I’m having mixed feelings about this summer’s weather. On the one hand, I thoroughly enjoyed going outside without melting. On the other hand, I only went to the pool one time and the water was too cold to swim. Back on the first hand, it was nice wearing all my cute cardigans and blazers to my internship. And on the other hand one last time, it’s usually the dog days of summer that make me fed up and ready for fall.
Anyway, just as I was coming to terms with the fact that fall is almost here (I did go back to school this week, after all), it FINALLY got hot. Where were these temps when I wanted to play outside in a sundress? Instead it has to be 90 degrees outside when I’m inside studying. So I somehow have to figure out an outfit where I won’t die in the heat walking to the law building OR freeze to death in my law review office. (Did I mention I have an office? Baller status.) I’m patting myself on the back for buying this jacket in the spring. And I’m patting my mom on the back for buying me these shorts. My mom and I are the smartest people I know. The dumbest person? Whoever makes the weather happen.

It’s the Remix…
Earlier this spring when I was on the fence about getting a floral blazer, I’m pretty sure it was this pin that put me over the edge. “Oh, it looks good with a striped dress? I’m in.” I had a different color scheme to work with than my inspirer Julia (of Gal Meets Glam) did, but I still love how this came out. Since my dress and blazer were warm colors instead of cool, I went for a tan belt and shoes instead of black. That’s the story I’m going with anyway. But I also just don’t have a thin black belt.

I’m not proud to admit this, but I bought this shirt while slightly under the influence of alcohol. After having a drink after work, I went to Nordstrom with a plan to only buying foundation, but I somehow ended up on the second floor at a sale rack, where I found this shirt. I was OK to drive but not OK to shop, apparently.
I had every intention of returning the shirt because I really didn’t need it, but every time I physically touched this thing to take it out of my closet, I couldn’t bring myself to let it go because it is just so soft. Come to think of it, maybe I was just under the influence of fabric, not alcohol, when I got this. Now the tags are off and there’s no turning back!
