Too Darn Hot

Truth be told, I wore this outfit a couple weeks ago, when the weather here was up in the 90s. We hit a cold spell last week, so I decided to hold off on posting it until the sun came back.

When it's so hot outside that I can hardly fathom putting on clothes, a breezy skirt is an absolute must. I can't help feeling a bit self-conscious when I wear mini skirts (especially worn high on the waist, like I prefer this one), so my secret has always been donning a pair bike shorts underneath. (If, like me, you're not a biker, you can always fashion some out of a pair of old leggings. This is an easy way to ensure that random wind gusts don't "scare the children."

These gladiators were a sale score from a couple years ago. If you've been looking for an inexpensive pair of sandals, now's the time to shop! Sandals and swimwear typically go on sale in July.

Hope everyone's enjoying these dog days of summer! Personally, the cold weather lapse got me dreaming about fall... autumn coats... spices... scarves... mmmmmmm!
