In the summertime, skinny jeans suddenly feel like a sticky wet suit impregnated with your own sweat, sweaters make you want to rip holes in the underarm area, the slightest breeze feels like heaven, and the sun rays continually blind you with piercing intensity. You just want to wear something that doesn’t touch your body, something that floats. The best and worst thing about hot summer temperatures is that you can get away with, and often must, wear next to nothing. Showing more skin generally makes me feel uncomfortable, however, I’ve found a solution, and it’s really quite simple: the t-shirt dress.
As I was going through a blog-redesign binge in the wee hours of the morning last week, I realised that one of my sidebar categories reads: “Art”, and I haven’t featured an artist in over 3 months! :o So without further ado, let’s get into some art!
