so. hot.

So, this skirt is a little longer than what I would usually wear (I just don't like things near my knees, I don't know why. Unless it's a full-length skirt, but those just don't look good on me anyways. So short it is) but it was for church and I liked the color so I thought why not. Stole it from my mother if you're wondering, and it's surprisingly not too small for me! She's tiny... Done rambling now. But yes, as I said in the title, it's so hot outside. Like, extremely hot.

 After taking these pictures I went and changed into golf clothes (with the least amount of fabric that I could get away with on the course) and attempted to play some golf with my dad. Not the best plan. Even in a golf cart, the humidity and the heat was so intense that I only made it through 6 holes... and I didn't even play about 2 of those... I know, I'm a bit pathetic. Heat does that to me. Oh, and since then I changed again to go to a movie with my friend. Into the shortest dress I own. Appropriate? Perhaps not. Necessary? Most definitely. I'm still kind of overheated to be honest. I tell you, Minnesota really is the land of weather extremes.



So this skirt is naturally even longer on me than I already have it pictured. So I decided to use my little brown belt to make it into a sort of paper-bag waist and hike it up a bit. But the color is nice, and I liked it in combo with the tank top.


 Sooo, I've worn my Toms every day since I bought them. Problem? Maybe... I know, some people I've talked to really aren't a fan of them, but I love them! They are so comfortable, and they seem to go with everything with my wardrobe (they're navy, my wardrobe is navy/other neutrals with small amounts of color sprinkled in - perfection). Wore them yesterday when I volunteered at the carousel for 4 hours yesterday, and my feet didn't hurt a bit! Doesn't mean that 4 hours isn't wayyy too long of a time spent on your feet corralling small children onto a spinning ride (so. dizzy.) but still, it helped.

Ok, we are heading out for some Thai food, so I need to wrap this up! Not that I actually have anything else to say about my life, not really - except that Beth and I went to Horrible Bosses (and snuck in some coke and Cafe Latte cake - yummy ^^) and it was actually hilarious! Apparently it was supposed to be bad? I don't know about that (and am most certainly not a movie critic) but I quite thoroughly enjoyed it. That's all! Have a lovely Sunday all :)
