It rained all of last weekend, and it was the hot tropical kind. I for one love this gift from Mother Nature, but I know many do not. I often like to plan out my outfits for the weekend, but I had to change them because Mother Nature is a serious force to be reckoned with and my sequined gold skirt and nude suede sandals were no match for her (hopefully I can wear those this weekend). Like the saying goes, we make plans and God laughs. Although it was wet and gloomy, the humidity and heat were out of control so I went for covered on top, less on the bottom. I also sprayed my hair with anti-frizz serum but that didn't work out since my third day hair was a total mess (hence, no face shots today kids). But let's look on the bright side. Although it wasn't a good hair day, it was good for my existing wardrobe. I've had all of these pieces for quite some time now, so it was nice to be able to "shop my closet" for a day of laziness and homegoods shopping. I must say, this weather is getting me slightly excited for Fall! I have a wishlist post coming up soon so stay tuned for that! So far, the only Fall-like purchase I've made is this :

Surprisingly, it was my only buy from the anniversary sale this year. I usually get a few key pieces, but money has been tight these past two months since buying our condo. I'm excited about this little jacket though, I know I'll wear it a ton with denim.

Happy Wednesday Friends!

    1. Thank you Denise! I haven't worn mint on my nails all spring or summer which is a shame! I forgot how much I love Essie's mint candy apple ;)

  3. Thank goodness I already have Essie Mint Candy Apple or I would be wanting it immediately! The humidity was ROUGH last weekend. We needed the rain so much but I am definitely glad it's not always that humid here. Your outfit looks great and thanks for inspiring me to shop my closet a little more with this post and with your feature today. It's easy to get carried away. (Love your anniversary sale choice too!)

    1. It really was rough! I liked it though, am I weird?! It reminds me of Hawaii. I love the feeling of warm rain. I don't know what it is! Seems long gone now. I think we are going to make it to the beach this weekend :)

  8. Well for your one anniversary sale purchase, that definitely is a good one! Can't wait to see how you style it! And I love the details of your outfit, although I find it hard to believe that your hair was *that* bad! Can't picture anything but perfect! Carylee | morepiecesofme.com
