WIWW 8/29

It was annoyingly chilly, like 45 degrees, yesterday morning when I took this picture.  I was all set to wear boots with this skirt (like last week), but I know my sandal-wearin' days are numbered.  It was a painfully cold decision.
At least I had pockets to keep my hands warm.

Skirt and shirt: Old Navy //  Sweater: Macy's //  Sandals:  Target

Dress:  Banana Republic Outlet //  Belt:  Target  //  Sandals:  Great Northwest (some Alaska company, but they are comfy!)
I find it odd that I had a cold on Monday, yet had perhaps the best hair day of my life.  What you see above is 4:30pm on a Monday.  No brushing, wind-blown from recess, etc.  Oh, and no product.  I conditioned it in the morning, blow-dried it, and pulled the front back with two bobby pins.

I need more days like that in my life.

And I realize that picture makes it look like I live in a sunny, mild climate.

I'm very suspicious of this state called "Alaska".  It, like, knows when I want to share pictures with you and decides to bring out the sun for 4 to 9 minutes at a time.  I swear, it started snowing right after I took this picture.

I'm kidding.

  1. gahhh I want that second outfit, so cute. (both cute, obviously though). I feel you on the numbered sandal days. I hate finding socks in the morning, so the longer i can go without wearing them, the better

  2. your hair does look amazing! mine is always in a messy ball by the end of the day. LOVE that belt with the dress - I have a very similar dress!

  3. Did it really snow!! Love the blue dress!

  4. Way cute! I'm laughing about the sandals...the price we pay for looking good ;)
    Can't wait to pull out my boots! It's the only thing I like about cool weather.

  5. I'm loving that dress! That is how WA was this morning too...verrrry deceiving!

  6. You know what's sad? I don't even own a single pair of flat sandals (besides a couple pairs of flip flops) because I can't bring myself to spend money on them, knowing I'll only get to wear them twice a year.

    ILOVEALASKA. (lie)

  7. Love your second outfit! Your hair looks great too. My only good hair days end up when there is absolutely no humidity, otherwise it is a frizz ball, ha ha! Heather

  8. That blue Banana Republic dress is really pretty. Thank you for joining our hop!

  10. 45 degrees? Dude, I would have been wearing freakin' snow gear. Yeah, I know, I'm a total wimp when it comes to the cold.

    I'm definitely diggin the blue dress with green belt, totally cute.

  11. I want your wardrobe. And HOLY COW I know it's Alaska but it's also August. 45 degrees?!?! I know I will deal with whatever comes our way, but I have my fingers crossed super tight we are never sent to Alaska. haha I will go on a cruise for a week, it look breathtakingly beautiful. But, wow. 45 degrees. And, that's sandal weather.
