I like this dress because it's basically a shirt

In retrospect, that may not have been the best way to describe my own piece of clothing. May give the wrong idea? But when the weather is like this, you use what you have. And I have a dress so short that it's practically a shirt. Perfect.

vintage blazer
h&m dress
born sandals

 Oh, we're getting extra-short there, aren't we? I'll keep my arms down from now on, promise.

Look at these little buttons, how cute are they?! Put the one through the button-loop on the other side of the jacket, and they're attached by the little chain! I wasn't really sold on the blazer in the store, but when I noticed the button detail, I couldn't resist

So, update on the zumba situation (if you haven't read previous posts, I went to zumba class for the first time last night, and was a bit worried, to say the least) - it was so much fun! I mean, I was horrid at it, but oh my goodness it was a blast! I've decided it's the cardio exercise for me. And apparently, after the first 10 classes or so you start to get the hang of it and don't look so stupid anymore! A girl can dream, right?

Babysitting the adorable next-door neighbors tonight, then I'm heading up to my friend's cabin for a little impromptu trip! As my cousins and grandma from Iowa are coming up to the cities for the weekend also, it's only going to be a one-day trip, and we're coming back tomorrow night, but still, should be fun! I haven't been up there at all this summer, and as we all go back to school in a matter of weeks, we're running out of time. And it's only two or so hours away (compared to my cabins four and a half...) so definitely worth it. Since I'll be gone tomorrow, think I'll put up a scheduled post of some new purchases that I haven't had the chance to show off yet? Probably... hope you all have a lovely weekend, get some sun!
