|I'm sorry, I didn't mean to have my "I will kill you" face on.|
It was 109 degees today, Fahrenheit of course, and I wanted sweat out all the liquids in my body. Whooo~ gotta love me some AC, but onto the outfit. ;) This combination is something that I wear often and enjoy wearing out in the summer weather. The orange and grey sweater is very old and from Urban Outfitters, while the white ruffled dress is equally as old but from H&M. I wish I had gotten it in a larger size though...the dress immediately shrunk down after I washed it. I think it's still quite wearable, as long as I don't sit in the position like the picture above...pretty sure I was showing my cooch to everyone, but the white and ruffle-y combination is still one combination that I'm always drawn towards.

I didn't really dress up this ensemble, I usually wear a thin leather belt around the waist, but as usual I left the belt up in Canada, so I went pure. Just the sunnies I've been wearing all summer and a couple of modest pieces of jewelry. I've been trying to build my jewelry collection up to include statement necklaces, cocktail rings and bracelets, but my skin is so sensitive I always need "hypo-allergenic" everything or else I break out into rashes on my fingers, wrists, neck and earlobes. Gross, huh? I'll definitely share anything I find with you guys here on my blerg, but if you have anything particularly sensitive lady friendly I'll be more than happy to check it out. =)
As for the Sam Edelman Yelena Sandals, which are quickly becoming one of my most complimented items of footwear, I originally saw them on Buy Now, Blog Later; Laura, the lovely lady of Lollipop26 fame, and I loved them to death (I think she's actually wearing them in her most recent post as well, she looks very glam). I had bought them on sale from Nordstrom's, but I think now they're on sale for even cheaper. The chunky block heel and the marriage between the metallic and leather just screamed the perfect summer shoe.
Unfortunately, Laura is right in saying that these shoes take a while to break in. They're still a little bit uncomfortable for me, but I have high hopes the leather will gradually mold to my dagger shaped feet. Thanks for coming and reading guys. =)
I have a question for you though, what are the best ways for you to break the summer heat?
