Shirt: J Crew ; Skirt: Halogen ; Belt: Nordstrom ; Boots: Sammydress
Spending my day listening to John Denver and Jackie Wilson (strangest combination, I know!) and working on exciting things for the future of the blog. It reached 80 degrees today which is fab, but of course it comes after torrential rains yesterday. My hair is twice its normal size thanks to the humidity and I keep tossing it from one side of my head to the other to help calm it. But anyways - 80 degrees! Guys! That's like shorts and tee shirt weather! Of course, I worked today and as it was chilly when I left in the morning, I went instead for a flippy skirt, boots, and button down.
My mum bought me this skirt last weekend as an early birthday present. I haven't owned a flippy little circle skirt in years and it makes me feel all young & fresh again! It reminds me of this outfit I wore back when I was 17. I don't have that skirt anymore because it quit covering my bum but oh my goodness I was so adorable at 17. I never feel very grown until I see photos like that. But, I felt pretty young and sweet wearing this skirt today, swishing from side to side when I walked, twirling in my boots just to get a few extra flips out of the skirt.
To keep things a little more classy & professional, I went for a black-navy-red colour combo. I already cannot wait to take this skirt out for another spin around the office!
You guys, this humidity is ridiculous. Living in the land of 10,000 lakes means summer heat makes you feel as if you're swimming through the air. And it doesn't do any favors for my insanely textured hair. My hair shaft just soaks up moisture like a little curly sponge.
I have a lot on my plate for the blog. I'm working on a couple of awesome guest posts and am currently coding an entirely new layout - getting back to my web designing roots! When I was in elementary school, I joined Neopets and immediately got swept up in this little community of coders, learning HTML, CSS, PHP, and all that good stuff. It's been a long time since I've done anything like this, and I'm excited to get back into it and be able to customize the blog to be less bulky and more my own. I'm also hoping to get out and enjoy the fabulous weather we'll be having for the rest of the week!
Stay cool kiddies xx
