Sweater: Thrifted Jumper: Thrifted Shoes: Frye Handbag: Dooney & Bourke

Ok.  So let me start by saying that this outfit wasn't exactly a wise choice given that its been 100 degrees for the past couple of days, but it was cloudy this morning and I had high hopes for a cooler day.  I was wrong.  The clouds just brought humidity with it, and I'm suffering at the moment.  
That's enough for a weather report, though.  Now the good stuff - I chopped off the bottom of this dress to make it nice & short - mainly because I was too lazy to take it to a tailor - and this blouse seems to go with everything that I own.  I was torn between wearing this cardigan & one that I bought yesterday but went with this one because I was in the mood for some sort of print  - I'll debut the new one soon enough.  I hope that everyone is adjusting to their week, and for all of my SoCal readers, stay air conditioned as long as you can!

I loooove the jumper. :) 100degree weather sounds insane... especially if humidity is involved. Hope the weather cools down for you soon. Happy Tuesday!

annierama said...

wow, I would be really happy if I melt while I´m wearing this outfit! But unfortunately it would be more likely that I´d be cold and chatter!
I love your cardigan and your blouse!

Thank God it cooled off in SD. Yesterday was friggin' hot. Today is like, muggy and cloudy, but still only 80 degrees or so. Geez louise! What a weird year of weather we've had.

lovelovelove this outfit. it's so perfect for fall... now, if fall would only show its face around here! the weather the last few days has been atrocious. but then again, we had a pretty mild summer here while the east coast really suffered - maybe this is their way of getting back at us. ;)

i have to leave my house before the sun comes up and it's freezing in the morning but as soon as the sun comes up it turns around 80 and up. i totally know what you mean, the annoyances of dressing comfortably for the current weather when it's just going to turn on you. But i guess i should expect it anyway since i live on the coast.

i love that you cut that dress. sometimes a frayed hem is better than a tailored one.

Mitzi Cocoa said...

You look so chic and yet so comfortable. I know what you mean about humidity. I'll leave the house and be cold and within five minutes of walking I'm far too hot!!! Ugh. Also, it makes my hair poofy.

sPam said...

The sweater is lovely! The colors look so luscious all together. I always have the same problem with the weather too. I live in a tropical country and I just put up with the heat 'coz I just love my clothes too much not to wear em! HAHA!

oooh, I can see the heat in your hair. In my neck of the woods, humidity is more frequent--and it will often make my hair feel like mud.
Stay cool.

Dana said...

The jumper is fantastic. And the colors on the sweater look great on you! I know what you mean about the heat - I want to break out the fall layers but here in the South, it's still pretty hot!

Aw that cardi is a great find, i love it!

Lydia said...

I think my favourite thing about your style (and I love many things about it!) is that you never come off trying too hard. You always look effortlessly put together. I am very very envious, ha! I <3 your posts!

Liana said...

omg i love this outfit! its perfect for fall...that must've been torturous wearing it when it was hot out though! love all the different textures! :)

Caitlin Shearer said...

killer shoes!

Amanda, The Upside of Wonder said...

I totally love all of the brown in your outfit. In fact, I think any color you wear is fabulous. You really know what works for you!

Oh, I sympathize with ya'll. Those temperatures make up our entire summer! It's nice that it's in the 80s here for once. It's almost kinda chilly ;]

i love the whole outfit, but i'm dying over that sweater. and those colors are def. making me wish Fall was here! Lol, you're like me though, the minute it looks a tad cooler, i'm piling on layers, only to sweat profusely the rest of the day... why is it over 100 deg. now that we're heading into October?

Kelly Lauren said...

the heat is so uninspiring. but you look so cute and make me wish it were 30 degrees cooler! ugh

Zoe said...

Aww you're so lucky to be enjoying hot weather. The hot weather came and left after a week and now it's cold again. What happened? This year has been quite a cold year, which is quite upsetting. I haven't had much of a chance to dress summery at all! Shame. You look fabulous, despite that fact that you're melting!
