Yep, i decided to do some (needed) baking on the day it topped out at 97 degrees. Not just that. It rose to 90 degrees around 11:00am, then didn't dip below 90 again until around 8:30 that night. Brutal! So the next couple of days i was pretty beat, concentrating on getting enough water, rest, and shade.
Here's the 'Lady Pilot' skirt with it's buttons. As usual, when i get a new addition to my wardrobe i like to wear it kind of a lot - it's my 'new toy'. I really admire the self restraint of bloggers who get new things and wear them only once the first month. It's like only eating one potato chip and then stopping. Not that i know what that's like, either.
This eyelet top is basically my ubiquitous 'cami top' with sleeves added and a hook and eye closing instead of buttons. This last picture is very typical of my approach to clothes - a bunch of unnecessary fastenings, most of which aren't even functional (there's no pockets behind those pocket flaps, the laces could just as easily tied in the back, the buttons don't button (i didn't even make fake holes), and the belt isn't holding the skirt up or together. It just has a little zipper and two buttons on the side so i get get in and out of it.
You may notice i'm wearing shoe liners instead of peds in the top picture - a really nice change of look. Plus, they're black with white dots, so it was fun to see the bits that peek out.
How. Ever. They had huge holes in the toes after the first wearing. I feel my inaugural product review coming on............
