Today was the first really hot day of the summer. Naturally, we picked this particular day to go shopping.
Smart idea. Very smart.
Let me explain why.
Most people get used to warming temperatures gradually. They go outside, see the sun, their bodies sort of go with the warmth.
I, on the other hand, stay in. I don't like it outside. It's bright and the sun hurts my eyes, and did I mention all the bugs who try to eat me alive?
Also, our house is COLD. I've been wearing sweaters inside up until today.
So. Today, I woke up at seven after four hours of sleep. I tried to get some more shut-eye, but Husband saw it fit to let out the biggest snore ever. So I got up. Annoyed. At seven.
I wasn't really in the mood for anything complicated. I spent the morning writing and doing my nails. Toenails got black varnish, fingers Morticia-red.
And when it came time to put some clothes on, I sort of just reached in the closet, and took the first things that went together.
I chose a red bra, an almost see-through mesh top, and a two layer mesh skirt, which I've shown on the blog before. For footwear, I chose platform sandals.
Leaving home, the outfit was really nice and cool, but in a sun-warmed city... well, let's just say I'm a bit sweaty right now.
Just to be on the safe side, I took a shawl with me. Sis made this one. It's crochet, with lovely flower motifs. I got this several years ago, and it's gotten a lot of wear.
Shopping wasn't all that good, but I did pick up two tops. One red, one black. Just to celebrate red & black week.
Until next time.
Remember to drink lots of fluids.
