Its disgusting out today - already 73 degrees this morning, all the windows of the house were steamed up when I awoke, and major thunderstorms are headed our way... sticky, sticky, sticky! But when the tights have been unleashed, there's no going back. I might look a-fool outside, but inside, where corporate masterminds dwindle their fortunes away on A/C bills, I am happy as a clam!
The tunic dress arrived cheerily in my In-Box yesterday... free with Gilt credit! Which Evs likes to point out is not actually free, but we'd never get anywhere with that Glass Half-Empty Attitude now would we? I'm digging it even more paired with black leggings and either booties or stilettos but I'm not sure AF is ready for that look just yet.
Edited to add: I was just told by a (male, obvs) colleague: "Wow! You look bright today... like a big orange peel!" This is my life. Everyday.
You may have guessed by now that I throw "leopard" in the same category as "black" and "tan." I've gotten more wear out of my Serengeti Juliets than any other shoe in my closet - they are the only animal print item I own and, were a fire to break out in the house in the middle of the night, I might just make a little pit stop to the shoe rack to save these puppies (although I suppose if my originals ended up charred, I could justify purchasing the new model... hmmmmm).
Close-up of the neck-detail and my latest attempt at funky necklace layering. The gold coin (look closely - its a cheery rooster!) has a lovely story that I shall share someday when I'm not itching for a huge cup of coffee, but Mi Padre had the coin set into a necklace as a wedding gift - muy, muy especial a mi!
