The August summer heat has been killing me. It may say it is the end of summer on a calendar but the heat is definitely telling me otherwise. Not to mention that I got the gnarliest sunburn from a 4-hour surf session over the weekend. Times 2. I did it twice.. I obviously didn’t learn the first day so I had to paddle out the next day and really take my skin for a test drive. You can probably tell from the photos that I am baked. My eyes too. I had a little freak out and thought I had developed Pterygium from only two days in the water. Rest assured.. it hasn’t happened yet. But I’ve definitely learned my lesson. I’m actually considering being completely covered the next time I paddle out. Long sleeve, leggings, hat. Goggles or sunglasses too.
The sun got me pretty fried. After a couple of days I am still trying to nurse the redness off. Combine that with being in a constant state of sweatiness and we’ve got problems. Dressing for these special weather occasions can be difficult. Indeed a special occasion. You don’t want to sweat all over your cute clothes but you don’t want to go prancing around naked (I actually would but it’s illegal.) I also had to keep my sunburn in mind. Even the slightest touch set off a small whimper from my mouth.
Luckily, I had these old threads laying far in the back of my closet. I don’t usually wear strapless tops or dresses but this was definitely a special occasion. It may seem strange but this little outfit helped me ward off any additional pain and my sweat glands from overworking. And it turned into a nice little number for the day. I loooove my Quiksilver corduroy shorts. It reminds me of my dads old OP ones he used to rock when I was younger. They are so incredibly comfortable and the color remind me of watermelons. Which I should be eating right now to ward of any additional moisture on my body..
..oh this summer heat!
