Well, for a few lovely days this last week, the weather had cooled down to below 100 degrees (and I wore a few of my never worn fall items but didn't take any pictures,) but now we're back up and over that mark...what a tease! Oh well. That being said, here's a mix of items that I normally wouldn't put together as some of the pieces I usually reserve for the cooler temperatures...
(Hmmm...this outfit was much better in person, some looks don't come out quite right on the camera...) I pull this together at the ridiculous hour of 5 AM one morning, at which time was somewhat cool and I'm certain that had too much influence on it.
The pants are lined which means by noon I was sweating but I love them anyway. The button detail at the bottom means I can change the look of them just enough to make them feel a bit more classic and versatile. And it's a little hard to see but I'm also wearing a knit vest over my top. (I'm crazy for knit vests for some reason, I have 3.) But the idea of anything knit or layered in 90% humidity is not so good. I shed it as soon as I got to my car, but to be fair, it was perfect for the overly air-conditioned grocery store on this day.
The beaded tank was a bargain! I think I got it for $30ish which I thought was a good deal for the details. But I admit that I don't wear it very often. I have it tucked in here but it's more of a tunic length and maybe it's just more of a going out/special occasion top. I hadn't really tried wearing it for a while but I do like it.
I guess I really am ready for cooler weather, there's so many things I can't wait to wear! What pieces are you dreaming of pulling out of your closet when the temperatures change?
