On Monday something happened to me that hasn’t occurred in probably 10+ years. I was so overheated, I sweat through my shirt. It was disgusting. You guys weren’t kidding about New York humidity. I haven’t felt temps or humidity like this since living in Texas! And it’s a memory I’d just as soon forget again.
Yesterday, though the temps were a little lower, the humidity was even higher (or maybe the appropriate adjective is heavier), and all I wanted to do was wear as little as possible for my lunch date with Hitha. But it’s New York, and she had suggested Bryant Park Grill, where one cannot show up in a bikini, tunic and flip flops during the lunch hour, so I opted for this super lightweight dress and easy accessories…
It’s funny, I bought this dress a few years ago to attend a wedding in (where else?) Texas, and I don’t think I’ve worn it since. There just hadn’t been an occasion for a dress this light and summery in SF.
Something tells me it’ll get way more use in New York. And let the record also show that this dress has pockets. Sold!
After we ate lunch (and yes, we ordered dessert), Hitha snapped these pics of me. I’m going to test out this whole outfit photo thing, at least every now and again, awkward as I am taking the photos and as poufy as my hair was in yesterday’s humidity. It’s kinda fun though — and it all but guarantees that I don’t meet friends in yoga pants. Or a bikini, for that matter.
