Hot Chick in the City - Orange-a-rama!

We are currently experiencing a heat wave up in my neck of the woods (west coast Canada): it was 32 degrees when I walked home! It rarely gets that hot here - that's like the middle of August! Oh, that's...mid-90s for those of you on that other temperature system.

Anyway, I am fanning myself because I am sweating like mad:
That's right, I'm sweating. I don't "glow" or perspire - I sweat, haha!

Would you believe I actually took a jacket to work to wear with this? I didn't wear it, not even in the air conditioning. This is an old favourite combo (I like this much more than last week's coral/patterned skirt mix - by the way, I consigned the skirt on the weekend with a bunch of other stuff for $60 trade-in value - yee haw!). I love the colours in the skirt - and it has pockets!

The stuff:
These shoes get a lot of wear. Easy-peasy accessories.
Heh, it's so hot, I am actually lounging around the house in the cami and the skirt. It's too hot for jeans.

It's L's birthday today - happy birthday, my love.

T-shirt (InWear), cami (Mexx), skirt (Mexx), shoes (Nicole), earrings & necklace (Plum).

  4. I do love that skirt. Can't believe it's so hot there. We're still languishing in 50F mornings and highs in the mid 60'sF. 76 today though, I'm going to enjoy that.

    Happy Birthday L!!

  5. Love the orange...(as I say to myself...mmmm what orange do I have in my closet?)

    Send some heat over here. It has been foggy and raining all week here in northern California, and I am ready for some sunshine!

    Bare legs, sitting outside...sigh... enjoy for me!

  7. Citrus colors looks great on you! My skin tone is too pink, ruddy so I can't wear them as much.

  8. Thanks, Tina - this is one of my faves.

    Ugh, that is the worst, Wendy. Little sweaty smiley faces, those are.

    Mervat, thank you!

    Sal, you know I'm not a natural redhead, right? :)

    Alison, I am dying. I am a delicate west coast flower wilting in the heat.

    Erin, I adore orange - it's such a great colour. I will happily send you at least 10 degrees. It's too hot to enjoy!

    Kaylyn, thanks!

    Sher, thank you - I am like that with any pinks. Ugh.
