Yesterday I had to get to work early so no outfit pic (except for my sad bathroom shot on Instagram). But I wish I kept that outfit for today. After work I am meeting my husband and our friends for dinner at Eatonville and then going to see The Kills at the 9:30 Club. Yesterday with my striped tee and jacket, I wore my narrow black ponte pants from LOFT tucked into my black DUO boots. A perfect outfit to survive a very long day, and comfortable shoes to stand at a GA show. So today I knew I had to wear those boots or the booties above to have a good evening, and I needed to wear knits so I wasn't a crinkled uncomfortable mess by 8pm. This outfit isn't my absolute fave, but I can take the scarf off for the show and the cardigan if I get warm and not look half-dressed. Also it gives me a chance to use one of my newest Hobo International purses that I got at their fall sample sale – I love this one because I can tuck the strap in and change it into a clutch; it's small enough to slip under my arm, but big enough to hold everything (my umbrella even fits in it!).

I can’t think of anything better to wear to stay cool in the summer heat than linen and mesh. However, such fabrics can look sloppy, and are also known for being transparent. This look I wore for an outdoor socially distant event. It was a hot evening in July and I was comfortable the whole… Continue Reading Staying Cool in the Summer Heat
