On a whim, I bought a shelf-bra tank top (in navy blue) from Target ($14.99). I don't wear tanks very often (I believe I have BDD for my arms... only half-joking!), but in this heat, I am willing to go sleeveless so I won't die of suffocation in the gym. I liked it because it made me look athletic... it fits pretty well and has a nice racerback. It is not made of technical fabric, but it isn't too bad with trapping heat, anyway. To improve its look, I should probably wear this with a sports bra underneath, though.

Additionally, my Nike visor has been starting to fall apart over the past few months, and because I want to protect my scalp from the sun in a way that visors cannot, I got this Adidas Clima365 cap from Big 5 ($17.99) in white. This cap claims to have an SPF 25 finishing, vents, and is really a light cap. Best of all, it fits on what I believe is my huge head.

Okay, that's my brief "new gear" update. I will be on a slight blogging hiatus this week, as my comprehensive exam is this Thursday and Friday. Hopefully I pass so I don't have to retake sections next semester, but regardless, I'll be glad to be free of this beast for a while. I'm going to Hollywood Bowl next weekend to celebrate (though being uncultured as I am, this isn't exactly my idea of a celebration, but oh well).
