New clothes update

It finally hit 85 degrees this weekend and I realized I need clothes to get me through the summer. I've been resisting buying new clothes, for so many reasons. One, I already have so many clothes. Two, I'm 60 pounds down, but I have more to go, and I don't really want to spend a bunch of money on new clothes now to only have to buy more new clothes later. Three, nothing in the stores is really inspiring me right now—the truth is that all I've been buying over the past five months are... workout clothes. But it's hot out there and, hey, at least summer clothes are cheap and cheerful. This weekend I picked up some pieces from the Marimekko x Uniqlo drop: some caftans, T-shirt, and linen wide-leg trousers. I had another order from Gymshark arrive as well, which is great. And I figure with a couple of casual dresses added throughout the season I should be OK. Last summer it rained for four months straight in Hong Kong and I wore Tevas.
