How to Dress for the Rainforest

It's hot, hot, hot, and it seems my plans have disappeared into the heavy haze of moisture that lingers outside my window.

For now, instead of sweating in the rainforest that my neighborhood has become, I'd rather lounge indoors with my laptop. You know how it is.

I bought a new skirt yesterday! Victoria's Secret is having a major sale, and my friend dragged me to the mall to check it out. I like the Pink line for the occasional overpriced undergarments I buy myself as a treat, but the clothes tend to make me feel like a walking billboard, covered as they are with Pink logos. However, I found the above skirt for $20, which made me pretty happy. I guess the silhouette isn't so new, but I like the way it poofs out in the middle and comes in at the bottom. And there are some cute nautical-ish buttons on the sides that you can't see from the picture. By the way, it might look like denim in the picture, but it's not.

I wore the skirt in a pretty simple way, I guess, feeling inspired by Lulu and Camille. So on went the skirt, a white AA t-shirt, H&M denim vest, H&M black beret, and Old Navy necklace.

I would pair my combat boots with this, if only it weren't so hot. . .

lady smaggle - Thanks! Although it's funny to hear you say that, since my legs are actually quite short...

makemoremistakes - It's definitely a lot cleaner looking than my usual looks, but I like it as well. And yes, everything's been pretty well, thanks:)


ashe mischief - Thank you; it is great for summer weather, except for maybe the beret.

k.b. Thank you!
