It continues to be another scorching summer week here in Portland. Everyone around town seems to be feeling it–and wearing way less clothes, understandably so. I spotted this young Mainer looking awfully cute with a headband, short shorts and skateboard.

It’s hot as balls outside, and I haven’t tried on bathing suits in a store since C+C Music Factory was on heavy radio rotation. Join me on an emotionally scarring but ultimately empowering trip through the swimsuit jungle at the most sinister of destinations- THE MALL.
