak for everyone. For many Austinites, all it takes is weekly visits to Barton Springs, brunch every Sunday, snow cones, and lots of cold drinks. I dabble in the same sort of activities to try and forget about the heat, but I think my greatest tactic is patience. Yes--it is hot, and I complain about it often, but fall will be here before we know it.
Last weekend I went on a very successful thrifting excursion. I scored a pair of gently used leather boots (perfect for fall), some sassy heels, and a couple of casual blouses that I plan to play around with over the next couple of weeks.
I picked up this little ivory number because of the cute lace detailing on the sleeves and bottom. I initially thought it was a bit short--I haven't fully hopped on the crop top bandwagon quite yet, but with a clean pair of high-waisted jeans I thought I could make it work.
But until I find the perfect pair of high-waisted jeans, denim shorts will just have to do. I put this outfit together to run a quick shopping errand. The blouse was perfect because it didn't show too much belly and the loose shape prevented any unsightly sweat-induced clinging.
I thought some Ruby Woo lips would be a fun touch for a summer afternoon.

Now off to find some high-waisted jeans. Any recommendations?
