{outfit} A Sudden Change of Plans

  Thursday, July 19, 2012 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,, 
I wasn't planning on leaving my house yesterday but after lunch I decided to call my dentist to make an appointment since I haven't been in a year (oops...) and they happened to have an opening at 4:30! Gotta love when things work out nicely like that, I got it all over with in a day. It was hot out but I knew that the office would be a bit chilly (as most offices are) so I wanted to wear something that would keep me cool outside but not freeze inside. Solution: this Splendid top (which is actually part of a tank dress/top combo!) It's breezy but has sleeves...

Top: Splendid (net-a-porter sale) $48, Skirt: made from old dress, Sandals c/o Sseko Designs, Bangles: old, Rings: Mom's, Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop), Watch: Michael Kors

But, as nature would have it, a short while after I took the above photos thunderstorms decided to roll in making it impractical to be wearing a skirt that could be blown in the wind.  I do wear shorts under skirts/dresses but I would still prefer to not give people a show. ;)  So I switched the skirt for some American Eagle boyfriend jeans and off I went!
