maxi dress, camo, and stripes

Holy hotness today!  It is a blamy 88 degrees here in New Jersey and I’m ready for spring to come back or for the skies to open so that some of this humidity can go away.
Today was one of those days where I stuck my hand out the window and deemed it appropriate weather for a maxi dress with a tank top and a jacket…then as soon as I set up my camera I started sweating like a pig.  That’s when I realized that sticking my hand out the window does not qualify me as a meteorologist.  Turns out people actually go to school for meteorology.  Hmph!
This maxi dress did keep me pretty cool even in the hot temps, however I had completely forgotten about the chub rub that the summer brings.  Probably because last summer I was running and didn’t have any–womp womp 🙁   
For those of you unacquainted with “chub rub”, please eat a cheeseburger or thank your parents for superior genetics.  For everyone else, I recommend Body Glide.  It’s amazing during running but works just as well for when your thighs become friendly with each other while running errands as well.  Tip: get the men’s version, it’s cheaper, has no scent, and is easier to apply.

Also I’d like to give a special shout out to my Instagram followers who helped me decide on a sandal color today while shopping.  In accordance with the popular vote (and what I was leaning towards), I chose the bronze!  Follow me on Instagram to help me with future shopping indecision.

Is it super hot where you live today?

    Super cute! I'm a huge maxi fan. I'm all to familiar with chubrub… and I can testify that you are 100% right about Body Glide. Even at my thinnest, my upper thighs remain inseperable, so I don't really have a choice in the matter. I can't get through summer weddings without it!
