I’d Rather Be Naked

It’s a scorching hot week.

The kind where you feel like you’re melting when you walk outside.

But even though the thought of going nude (simply to beat the heat) was tempting, I thought it might be awkward at Costco and the park, so I donned the next best thing: a sheer tank and a comfy pair of denim shorts.

There was no point in doing my hair, so up it went on the top of my head, capped off with a Gussy headband. The booties lasted through the trip to Costco, but were replaced with sandals for the park as the temperature hit 90. Yeah, we didn’t last long there.

Apparently, one of the side effects of this heat is that it renders me unable to make eye contact with the camera, and instead can only look down or to the side.

  • Living out of boxes isn’t as cracked up as I thought it might be. {just kidding, I never really thought that} Don’t get me wrong, I’m giddy with every fiber of my body that we have officially moved into our new house!  Woohoo! But… My life is currently living out of boxes. Trying to stay one step… [Continue Reading]

    My Life is a Zoo
  • To all those that assumed this was a continuation of the last couple of weeks where I talked about marriage and how to retain your passion for one another… my apologies. Sometimes it’s just about fashion. I’m a Minnesota girl, and I love fashion and pretty things. But I also live in a very snowy… [Continue Reading]

    Knockin’ Boots
  • I have never been a Black Friday shopper. Honestly, I spent too many years working the retail end of this day to get excited about actually shopping it. I have lots of friends who swear that it is jolly good fun wrestle with others at midnight for a stack of sweaters or a big screen… [Continue Reading]
