It's hot and humid today. So hot and humid this is the first picture my husband took:

He had to wipe the condensation off the lens with his tee shirt to be able to proceed. The air feels like soup, and even though my hair was dry when I left the house, by time I got to the car it was damp and frizzy and now I am totally rocking the Kip Winger ‘do.

So I had to have a picture with Emerson this morning because she picked out her outfit today. Yesterday she wore a turquoise skirt and watched Jimi Hendrix at Berkeley (it's nice that the kid likes music so we can get a break from the Sprout channel) so today she wanted to wear blue and she wanted to wear JIMI! It's amazing how much she learns and changes at this age, and gotta say the kid has great taste in music!

And this skirt… found in the attic, seemed exactly the same as my more expensive Calvin Klein skirt.  However… it's not.  May have flattered my pre-baby body but it's a perfect tube on me now, gaping at the waist, and sliding down in a weird way.  As the day has progressed, the skirt has stretched out in weird ways.  Not the best look, especially with the Kip Winger hair…

    Oh yes, these did have a bit of a breaking-in period. Love patent shoes but
    gosh they can cause blisters and such! I usually wear them around the house
    with socks on weekends a few hours before getting them out of the house, and
    then work them in slowly with a short trip, or switch into them when at the
    office. They don’t see a full day for a week or so after purchase 🙂

    I love this outfit!  I realized that I have similar look-alike options in my closet, and I think I have an exact match on your Nine West shoes.  Any advice on breaking those shoes in??  I wore them last week and they gave me the biggest blisters.

    Very attractive and flattering outfit.  The just below the knee skirt length seems perfect for you.  The low vamp shoes and minimal accessories create a very sleek and uncluttered appearance.  Nice …

    The muggy lens means it’s really really hot! Yipers. I’m so glad the weather finally broke (partly, at least) in Michigan today. We’re a much-more comfortable mid-80s today!

    I love your striped shirt and pencil skirt, what a timeless and stylish look!  You definitely can’t tell you had fit issues with your skirt, maybe you can get it taken in?

    Whoa! That first picture! That’s some seriously hot weather.

    when my niece was about a year old, she had a blue tshirt with Bob Marley on it that said “B is for Bob” — loved it!

    You look so fabulous in skirts with the tops tucked in. Love this look. Too bad this skirt was such a pain later in the day because it did look great this morning!

    I am so in love with striped tops – I wore one today too – and yours is fab. And little Miss E rocking Jimi, that’s just awesome.

    I think you look super corporate sexy! Although I know what it feels like when your clothes lose their shape throughout the day. I hate it when that happens.

    Thanks! I don’t feel it and will probably miss WW tonight because the heat &
    that place is sometimes not air conditioned (and because I ate a big filthy
    burger for lunch… I know, I know…)

    Holy cow! You look soooo skinny in this photo!  You look fantastic!!  (I am sucking at WW this time around.)

  13. July 21, 2011 / 7:51 pm

    This may not have worn well, but it looked fantastic this morning. You’re so slim and sassy!

  14. July 21, 2011 / 7:50 pm

    Because it’s very thin, and I push it up to my elbows 🙂 I didn’t find the
    extra couple of inches to make much a difference in this heat, and a
    sleeveless top wouldn’t have been appropriate for work today (I had to
    conduct an interview).

    I’m just having a hard time understanding how you could break out a long-sleeve shirt on a day like today! Ugh. It is nasty.
