Heat Wave

I'm wearing:

1. Biker vest in leather, from Forever 21.
2. Oversized printed t-shirt, from ASOS.
3. Super skinny jeans, from H&M.
4. Leather black and white sneakers, from Gourmet NFN.
5. Silver bracelet, from Codes Combine.
6. Accessories, from H&M.
Get this look for $165+ on Lookastic: Black Leather Gilet, White Print Longsleeve T-Shirt, Black Skinny Jeans, and Black Leather Low Top Sneakers
If your an assiduous reader of this blog, you'll know that I love winter, cold weather, snow, trembling and all that jazz. Well, imagine my surprise when I come back to Mexico in the middle of a heat wave; I truly hate the sun, get tanned, sweating, everything involved with warmer temperatures... So, as usual, I'm protesting against Mother Nature by wearing an outfit that's heavily composed with leather pieces. I can maintain my coolness, stay fresh, even with 28ºC waves hitting me as I walk.

I saw this brick/stone wall near my house and thought it looked really cool, like a giraffe print. I felt it would make a nice balance with my black and white outfit and the print on my t-shirt. Moving onto that, I've always loved a good oversized piece and I love how these kinds of shirts are appearing to destroy the kingdom of cropped tops (which I heavily despise).

I think it's a really cool t-shirt to pair with a vest, given that the sleeves are longer and deserve to be seen. The key with oversized garments is that they have to give the feeling that they're meant to be that way and not that you stole that thing from your 300 pound uncle (I have one, really); super skinny jeans always look great with bigger top pieces and, as I said before, the leather and steel are part of my rebellion against the heat wave. MUST.STAY.FRESH.

// Si son lectores asiduos de este blog, sabrán que amo el invierno, el frío, la nieve, temblar y todas esas cosas gélidas. Pues, imaginen mi sorpresa cuando regreso a México y me topo con una onda de calor; en serio odio el sol, broncearme, sudar, todo lo relacionado con temperaturas más cálidas. Así que, como siempre, estoy protestando contra la Madre Naturaleza usando un atuendo que está primordialmente compuesto por cosas de piel. Puedo mantener mi lado cool, estar fresco, aún con una onda de calor de 28ºC golpeándome a cada paso.

Vi esta pared de ladrillo/piedra cerca de mi casa y pensé que lucía muy padre, como con estampado de jirafa. Sentí que haría un buen balance con mi atuendo blanco y negro y el estampado de mi playera. Ya que hablamos de eso, siempre he amado una buena pieza extra grande y amo cómo este tipo de playeras están apareciendo para destruir el reinado de las ombligueras (las detesto).

Creo que es una playera padre para combinar con un chaleco, dado que las mangas son más largas y merecen ser mostradas. La clave con las prendas extra grandes es que deben parecer que son así por una razón y no que se las robaron a su tío de 150 kilos (tengo uno, en serio); jeans súper entubados siempre se ven padres con piezas más amplias arriba y, como dije antes, la piel y el metal son parte de mi rebelión contra la onda de calor. MUST.STAY.FRESH.
Do you also protest against Mother Nature? Tell me all about it.
Love always,
Henry.
