In exactly a week from now, I will be on a plane returning to Houston. I will be celebrating my birthday as well as a very important and probably the most exciting tradition at Rice with my friends. To pay homage to this exciting time, why not have a Throwback Thursday blog post?
What I’ve learned from living in Houston is that when it’s hot and humid, you can wear whatever you want. Crop top, bikini, naked, silk underwear, nothing is going to save your head from the perils of frizz even a keratin treatment can’t repel. My quick solution, throw your hair into a messy bun and be done with it.
As for clothes, always wear something loose and that won’t stick to your body like static cling. My choice is a cotton shift dress, which I snagged at a boutique in China. Don’t mistake my dress for a brown paper bag dress – the crochet details and chiffon trim adds dimension and texture to what looks like a plain dress. A jean jacket is the quintessential jacket for spring and summer and mine is from a lá Gap (on mega sale last season). The boots are Shoemint and make me feel vaguely badass in the same way a bralette vaguely makes me feel like pre-pubescent teen.
