My Outfit Monday: Easy, breezy
IT'S REALLY FREAKING HOT OUT. Have you noticed?
With a story assignment that's likely to keep me outdoors most of the day today, I had to choose my garb carefully (a downtown hike for a coffee in foolishly selected red silk blouse on Friday surely hammered THAT lesson home.)
So I went for easy and breezy. Light fabrics that'll give me some airflow and hopefully conceal the copious sweat beads inevitably collecting underneath. TMI.
My white cotton button-down blouse is mercifully paper thin (cue big thank you for nude-colored bra) and nice and flowy. It was $20 and change from Zara a few months back. Don't let the long sleeves fool you -- rolled up, those babies take me right to chill town.
The pink patterned skirt is a classic grandma hand-me-down, priceless.
Topping it off (if you can see it) is my long shell necklace -- perhaps a subconscious nod to how much my body wants to be at the beach on a day like this. Got it for $1 at Life Treasures thrift store a few months back. I paired it with another long silver strand from Express.
I got my FAVORITE camel gladiator sandals on sale at Nine West like a year ago. I don't remember how much the final tab was, but I wish I would have bought at least three more pairs because I'm literally wearing them out -- as in, I had to tape the sole back together last week after I did surgery on the buckle holes to give them just a bit more time. I have yet to find a similar pair anywhere that I like enough to give these up. If anyone has any suggestions, please send them over.
