Hot Time in the City

There's no doubt about it, in New York City IT. IS. HOT. 
And when it's hot, I don't know about you, but I don't feel very inspired to look nice. 
Let's face it, your make up pretty much melts off your face, the clothes on your back stick to your skin, you get dehydrated, sweaty and all kinds of agitated easily. 
When I saw that it was going to reach the high 90's today I threw my head back and sighed, but then I thought..."No! I see you, Mother Nature, with your sweltering Summer heat, and I raise you a hat, checkered shorts and a light-weight white top... AND HEELS!" 
Outfit assembled, I took one look in the mirror and still cringed at the thought of putting any sort of makeup on, but then I thought of it - RED LIPS! Done and done. I walked down the stairs of my apartment building, still feeling the comfort of air-conditioning, and couldn't help but feel like I had already triumphed just by trying. Out the door I went and, well there's no denying it - I was assaulted by some seriously thick, hot air. I was indeed a shiny mess by the end of the day, BUT my lips remained intact! Hooray for Ilia's Crimson & Clover !
