Hot and Hawter

August 13, 2009

I know it has been a while since I posted, and I don’t even have vacation as an excuse!  Actually, what I have is the ANTI-vacation excuse.  I’ve been stuck working and doing all the daily things that make life… you know… life, and it has been TOOOOO hot around here!  Like, melt your mama hot.

Well, one good thing has come out of this heat wave: it gave me an idea for the post.  Why is it that even though I know darn well my av cannot feel the temperature, I still feel a need to dress her to match MY temperature?  Strange thing, that.  But, in this case, good, because it gives me an excuse to show off a couple of my favoritey favorite new pieces, which are madly appropriate for when it gets crankypants hot outside.

The first outfit is a casual romper from the new and deservedly popular Narwhal.  The green is super fun, and it has a great detail in texture and fit.  And, it couldn’t be more perfect for a hot day of running errands.  I paired it with two tanks, in yellow and pink, from Ohmai‘s collection, and my absolute favorite belt from Reek.  It changes texture, and what textures!  Gumby, Mario Brothers, Star Wars… the fit is great, too.  To top it off, I slipped into my creamshop flip flops.  LOVE!  SQUEE!  They are soooo cute, and the skin is truly easy to match, with little painted toes peeping out.  I put these on, then wore them to go out and buy a few more colors.  🙂

The second outfit is slightly more refined, but equally breezy and cool.  The Haver tiered frock from Whippet and Buck is stylish with the color blocking, and the tiers!  They attach at three different points, for total flexibility and a perfect fit, no matter what your proportions.  The shoes from Maitreya are in heavy rotation for me, and I can’t get over the awesome bows around the ankle.  Total, complete cuteness.

I love my hair, but lord, I can’t stand to have it on my neck when it is hot out!  So neither can my av, apparently… the pigtails are courtesy of W&Y, and the frantic spikiness of the “tails” makes me grin.  With all this color, I had to break out a skin from Curio, the Tulip makeup in the April skin.  Flushed cheeks seem appropriate, no?  I tried a more polished route with the dress, pairing the Allison updo from the brand new fri.day with a great new(ish) skin from Atomic.  The nude colors really show off the tan sheen on the skin, I think.

And… that’s it for now!  It’s time for my afternoon popsicle.  See you soon… stay cool!
