Clearly, Jennifer Lopez isn’t about to let a little thing like the July sun beating down on her in the middle of the day ruin a good ’fit. The Halftime star was photographed at what appears to be a street fair or flea market in Los Angeles on July 3, wearing a maxi skirt, shades, and a long-sleeved black turtleneck, and walking arm in arm with husband-to-be Ben Affleck. As a person who dresses almost exclusively in linen tents all summer long, I am bewildered.
Jennifer Lopez completed her weather-denying look with chic gold hoop earrings, platform espadrilles, an oversized bag, and shades, with a phone in her hand.
Other questions that come to mind as I look at these photos include: What is this large plastic thing Affleck has in his hand? What is Lopez filming on her phone? Where are they, and did they have to get their hands stamped with the rest of the normals? How can it be both turtleneck weather and open-toed-shoe weather at the same time?
For journalism’s sake, I spent more time than I probably needed to do looking up what the temperature was in Los Angeles on July 3. I discovered that while it was not as skin-meltingly hot as it’s gotten elsewhere in the country lately, it was at least mid-70s for most of the day. Is this causing me, personally, more consternation than it should? Absolutely. Am I going to stop talking about it? Probably not.
Barely a day has gone by lately that J.Lo and Ben haven’’t been spotted out and about. Just the day before, the duo were photographed milling around a Rolls Royce dealership (their life!), with Lopez wearing wide-leg jeans and a white T-shirt, a combo that at least seemed more weather appropriate.
The superstar has also been spotted in a variety of DKNY ’fits, peasant blouses, and chic blazers that I assume cost the same as a house. I always knew she knew how to pull together a look; I just wasn’t aware that she was also impervious to heat. Amazing!
