Although a lot of students already started their break, the first day of summer isn’t until the 21st of June. If you live in Southern California though, it doesn’t really make a difference seeing as how we don’t have any real seasons. 70 degrees and sunny is our norm, but there are those hot summer days (or months) that call for less clothing and drinks to help cool us down. This is how we do it

Snapbacks, sunnies, and tank tops with cold/frozen treats are the way to go. I probably could’ve gone with board shorts and flip flops in this look, but those don’t translate well outside of a beach setting. I mean, unless you’re going to the beach, the gym, or doing some sort of exercise, you probably shouldn’t be wearing board shorts anywhere else. Clothing aside, those cold/frozen treats always make their rounds in the summer heat. I prefer halo-halo (“mix-mix”), which is a Filipino delicacy that is basically shaved ice with condensed milk and a bunch of shit mixed in, topped with ube (purple yam) ice cream. They’re only sold at Filipino restaurants and fast food chains (Chow King, Jollibee, Red Ribbon, Goldilocks, etc), so you’re shit out of luck if don’t live in or near a heavily pinoy populated city. The good news is that exactly two years ago, Andrew Zimmern dubbed Filipino food as the next big thing, so this might be within reach after all! Either way, if you haven’t tried it, TRY IT.

Since I’ve spent some time selling you on Filipino food, I guess I should I give my peeps a shout out. So, to all my fellow pinoys, this one’s for you. Mabuhay!
