AHHHHHHHH today is SO HOT YOU GUYS. In the interest of complete self-disclosure and me not appearing to be better at frugality than I seem - yesterday I bought a few NECESSARY hot-weather items, namely:
- a sundress made of cotton tshirt cloth (to soak up the sweat and cool me off)
- 2 tanktops that literally wick the sweat off of my skin and make me less stinko (v. important when I'm biking to work in 30 degree weather [that's 87.7 degrees Fahrenheit for my US friends])
- a wrist cuff to put my iPod in while biking (because sticking it in my sweaty bra may lead to moisture damage)
Summertime link luurve!
