Bell Sleeves in Tropical Weather.
I just got back from spending the last couple weeks in Cebu, Philippines and I definitely have to say that trying to look decent/presentable in such extreme heat is always a challenge. When average daytime temperatures run somewhere in the high 80-90s Fahrenheit, sometimes all you want to do is slip a thin, loose tanktop on, some light shorts and slippers and call it a day. I was admittedly a little worried about bringing anything with long sleeves to the Philippines because of the heat this time of year, but this black “Wildest Lovers” bodysuit from Tobi was breathable so it worked well for transitional late afternoon/early evening attire. I’ve also been trying to find bodysuits that fit my petite frame well for a while (a lot of them are too long), so I was very pleased to find that all the bodysuits I snagged from Tobi for this trip fit really well.
I paired it with some simple shorts from American Apparel, a crocheted floppy hat that I bought in Mexico early this year, and stacked silver jewelry on my neck and hands to add some shine. The bell sleeves definitely give this look a more feminine touch, and they’re great for added protection against those pesky mosquitoes.
On my neck, is our Same Matter “Change” pendant wrapped around twice to make it a choker, and some really pretty, dainty pieces from Rose Gypsy. On my fingers, is our Same Matter “GoodTravels Infinity Ring”, stacked pieces from Young Frankk, and a double cuff ring from Covet & Keep that reads “No shame, no regrets” in braille. The lip color is “Backtalk” from Urban Decay‘s new Vice Metal Meets Matte lip palette.18 awesome people like this post
