As it turns out, my favorite outfit for serious heat remains a simple jersey skirt that falls well below my knees, and a t-shirt. Surprise;). Which is to say, when it’s too hot for jeans and shorts don’t feel like me any more, well, here we are.
I am surprised that both top and skirt are from Eileen Fisher, not a brand I’d not been able to wear until I found this skirt several years ago. When it occurred to me last week that I might want to own TWO such skirts, in case one was covered in flour or pollen or lint as has happened, it was off to the mall.
The skirt in and of itself in this color would not have worked worn next to my cool-toned, easily-reddened face. Luckily, I rarely wear skirts on my head. Also luckily, this knit linen t-shirt comes in a periwinkle that makes my eyes twinkle so that I have to make you suffer goofy internal rhyming. (They call it “Light Coast” but I respectfully disagree, the color is not oceanic.) I tuck half the tee into my skirt, as you see, and feel insouciant. I also feel more traditionally feminine, less edgy than usual, but maybe that’s OK.
Also luckily, I own a pair of gold hoops as I hope you all might. (Note, if I were to wear my hair down, I’d have to go for stud earrings, otherwise, too much flapping. Oof, I hate flapping.) If not, here are a few to consider.
Finally, with the greatest of luck, these Mephisto wedge sandals still make my feet forget their sorrows. I have also bought these, which I am wearing repeatedly and like very much, despite the hint of island fishing grandmother style.
Can you tell it’s an optimistic morning in my house? If you’re feeling otherwise today, I send you all my extra cheer. Thank you for sticking around.
