Hello Blogland!!! Greetings from what is evidently now the surface of the sun!!!It’s currently 98 degrees out at 6pm and forecast to hit 105+ degrees tomorrow. Seriously–I am DONE with this heat. Plus we have super high humidity so it’s extra steamy and sticky out. I am truly a cold weather gal.
I’ve been a slug staying in the AC as much as possible. The heat makes my fibro flare up and I ache like I’ve run a marathon with a 100lb backpack being beat with a baseball bat. BUT…enough whining! I managed to stop by the Brethren Thrift on my way home from work today. I love this place–super cheap and always a unique assortment of stuff. Clothing can be meh (way to polyester grandmaw stuff) but I can always find cool accessories and often craft stuff.
Today I spent the huge price of $3.50 and came home with some gorgeous silk scarves, vintage jewelry, a nice chocolate-brown button down fitted Dressbarn blouse (which is now in the wash and on my fall want list) and some vintage ties for the lovely Megan at MeganMaeDaily!
I can’t wait to see what Megan creates with these!!
Yesterday was a repeat of this maxi dress outfit entirely. I had a funeral for a co-workers mom to attend during work so I wanted to look appropriate and still be cool. I don’t know what is happening to society these day. We have become too casual in our attire. Someone showed up to the funeral in a t-shirt, cargo shorts, and flip-flops. He looked like he was going down to the 7-11 for a Slurpee and not to a funeral of a close family member.
It’s gotten so bad with people not knowing how to dress appropriately that our Garrison (army base) will soon have a dress code for the civilians who work there. There are grown women of a certain age (over 45) who think booty shorts and stripper heels are perfectly ok to wear to work. I am not kidding–these are people in high visibility managerial positions. And men who come to work in mangy tshirts and too-big jeans or sweatpants. They blow off any complaints because there is no written dress code. not for long!!
It was so much nicer when people took the time to dress up when they went out. now they look like they just rolled out of bed and put on the first thing in on top of the pile on the floor.
Enough ranting!! Today I went all pale neutral–which is super unusual for me-a gal who loves her COLOR. I felt very fresh in this outfit in the insane heat and may now look to adding more neutrals. I’ve certainly been inspired by Sheila of Ephemera’s June challenge capsule where she rocked the neutrals all month-long!
I’ll be highlighting a fantastic blogger who rocks the vintage and isn’t afraid to be visible from the UK on Sunday!! Everyone keep cool and I’ll see ya Sunday evening!!!
