High, Dry & Haute

Staying cool is essential in this 110+ degree heat we are experiencing here in the deep South. While at work I like to wear dresses with tights and flats and an accessory or two, at home or on casual dinner dates with [houston] I like to wear outfits like this. Cool enough to get by but covered up enough to pass at our favorite local tapas & wine bar. (We are huge fans of pretty much any Pinot Noir.)

P.S. – I’m loving these tortoiseshell Ray-Ban Wayfarers. I’ve got a pair for you to win coming up later this week. Don’t miss this one!

Thumbs up for the awkward let’s-show-them-my-shoes shot! Gotta love it. Just keepin’ it real, y’all.

  • Of course you wanna show us those shoes! They're awesome!!!! You still wear pantyhose/tights in this heat? I can't do it, I've been going bare legged! Anyway, I love that top, the print is great and makes it interesting, and it looks like a nice breezy cool combination!

  • So nice to know I'm not the only one who favors skirts and dresses with tights in the heat — everyone thinks I'm nuts but it's just more comfortable in the heat I think…and work appropriate.

I love showing my awkward shots too because it just shows that you aren't serious all the time and you know how to have fun with yourself. I'm glad you're like that as well, even if it's come out in just about every other post you write! Hee hee
