Five Favorite Pins: Hot Hot Heat

Someone please, please throw a bucket of water on us. We're melting. The sudden heatwave this last week has got us fired up in a big way. We did everything we could to fight it, but mostly these efforts were thwarted by a kind of confused haze.

As in, why did we think we could walk a mile out of our way on a time crunch in 95˚-and-sunny temps? Why did we not line the freezer with popsicles beforehand? Why did we even attempt to blow dry our hair today? Sometimes you have to admit when you're fighting a losing battle. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, and so this week, we took our Pinterest inspiration directly from all that hot hot heat, seeing vibrant reds and oranges all around. Considering how beautiful the colors are, we can't really be mad about how things turned out.
