I'm kind of weird. I love the idea of summer, but I always feel kind of uninspired when it comes to summer fashion. I face the same dilemma every year: It's 90°and I should wear shorts or a skirt. While that sounds great, I do a lot of walking since I rely on that and public transportation to get around the city. And lots of walking = lots of chub rub, and chub rub is my worst enemy. Given that situation, I should wear leggings or jeans, but then I will be hot. So, I usually throw my arms up and say, “Oh well, just aim for comfort and put on some yoga capris, a loose tank top and some sneakers.” But then I feel so mad at myself for stepping out in gym gear when I see everyone dressed so cute! Like I said, I'm kind of weird.

Well, this weekend, I pushed my limits, and put together this colorful (who am I?!) summer ensemble. I recently got these boho printed shorts from my Stitch Fix box and decided to pair them with this yellow (also comes in gray) bodysuit from Forever 21. I was heading out to a nice restaurant for brunch, so I wanted to top the look off with a burgundy duster cardigan to make it a tad more modest. I was feeling vibrant and summery in this look, until I sat down at a restaurant and noticed the under boob sweat accumulating and showing through this yellow body suit. OH. MY. GOD. I was panicking! "This is why I stick to all black gym gear," I said to myself. I ran home to change almost immediately. And for the rest of the weekend I thought about how I could combat boob sweat while wearing form fitting, thin, light-colored clothing. I wasn't wearing a bra, which was probably part of the problem, but I haven't really been able to pin point what I could do to keep under boob sweat from happening. Someone help! If you have any ideas or tricks you use to mitigate under boob sweat, please drop them in the comment section below!
