Heatwave

My friend moved to Italy for a year of dissertation research – this is what I wore to her going away party last week (sorry for the poor quality indoor photos but it was dark outside before I finally got my crap together and got ready to leave for the bar).





pants: thrifted, Banana Republic / shirt: ModCloth / tank: F21 / watch: La Mer / lips: Revlon Firestarter


Oh, and check out these sweet shoes I snapped up at Goodwill in early July!




We are in the middle of an insane heat wave here (have I mentioned how much I hate summer weather? Fall’s where it’s at for me) so I plan to spend my day sitting in front of my air conditioner and working on the concluding chapter to my dissertation. Good times!

I love this outfit, it's perfect for the occasion. Yeah the heat is horrible here too. You walk outside and can't even breathe! So horrible!

Have a great day!

You wont hear me wishing for the heat to end... I'm perfectly happy knowing that I can run out the door in a little sundress and nothing else.

Chic on the Cheap

I wish we got a break in the fall, but it's almost as hot as summer, so - still miserable.

Kavery said...

I think the hotter it gets there, the colder it gets here. Love those shoes. Goodwill is a treasure trove for sure.

Pratishtha Durga said...

Love the outfit. And the silver shoes are a darling. Hope you get respite from the heat wave soon. It's raining in Mumbai, and I would love to see a bit of sunshine.

Have a great week ahead.
