Easy-Breezy Summer Outfits

I happened to stumble upon ASOS earlier, an online store that sells both women and men's apparel, and fell in love with many of their items. These are the types of outfits I'd enjoy wearing during the summer. And yes, most of these outfits do show a girl wearing short shorts, much shorter than I'd feel comfortable with, but that's not the essence of this collection of outfits.

Summer in the Philippines is very much like being in a desert. Okay, that's a hyperbole, but not too exaggerated in my opinion. Though it is not extremely humid, there are days when the sun just shines down too brightly, and I feel like I am getting skin cancer whilst I walk outside. No wonder I'm getting fatter, anyway.. These outfits from ASOS do look quite spring-ish, yes? I think the season of spring was when floral prints and cream/pastel/nude colors were in season, but I don't think there is a reason not to be able to wear these spring-y outfits during the summer.

DID YOU KNOW THAT BLACK IS A COLOR THAT ABSORBS MORE HEAT THAN ANY OTHER COLOR? Did you also know the 'hot' colors (red, orange, yellow, etc.) absorb more heat than 'cool' colors (blue, violet, what-have-you)? Ah, well if you didn't and are currently confused, it's okay. I was too when I was taught this in science class. But I'm not going to go into detail with that. I just thought that these light and 'cool' colors would be great for summer, as they will be less likely to absorb heat. I sound like a nerd, but that's fine!!

When I look at these outfits, I imagine myself wearing them, and I feel like one of those girls in those commercials with the breezy and the beautiful and the cover girl trees and the wind. Oh, I think one of those deodorant commercials has popped into my mind. Anyhow, I don't say breezy meaning the wind will pull up your skirt, I mean the wind can still reach -- oh gosh do I sound like a pervert XD? Lulz. Oh gosh, how do I say this without sounding nasty?
