Guys, it is SO HOT! Except for brief excursions outside the house, I hunkered down this week because of the heat. It topped 100 a couple days and was almost that hot yesterday, which for this area, especially for this time of year, is hotter than usual.
To cool down, we spent a little time at the neighborhood pool too, seeing as how Connor and I cannot resist a body of water (we’re both water babies to the core).
I’m hell bent on taking sun protection seriously from now on, so I’ve become the lady who wears a full-on ensemble to the pool. The other day one of Connor’s friend’s curiously looked me up and down before asking if I was wearing a swimsuit underneath my leggings and swim shirt, haha! (The answer was yes.)
For the record, I’m not actually wearing “official” swim leggings, but because necessity is the mother of invention, I repurposed these old Senita workout leggings into swim pants…
The top is made specifically for water wear, though. It’s by Altheta and I love it! It covers my bum and has pockets and thumbholes, so I can cover up my hands, too.

Got two minutes?
I’ve been listening to this all week long.
Well, I’m off to go put on another layer of sunscreen now! (Ha.) Happy Juneteenth to you. How was your week? What are you doing this weekend? 😊
