Living On The Sun II...

Yes, the temperature has exceeded 100 degrees Fahrenheit again today.

We have had such a "mild" summer that I think this latest hot spell has actually been more difficult for me than the last couple of LONG, HOT summers were. 

I really am not pleased with what I am wearing today.  Bland.  Perhaps even dowdy.

The unexpected heat wave is just sapping my energy.

I am just not myself.

I think today's outfit is actually proof of that.  Hee Hee

You tell me?

This blouse is very light.  Wonderful for a hot day.  I even like the color & cut but I think I have decided that the floral pattern is just "too old" for my liking.

What do you think?

Maybe it is just the skirt I paired with the blouse?

I don't think so.  I love this skirt.  You know that I am a big fan of the "pencil" skirt but I also love the A-Line cut as well.  It is just so feminine.

The problem with this skirt is simply that it works best with black and white.

I have some heavier tops in blue that I like to wear with this skirt on cooler days but that wouldn't be today... not even close.

I am exceedingly happy with my choice of shoes though.

These are just some of the best "girlie" shoes in my closet.

Who doesn't love a great heel, suede & a pretty little strap & buckle?

Like them?

So here we are...


Be kind?

Do I keep the blouse or does she deserve another home?

Have A Wonderful Day!

-- The Leather Skirt --


  1. I think the print on the shirt is cute and I love the blue color. I think maybe where you went wrong was pairing it with another skirt that can be read as dowdy, so together it had a negative effect. I think you would have been happier with the look if you put a pop of color or a trendier cut with that shirt. For example, maybe with an orange pencil skirt it may have felt less "old". Or if you had thrown a hip jean vest over the ensemble.

  2. This is a great outfit for a hot day. The top is really pretty.

  3. Yea, not a huge fan of this look - I much prefer the previous one :) xA

  4. I absolutely adore your heels! You can't get better than grey suede--LOVE it! I'm your newest follower :) Hopefully you get a chance to stop by mine :)
