Manila's weather temperature is really unforgivable. The heat that we're experiencing is beyond madness, I can't even go outside our house during the day because my skin can't take the summer heat, though I applied spf 5,000 (sarcasm) I just end up sweating and feeling sticky. That's why I've decided not to join any of my friends' beach outings this whole summer.
I wore a really big hat yesterday just to protect my face from the heat of the sun, thankful that this hat is not just for vanity purposes or just to complete an outfit that I'm planning to wear. I have always fancied the sleek and clean aesthetics of effortless dressing, and having to live in a tropical country definitely plays a big part in growing my love for minimalism.
