Happy Hour

I hate to say it, but I think spring has come and gone. Saturday I was playing soccer in beautiful mid 70s, and today it hit 97. Ninety-seven! Can you believe it?! A colleague and I had made plans to meet up for happy hour last night. I wanted to wear something nicer than a typical running errands outfit, but would keep me from breaking out in a sweat.



Top: Loft {similarish, option}
Necklace: The Limited {exact}
Rings: Charlotte Russe {exact on index, exact on thumb}
Shorts: Old Navy {same style}
Sandals: Target {exact}

When I bought this top, I had planned on eventually pairing it with white pants. I don't know about you, but 97 degrees is too hot for pants, so I thought "ah, why not white shorts?" I am really pleased with how this look turned out, even if I can come up with particular complaints about this outfit. (Necklace gets lost on print top, shorts are slightly too tight, sandals don't really work with this outfit.) How do you manage to put together a nice outfit for 90+ degree weather? Do you have to deal with this type of weather?

On a side note, today is my husband's and my two year wedding anniversary!

  1. Happy Anniversary! Aside from wearing a bathing suit or going naked, I usually wear a dress or skirt and a tank top. Less accessories the better when it's 97 degrees out also.

    This top is a fun print and it looks great paired with the white shorts. The sandals look fine too. You look pulled together and comfortable :)

  3. Most importantly, I love that you appropriately wrote "my husband's and my", because there are way too many "My husband and I's anniversary" people out there and it just drives me crazy.

    Actually most importantly, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!

    And finally, it is tricky to look cute when it is so hot and humid outside! I have a silk skirt that is super light and breezy that I tend to pull out on the worst of the hot days. I'm thinking some white shorts might be a nice addition, too!

  6. This is a Great Outfit. I agree 97 too hot even for Loose Pants or Cropped Pants. Shorts are Best.

    I want to give you s little advise though. You don't have to be nit-picky about each Outfit. I know that is part of who you are but seriously girl you look Fab 9 times out of 10. This Outfit is great though Casual for Happy Hour. The top is Dressy enough & I have previously showcased one of your Outfits with this Top, on my blog. The Necklace is long, dainty & I can still see it, you got Bracelets on (that dress it up, more). Last but not least those Target Sandals go with EVERYTHING. I want a pair or similar real badly.

    And, Happy Anniversary. June is a big month in Weddings. Our Anniversary is a week from today on the 19th of June. =)


    P.S. I miss you on my page and I am still looking forward to receiving your E-Mail about what we have talked. ;-)

    Take Care, Ada.

  7. Happy Anniversary!!! Wow 97 already?! It's mid 70s in Southern CA and I love the June gloom. When it's that hot, I tend to wear shorts or maxi dresses that don't stick to you. I have this top and have paired it with green bottoms and it's really cute with it. I think you look great!

  9. Happy anniversary to your and your husband! :) How exciting!!

    I love this outfit - the colors of your top look gorgeous on you, and I'm a huge fan of the white shorts with it. I'm terrible about getting dressed for the heat. I don't like to wear shorts and sleeveless tops, so I try to wear sundresses and flowy skirts as much as I can in the heat.

  10. Happy Anniversary!

    I've seen this top on you a couple times with different tones on the bottom and am sort of surprised how good the colors fit your skin tone. Without seeing it on my reaction would be that you would look washed out but you don't at all, it gives you a healthy kind of glow...or maybe that's just the anniversary...
