Summer heat.

Yesterday, like the last couple of days, was just too hot to be productive. Almost all I accomplished was taking my dress to the dry cleaners (who I hope can work their magic and make it white again). To prevent melting in the summer heat I needed an easy/breezy outfit.
I wore:
Sunglasses - Drug store
Blouse - belongs to my Mother
Skirt - Ask Grace
Sneakers - Converse

When wearing this outfit I kind of felt like I belonged on a Country Club tennis court with a cashmere sweater tied around my shoulders (keep in mind, all my knowledge of Country Clubs come from television shows like The O.C. and Gossip Girl). However snooty this outfit feels, treasure it as this will be the first and last time that you will see me in head-to-toe black and white. The mere thought of an outfit lacking colour and dimension makes me shudder, thus the orange nails and sunglasses.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway, here.
