I am turning into one of those people who chooses outfits based on comfort and ease.  I used to always “suffer for the fashion”, and occasionally I still do. When the weather starts heating up though, tight restrictive clothes get left in the drawers. This dress, for example, is a tent.  It lets plenty of air in to circulate around, is made of a quick dry material, and there are no tight spots anywhere. I bought it in Japan (Uniqlo, obviously) last summer, and if any of you have been to Asia in the dead of summer, you know what it’s like to steep in your own sweat for hours on end. Japanese brands have breezy clothes figured out – linen or quick dry roomy pants or dresses is where it’s at for work. So dress tents (with pockets!) are in for the next 2.5 weeks!  Summer vacation is so close, I can just taste the freedom.

Speaking of comfort though, I love wood clogs – most of the time they are actually very comfortable (counter intuitive, I know). These oldies though, I’m just going to have pass on to someone else with narrower feet. I bought them while we were living in Brooklyn, but my feet must have spread more since then. Swedish Hasbeens run on the narrow end, and my feet are just getting wider and wider with age. Clogs really do last forever though, and I will keep buying them.

*Side note, you should all check out Insecure on HBO by Issa Rae. She is a favorite of mine, and the entire third season’s episodes were titled “__-like”*

One thought on “Easy-Like

  1. Japanese clothing companies launched a new Cool Biz brand 15 years ago after the government promoted keeping thermostats at like 82 degrees in the summer to cut down on air conditioning to limit carbon emissions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cool_Biz_campaign

    Men were encouraged to wear blazers (made with new lighter fabrics) without ties or ties without blazers. Dress shirts were also redesigned to be more stylish to compensate for the relative informality and the wicking technology was invented.
