Seattle has been breaking heat records for four days straight. Hottest days ever recorded in May. It is hot. 30C to 33C plus, and humid. And very few people have a/c here - because we never needed it!
We do not have a/c and our loft is HOT.
Hence my VERY breezy, lightweight, and ventilating outfit in 100% cotton. A NAVY and cream patterned pants set (Zara says black - incorrect - it is absolutely navy).
These fluid solid and patterned pants sets were one of my favourite looks in the '90s. Thrilled I can cross them off my shopping list! They are beachy - and perfect for HOT weather when you don't want to wear a dress, skirt, or shorts. I lived in beachy hot Cape Town in the '90s, so it worked very well. It's working as well in our heatwave!
I LOVE this set (and my solid citron set here)! The '60s pattern is appealing, and so is the nod to the '70s. Despite the heat, I've been prancing around in it feeling playful, nostalgic, cheeky, and very comfy!
The sandals have closed backs, so the long hems on the pants work just fine. The hems do not get caught under my heels as I stride.
Waving to ChristinaF who has the same set. Waving to Suz who wants to try the set. Waving to Laura who loves '90s sets like I do. Waving to Katerina who mentioned it's a great alternative to dresses :)
I was at the vet with Sam and Jo this morning. Now I'm off to walk them and run errands downtown on foot. Busy on this sizzling Seattle day. I'm wearing the right thing!
Thanks for looking. xo
ETA: Just saw the weird reflections of sunlight in the mirror. The print is perfect though - I assure you.
