You Had One Job

Dear Weather,

You had one job; to stay dry so that I could get outside on my one day off and shoot photos before my tennis match, both things which are now complete write-offs.  I would understand if you were just giving us a summertime shower here and again, but that is simply not the case. You are relentless, and you disappoint me.

I hope you don't think that your responsibilities as far as summer are over - I can assure you they are most certainly not.  This type of behaviour simply will not stand. You'd best pull your socks up - consider yourself on notice.


Now that that's taken care of, let's talk about clothes then, shall we? This is a silk Banana Republic skirt (last seen here) that I found at a consignment store in Minneapolis.  With a piece like this, it would be really easy to style it very matchy-matchy and go with the obvious black or white shirt combo. I always like to try and avoid that and mix it up a little - dress it down a bit as I did here. I like the juxtaposition of the chambray of the shirt against the silk, and the slide sandals give a little height (good for a pencil-length skirt) without being overly dressy.

Make it Happen. 


  1. Nicely done! I hope the weather takes its poor performance a bit more seriously and turns things around.

  2. Love the shirt, love the skirt, but I'm not such a fan of them together. Now that I've said that, it occurs to me that I would think it fine if they were reversed because I think anything goes with denim. Weird, I know. The shoes are the bomb.

  3. You sure are good at this. Such a great eye.
