The Breezier the Better: OOTD

It’s gettin’ sticky and hot here.  Those who know me personally recognize this as the time of year I get very close to needing anger management therapy.  I get so cranky when I’m hot.  It’s not quite pool weather either, so I can’t exactly schlep around to and fro in a suit and coverup for survival as I do in the summertime.  So instead, I opted for this breezy little number to wear on bottom.

Air flow: check.

Color of ‘serenity now': check.

I found this on our vacay to Seattle when we were tooling around Bainbridge Island.  I happened to walk into a main street shop with some surprisingly cute wearables and bolted right for this elastic waisted, pleated, lined, knee-length, pool-colored little ditty. Best part? It was $24. Bible. (that one was for you, Mare.) I actually accidentally dropped the skirt on my closet floor and it landed next to these shoes I’m wearing.  I looked down to pick it up and went: “Ooh….Ahhh.  That’s pretty.”  So I put ‘em on together.

Thank you fate.

When it’s hot outside, the breezier, the better, right? This will be heavily rotated in the coming months.  Hope y’all don’t mind the looks of it, cause we’re all gonna be good friends by the end of summer.

I’ve also been wearing these stacking rings a lot lately that I scored for $9.95 a few years back online. I’m a total sucker for stacking rings.  The only thing that bothers me about stacking rings is when water gets trapped under there every time I wash my hands, so I have to slide them off and dry.  I should just remember to take them off before my hands shoot under the faucet, but since I don’t wear them all the time, it hasn’t become a habit.

Anthropologie rings (name?) forgive the raggedy state of my fingernails. Musicians never have cute fingernails....

What little breezy things have caught your eye lately?  Something in the back of your closet you can’t wait to wear again? Or something in a store window you’ve been stalking? Pray tell.
