We didn’t expect the States to succumb to such a tremendous heat wave. I must admit, I nearly wilted at Disneyland. How do those families last in the midday sun? I was ready for a 4 hour-long siesta by then. And to think I did all the right things, I practised what I preached about packing: researched the climate, considered the activities, and packed accordingly. But of course, the weather is always full of surprises. For someone who’s been cocooned in the Melbourne wintery chill to suddenly be saturated by the LA sun, it has been a little shock to the system.

If New York doesn’t cool down a bit, my worst nightmare will come true: most of what I packed would become obsolete. If it weren’t for this little vintage LBD, my Soon Maternity “Miso” dress and Betty Brown tank dress, I’d have nothing to wear. An auntie gave this French strappy number a decade ago, I’ve never worn it before. However it’s proven to be a decent pregnancy frock. And when wardrobe emergencies occur, who you’re gonna call? Local Zara and vintage stores of course! More on this later…
We are flying to NYC soon. Apparently it will be humid and rainy all week… nevertheless we’ll think of ways to amuse ourselves. There are plenty of friends to catch up with, museums to explore, and fashion shows to attend! I hope you are having a beautiful start to the week!
[spoiler title=”中文版”] 没想到美国这么热。我必须承认，我在迪士尼乐园时， 差一点中暑。那么多家长带着孩子们是怎么忍受炎热的？每天中午， 我好想睡个4小时的午觉。这次旅行其实我应该做的都做了，关于打理行李：研究了气候，考虑了活动。但是当然，天气总让人猜不准。对于我们刚从冬寒的墨尔本直接达到太阳兆头的Los Angeles，有一点难接受。如果纽约不冷一点，我最糟糕的噩梦将会成真：我不能穿所带的任何衣服。但还好，我们有了借口去逛街！H＆M和Zara的发明不就是为了衣柜紧急情况吗？
