What to wear when it’s insanely hot & humid…or what to wear when you’re living in a treehouse in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest. Haha. This was my one and only “fancy” outfit I brought along for our treehouse adventure. The rest of the time I was wearing hiking clothes and boots! (My roll-up hiking pants are the comfiest things ever.)
Usually, when it’s 100 degrees Fahrenheit with roughly 100 percent humidity, a lightweight sundress is the way to go. However, in the jungle, there are TONS of bugs. So, I needed to be as covered as possible but not wear something that I’ll sweat to death in.
That’s where these lightweight beach pants come in. I bought them in Rosario, Argentina from a Billabong supplier, and I absolutely love them. (They sell them in the US and Europe, too, but in different colors and patterns. Click here & here for some more options.) And as stupid as it sounds, a loose-fitting, lightweight, plain T-shirt was one of the best things I’ve bought in a long time. I lived in this while we were in the jungle. (It was worn multiple days, also with hiking pants!)
If you’re being really observant, you’ll also notice that I’m wearing a pair of flip-flops and my trusted Salt Water Sandals in this post. This outfit might have gotten worn multiple times, haha. Don’t worry I was showering! My hair is actually still wet in all of these photos, despite having been washed hours ago. It was THAT humid. I also didn’t bring my blow dryer or straightener or much for makeup. So, this is my natural hair texture and almost makeup-free face. Scary stuff! Haha.
I never took my JORD watch off during this trip either. I actually have a tan line from it that looks just awful. I guess I’ll be wearing this watch every day until it fades, now! Haha. And the bracelet, I actually made with the help of a woman in a nearby village. It was a really cool experience that I’ll be sharing in my next Amazon adventure travel post!
I’m already missing that treehouse! So much, fun! If you missed my post on it, click here. I’ll have a few more posts about our time in the Amazon soon. Friday’s post is going to be a bit different, though, with some major announcements in it…stay tuned.
