I did some reading and gave myself a pedicure, and finished up a couple little projects, and hit up three or four Goodwills!! =) It's been a long time since I've really been shopping. I desperately want to buy things for the house but have been really good at only buying things I'm sure about, since I don't know how it's really going to look when we get moved in. We still need a couch for the living room, but that's a daunting purchase! And even the bedrooms aren't designed. So once we get in there, hopefully I'll know where the holes are to fill. I did order this super cool grey/white sketch-ey zigzag sheet set from Urban Outfitters clearance, though--they have some great stuff! Gotta start somewhere.
Annnnnyway, it's kinda a good thing we didn't move on Saturday since we would have been packing the truck Friday night, when it was 99 out until like 8:00 at night. Thursday and Friday were ridiculous! Then it was in the 60's for my run on Saturday morning. Go figure.
But that leads us to today's How to Wear DIY! When it's too hot to wear anything else... like last Friday night's date night...
The lightweight cotton print strapless dress is perfect!! I made this one last year. Funnily enough, I made it right before someone emailed me a Sewing Circle question about how to make a SUPER similar dress Sookie wears on True Blood! I guess it's a great look for hot weather!
It was soooooo hot that night. Had to wear my hair up, of course, and mine is long so to keep it off my neck, the top bun was perfect! Too hot for jewelry, too hot even for much of a purse. The belt was really only my accessory, and it helps keep the dress in place since I've lost a little weight since I made it.
Other summer essentials: new fave Target wedges and orange Essie pedicure. It's a fun change from my usual red!
Shoes: Target via Goodwill. Belt: Nordstrom Rack.
Whew! I love the summer but am hoping for slightly lower temperatures when we actually do move this week.
