Daily outfit 10/12/2014

There’s no doubt about it, Summer has definitely arrived.  It’s been sticky and humid here, with a few thunderstorms thrown in.  The weather has been downright tropical, and I’ve been doing my best to keep cool.

My wardrobe choices lately have consisted of shorts and floaty blouses.  The lighter the fabric, the happier I am.  Today I’m rocking a new blouse that I got a few days ago.

I am wearing:

– Silver butterfly earrings (gift from a friend)

– Star blouse from My Pair of Wings

– Denim shorts from Target

– Tan sandals from Rubi Shoes.

Can I just take a moment to talk about this blouse?  I have a bit of an obsession with star-prints.  I’ve wanted a sheer blouse with a star pattern on it for ages.  I found this one in My Pair of Wings on etsy and ordered it without hesitation.  It arrived only a week later and I am so impressed.  The fabric is so soft and the blouse is hand-made.  I am really happy with the quality of this item and the price was phenomenal.  I am trying to move away from buying mass-produced items and doing my best to spend my clothes budget on small businesses instead.  Often, that means paying a bit more but I’m happy to do it.  However, this blouse cost about the same amount as one that I would buy from a department store, and it is so much nicer.  I’m very pleased with it.

My hair has gone nuts in this humidity.  I’ve been wearing it pinned up most days, but on this occasion I tried leaving it down.  Within a few hours it was a frizzy mess, and I had to try and wrestle it into a bun.  I love summer but my hair doesn’t.  Oh well, at least it’s somewhat better than when I used to have mega-long hair.

I’ve also been opting for sandals rather than closed-in shoes because of the heat.  My feet tend to blister very easily, and I have to be very careful to select summer shoes that won’t rub me raw.  These sandals were a bargain from Rubi shoes and they are super comfortable.  The straps are really soft and I’ve never had any blisters from wearing them, which is a definite plus.

What do you wear when the weather warms up?
