Wearing: ivory tassel earrings / Chanel sunglasses / YSL lipstick / beige tee shirt / ivory lace kimono (currently on back order, also love this one under $20)/ rose gold cuff / Chanel summer nail polish /  watch / Cult Gaia handbag / scarf tied to bag c/o Banana Republic (sold out, also love this one) / distressed boyfriend jeans / Christian Louboutin espadrilles (old, similar pair under $100) / fragrance

The weather is getting crazy hot! We literally went from 50’s last week, to 90’s this week. I feel like I am melting away! That being said, I am not really sure what possessed me to wear jeans on a scorching hot day, but somehow I survived.

I love wearing jeans and a tee shirt on casual days when something like hot weather makes me want to crawl up on the sofa with a bowl of popcorn, and binge-watch reality TV. These photos were taken on one of those days. Instead of being able to snuggle on the sofa, I had to work, take my daughter to home-school chess class, run some errands, order my son’s birthday cake, and the list goes on! This meant I could not just throw on something comfortable, and hide at home; I had to look presentable. Ho-hum

Since jeans and a tee-shirt were the mood I was in on this fine, sweltering hot day, I decided to elevate my comfortable, casual look with my go-to espadrilles, and this kimono. Luckily the holes in my jeans created a make-shift air conditioner, and the kimono felt so light and airy, this outfit turned out to be fine in the scorching 92F heat. Shocking!

Despite being wedges, I have to admit, espadrilles are SO comfortable. They have become my go-to comfort shoe on warm days, casual days, or anytime I need to walk a lot, yet look put together in the spring or summer seasons. These wedges do the trick! Although they are old, they are still comfortable, and in great condition. I have a similar pair in black, which is priced under $100. I bought them last year ,and have been wearing them again this season. I linked to the beige version of them above in my outfit details. They are really comfortable for walking, standing, and on sweltering hot days when leather shoes rub feet the wrong way. No blisters from these puppies!

Did you have a season change suddenly where you live? If so, were you ready? I sure wasn’t! haha, I still can’t find my sandals from last year, I know they are stuffed in the back of my closet somewhere!! haha

Thank you for stopping by!
