Outfit Post: Accordion Floral

Whooowheeee. It's been HOT here in Virginia. And humid. I am a fan of sunshine and summer, but it's been a little much.

I wore this outfit on Friday for taco and Target night.  I thrifted this skirt (it's Express Compagnie International, so probably circa early 90s) and it's definitely a summer wardrobe staple.

I am wearing the dreaded blogger-esque top knot--but to be fair, I'm wearing it because it was stinking HOT, not as a fashion statement (not that there's anything wrong with it! Except, if worn too high, it looks like a bizarre antenna of some sort.  Some people can pull it off, though!).  And on another note, I was wearing my hair like this in high school (sans bangs) because I always think that high, messy buns are an effortless and chic look.  I didn't invent the top knot, but it's also not new.  It's another summer staple (with lots and lots of bobby pins for my short bob baby hairs).

More hot weather outfits on the way, which will include lots of skirst and dresses. Death to shorts! I hate shorts.  I like how cutoffs look on other (tiny) girls, but besides that, I don't think shorts are flattering to many people.  What do you think?  Besides that, I love the femininity (and breeziness) of girly, pretty things for summer.  But running errands in these platforms?  Not happening. I need to invest in some more casual wear for 90 degree temps...but what?

Stay tuned...
