See The World Clearly Now

It's hot in Dallas. I'm sure this is not news to you. It is hot. It zaps your strength and melts your face. It makes the small of your back sweat just to step outside or walk to the car. But INDOORS, it's cold. (Like an icebox some places.) I cannot understand how they afford to do it, but it is. And as such, I still bring a sweater everywhere I go.



Do they do that everywhere? I know office buildings are terrible about it, but what about the theater? Or restaurants? It's crazy. It makes it so much harder to acclimate to the heat!



I look so tired in these pictures. It's because I am. I feel life crashing over me in tall, fast waves. But I'm holding on. Good things are coming.

I love the bold bright sweater next to the bold bright bag. We don't overly AC here in NY, we just deal with the sticky humidity.

I hope things stop crashing soon. Hang in there lady!

Yes, they do that everywhere with the A/C. It's so irritating. But it's kind of cool because it allows you to keep wearing cute cardigans all year.

I have that dress in grey and in white. I haven't styled the grey one on my blog yet but I wore the white one on the 4th.

BTW I really like the bright cardi and bag with the grey dress.

Yeah, Dallas is definitely horrible right now. I don't know how you stood outside in a cardigan long enough to take pictures. I almost passed out walking to the mailbox in jeans today.
Have you looked at a 10 day forecast? It's just depressing.
But the good news is, you look great! But then again, you always do!

Love the lace dress. And yes, they definitely do that in theaters (At least here in TN). Just saw a movie today and froze to bits.

I have that dress in cream and it's such a staple piece in my closet. I love the way you've styled it.

I kind of love the freezing indoor temps. I hate the back and forth between the coolness indoors and the heat outside but I'd rather be too cool than too warm. That bag is fabulous, I love the print and the way it works against the sweater. here's to an early fall, hopefully...

It is stupid hot!!!! I'm never cold this time of year, no matter what store/office/mall I'm in!

I know what you mean - I wear scarves all year long because of the AC in my office! Love this outfit and I also love the new photo format-thingy. :)

This lace dress is lovely, and I adore how you added your own funky style by pairing it with the bag and cardi - pattern mixing, fun, a little earthy - totally cool!

Gracey said...

That bag is crazy amazing! I heart it very much.

And you look smokin' hot in that dress - great length for your legs.
