Sometimes I'll put my arm up behind my head

Thursday, March 31, 2011
It was 90degrees today. Jealous? Don't be. Chase and I don't have air conditioning or a pool so we suffer except when I'm at work (where there's air conditioning, but still no pool, boooo) so Chase just suffers.

Are denim jackets still out? Because I don't care. (See how much I don't care here.)

  16. I'm sick of the 50 degree weather over here, so I am pretty jealous of your 90 degree weather! & I'm also jealous of your maxi dress. You look so lovely in it! I'm still trying to figure out how I can pull one off, since I'm so short.

  23. I have to admit I am a little jealous - there's still snow here! I feel like I'm living in the Arctic! I can't wait to dig out my navy maxi dress and my nude wedges:) Great outfit and thanks for being such an inspiration!

  26. Lovely dress and the denim jacket adds the perfect edge. I love the pop from the necklace too.

  27. So impressed with how you style this maxi dress, since maxi dresses are my Achilles Heel of styling. They're so hard for the vertically challenged like me. But I love how your outfit, and the dress, totally accentuates how teeny tiny you are! Enjoy the sunshine this weekend!

  28. I now definitely have to re-think my dislike of maxi dresses! This looks so cute! I love cheap clothing that looks good haha, gotta love F21!

  34. Hey! You totally stole my pose! *GRIN* JK! Blogging for almost 2+years, poses can become...mundane.
    I love the maxi dress/blue jean jacket combo! Oh, and I wear blue jean jackets too, so we'll pretend they're in style!

  35. No way, denim jackets will always be in, depending on how they are worn and cut! I just wore one a few days ago... but in 90 degree heat? You are brave! At least you look cute.

  43. You look super cute and super skinny in these pix. But no A/C - I would die. We had snow in OH on Wednesday, about two inches, and the trees were covered. Spring get here already. This is crazy. I'm a little jealous even if you don't have A/C.

    I am coveting your tastes in heels and shoes...of course your work clothes as well...

  53. Denim is still ok in my book. I still wear mine and if it's out then I am going down with the best of them.
