Four things that help me through the hotness of summer…

1.  White tanks.  No matter how much I complain about keeping them white, they are always a safe bet with whatever bottom I want to wear.

2.  Hats.  Between the sweat, sunscreen and humidity, my hair always looks a mess during the summer.  Hats are good at covering up messes.

3.  No jewelry  (or very minimal bling!) During every other season I love to showcase my vintage treasures, but there is just something so nauseating about sticky, sweaty necks and wrists that drive me crazy.

4.  Midi length skirts.  Long enough to keep me covered, but short enough to stay far away from the mystery liquid on the floor of public restrooms…a true gem for the summer!

Now this is what warm weather is all about!  A fun (borderline crazy) printed skirt with a bold color on top.  This skirt is easy to wear because the print is in black and white…so basically any solid color top will work.  When I’m feeling really brave, I mix a printed skirt like this with a printed top.

I think I feeling brave…I’ll show you next post.

Weekend Heat Wave

This weekend was great!  A heat wave came through the area.  (Upper 60s in November…yes, please!)  Even though the temps are already back down 30 degrees, having a chance to take the kids to the park and get a little fresh air will keep me warm until next weekend.  We all live for weekends, don’t we?

Printed Wrap Skirt (and other marvelous finds)

05 May 2012 Permalink

Before I started blogging, my go-to color would be black.  See a cute shirt at the store…had to pick it up in black.  Adorable dress online…ordered it in black.  I’ve been trying really hard to stay away from black, and incorporate color and PRINT into my wardrobe instead.  It’s not as easy task…old habits die hard.  But this skirt is a mix of the two…fun-printed goodness and my old friend, black.

Do you like this wrap skirt?  It’s a new find.  I also found some more fun skirts when I picked this one up.  They needed a little hemming though.  So…the next few posts here will be dedicated to altering thrifted finds.   I’m really excited about it…can’t wait to share!
