Every year, when it finally gets legitimately hot, I get super uncomfortable. The weirdness only lasts for about a day - and it's always the first day where it is too hot to wear any layers. I walk outside in a short skirt and a tank top and feel totally obscene, like I'm walking around naked. It's a really weird, freeing, bizzare thing. Anybody else know what I'm talking about?
This is the outfit I wore on that day. I added an extra (super-thin) sweater because I was so ridiculously uncomfortable. Haha.
All of these pieces cost practically nothing - the most expensive part is the shoes ($89). The sweater was $35, the skirt was $6, the tank was $7, and all the jewelry was either a gift or under $10.
I was only walking around my neighborhood so I was actually wearing flats, but later on in the evening I went out for drinks and added my new Tahari guys. Aren't they ridiculously cool?! Sort of space age-y, yet sort of organic/earthly in shape....I'm obsessed with them.
And NOW, for the most exciting news of the day...

You have the cutest clothes, the best fashion sense, and the greatest buying advice (the 100 words or less article was great)! Hope this flourishes and you become super successful!

I also had my friend repost it on her blog because I don't have one of my own (I'm much too boring) http://lizna.tumblr.com/post/4...
