What to Wear When It’s Insanely Hot & Humid (Other Than a Dress)

Pants (similar) | Shirt (similar) | Sandals | Sunglasses | Necklace (similar) | Watch c/o*

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.

JORD wood watch

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!

    These photos are so fun! I love this casual look. And those pants look SO comfy!! I love wearing lightweight pants in the summer (especially to fight off the bugs…). I really like linen too but it can be so frustrating because it creases so much.

      Aw, thank you, Lee! I had really wanted a pair of linen pants too, but had been worried about the creasing – that drives me bonkers. Haha. Glad it’s not just me who likes lightweight pants in the summer!

    I LOVE this outfit! So cute. I love to wear pants like this to the beach for the same reason. I am a huge dress fan, but when you’re doing a lot outside sometimes pants are just better.

    This is such a cute post of your little treehouse. When it is hot and humid I don’t like to wear much of anything but a swimsuit, shorts, and hand me a very large squirt bottle. I can’t stand humidity eek! God bless you dear:)
