So it seems that summer is in full force here in Michigan. The temperatures are hitting the 90s…and the heat index is officially in the 3 digit range. Even this girl from Georgia has to admit it is hot, Hot, HOT!!
So because of the intense Michigan heat (never thought I would ever string those words into the same phrase), I decided that I would have to change out of my work clothes (a light blouse with dark wash straight leg jeans) into something a lot lighter…and cooler (temperature-wise) before heading out for dinner out with friends. This is what I came up with (in the 10 minutes my husband gave me…I probably took 20).
Do you like the dress? I bought it online from Shade Clothing (which will be shutting down its website on July 31, 2013 – so go here for some amazing final deals) because I was looking for a simple, cotton gray dress that would be a staple in my closet. I normally wear it with a jacket, but there was no way I was going to wear a jacket in 90+ degree weather (I’m not insane…at least, not today). I just belted it, added a gold heart pendant necklace, and faced the humidity and heat.
These were also purchased online (wow! an outfit predominantly of pieces purchased while sitting in front of my computer) – specifically from DSW. I think I may have mentioned in a past post that I’m trying to be a bit more adventurous in my footwear choices. I KNEW I wanted to start with a pair of really cute red shoes. Lo and behold, DSW heeded my call and put these babies on sale online. To top it all off, I purchased the VERY LAST AVAILABLE PAIR! (Forreal…and they were my size and everything!). And for being high heels (again, we’re talking HIGH high heels…for me), they are quite comfortable. I just need to learn to stop tripping and putting my ankles at risk in them.
