It’s so hot this week Portland hardly knows what to do with itself. Kevin and I went on a well-shaded hike (more like a brisk outdoor walk) and by the time we got home, all we wanted to do was go swimming in a lake full of ice cubes.
Instead I got dressed in my Day 10 outfit and we went to see “Bourne Legacy” in a comfy air-conditioned theater. (Has anyone else seen it? I thought it was just kind of okay, despite Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz being awesome at what they do.)
This is the opposite of what I did last year to max (har) out this dress’s usability, and while it went well, I think next time I’d go with a more structured shirt. This one was too thin and the seams of the dress showed through. Maybe I’ll be really brave this fall and wear it with a long-sleeved button-up blouse…
I cheated again and wore something photogenic to church, then changed into clothing more apt for 90-degree weather. Hint: it did not include a freakin’ sweater, what was I thinking…
I don’t get Romy. They constantly have “clearance” sales and the store always seems half-empty, but their stuff is really cute. What’s the catch? Is it going to fall apart in a month? I don’t really mind, because it cost $17 and I’ve been looking for a summery white lace dress for approximately my entire life. This baby isn’t see-through, is a decent length, and has flattering shape. And did I mention that it only cost $17? This here is a miracle of a dress. I’m looking forward to styling it like my Day 10 outfit and using it as a skirt. Now all I need to do is never spill on it.
