You know what’s awesome? Being away from the Southern heat for ten days. After a brief respite where I wore both pants and long-sleeved things (though, don’t worry, I didn’t take a single outfit picture to commemorate this), I’m back in the trenches of the blazing North American heat that many of you are currently “enjoying.” Though I do derive some small comfort from others suffering through just a few days of that which I get for five months out of the year. Schadenfreude over.
These outfit pictures today come from before my trip.
This is the blue version of my mullet skirt. It was way too hot for a cardigan but this tank is both a touch of a neckline offender and, because it’s basically the same color as me, can appear pretty naked-y up top. I believe I was going on campus that day so the cardi helped make the outfit less of a problem. Because, clearly, just changing my shirt wasn’t an option.
I’m not usually a wearer of multiple different tones of the same color but, I have to say, I liked this pairing. The light dove grey between the two certainly helped too.
Like I said above, I didn’t take any outfit photos while on my travels but I do have the following partial, not-super-flattering-when-cropped photos that give a reasonable snapshot of my trip. Not coincidentally, both are wine-related.
This one’s in Oslo.
This is from Paris, right before some fabulous steak frites and, even later, a pretty amazing pistachio creme brulee.
How’re your summers going so far?
