Meet Me at Sunset

It’s moments like these that I truly love what I do on the blog. When the light is just right, your face is finally clear, your hair is less of a mess than usual, and your lipgloss is just the right shade of sheer. Things that feel like the stars are aligned for just one moment–the best outfit shoot ever.

Now, if the legs were a smidge (or foot) longer, I’d probably promise my firstborn to you in return.

But I digress.

Texas is hot and muggy, once more. Out come the breezy silk tops, lightweight shorts, and platform wedges (naturally). I’m a cold-weather girl, so why I live in this city still remains a testament to how much I love the people in my life. Dramatic? Yes. Do I hate hot humid climates enough to make the statement? Also yes.

What’s the temperature like where you live? Is it getting hot and gross yet?

If not…can I come stay with you?

    I love the accessories especially the clutch and wrist wear. A very cute and comfy chic outfit

    Greetings from the 100 degree temps of New Orleans. Such a casual, cool look. And those sandals make the exclamation point!

    Love the outfit! I live in Florida and it is already hot and humid here. I have a feeling this summer is going to be really gross.

    I love this outfit!! 🙂

    Hi, Kristina!

    Nice look. It's also really hot in Baku about 33 degrees and it's just a start of the summer. These days I also wish to escape somewhere a bit cooler or not have to work and lay on the beach all day. Second is actually better!!! 🙂

    I odn't like the shoes, but the glasses and the shirt fit you just perfectly. And the light is very professional!

    I Love your outfits. photos are amazing

  8. 06.06.2011 / 1:45 am

    Very nice top. It is one of the most-loved item for summer in my opinion

  9. 06.06.2011 / 1:47 am

    The good shots are making me soo happy so being a blogger brings you more chances to be happier everyday (so as very bad shots – so funny sometimes). I love your outfit! It's so chic and simple. Love your gorgeous shorts and bag.

  10. 06.06.2011 / 2:04 am

    The light in these is VERY beautiful. You should be very happy with the wa they turned out. I am a beginning blogger and I am having trouble figuring out the photography bit. By the way, I wonder if you might do a post about what types and brands of technology( ie, computer equipment) that you use. I am on the way to upgrade from hammer and chisel and would appreciate the direction.

  11. 06.06.2011 / 3:05 am

    Kristina, you look fabulous!! I can just see how light and airy that top is in hot, humid weather! Great choice! And I'm totally coveting those espadrilles!! WOW!!!




  12. 06.06.2011 / 4:29 am

    You look great Kristina! The photos are amazing just the way they are…. And your shoes are to die for!

    Love these pictures – you look absolutely beautiful! And that outfit is totally me…oh, and you can come visit NY anytime you want – it's not muggy here yet!! 🙂 Happy Monday!

  14. 06.06.2011 / 6:48 am

    You look gorgeous with this sunset lighting! It is quite hot and muggy here as well, although I must say that over the past few days it's been more dry and hovering around 75 degrees which is nice! You can come enjoy the breeze over here if you'd like 😉

    Loving those wedges, I too am a wedge girl all day… and nite. I live in Wisconsin and the summer has been sloow comming, it's finally made a small apperance but in a very big way. It was 91 degres yesterday and and today it's thunderstorming. So idk if you'd wanna trade places with me but I'd give a go in Texas.

  16. 06.06.2011 / 7:41 am

    nice pics. this the perfect look i wanted for summer.

  17. 06.06.2011 / 8:04 am

    we have the 90's til wednesday and the 60's at the end of the week… i hate our weather. these pics are so pretty 🙂 are you done with your surgery rotation, or at the end of this month?

  18. 06.06.2011 / 8:16 am

    love your look here! that shade of pinkish purple looks great on you!

    and i LOVED the video from the previous post! where in texas do you live? i miss it so much!!


  19. 06.06.2011 / 8:23 am

    It's funny how the people in warm climates complain about the warmth and people in cool climates complain about coldness 😀 I live in Germany, and this has been one of the nicest springs I have ever seen. It has been summery all over, and it's not even summer yet! It rarely gets humid here though, so there you go 🙂

  20. 06.06.2011 / 8:35 am

    OoOoOo….definitely a GREAT light day. i LOVE when that happens. you look so pretty in pink!

  21. 06.06.2011 / 8:39 am

    Wait, I'm not the only Texan who hates the heat? I relocated down here for work, but the Northern girl will never leave me–give me cold to layer up an outfit and I'm so much happier! At least I know I'm not alone–my friends down here think I'm crazy!

  22. 06.06.2011 / 8:53 am

    It' s not getting hot and gross but it surly will get my skin burning 🙁 Love the clutch and the necklace!

  23. 06.06.2011 / 9:02 am

    It is starting to get hot and humid here in KC! The really sad part is that this is just the beginning – this will feel like spring come July and August. And I can't comment without mentioning the bugs. The greatest thing about summer is when the sun starts to set and the weather cools off a bit (as close to California weather as we can get) and we all head outdoors for late BBQ or parties and WHAM! Mosquito bites out the whazoo, lol! Weather = love/hate relationship all around 🙂

  24. 06.06.2011 / 9:06 am

    Bagh! I know what you mean. I'm in Florida. ba hum bug. I wish it were 65 – 72 tops, all year round. Oh well.

    I've been looking for a pink silk blouse for a while! I'll have to check out Ann Taylor! You look marvelous. LOVE the wedges!

  25. 06.06.2011 / 9:24 am

    Great outfit! i love the long necklaces… Stopping by from bloglovin.

  26. 06.06.2011 / 9:47 am

    I'm loving those wedges!
    Here in LA it's still pretty mild. It's in the low 70's…I am ready for the beach so I hope it warms up soon!

  27. 06.06.2011 / 9:51 am

    You look great in this casual look! I love the blouse on you. I am the opposite of you–I love the hot weather! Bring it on! Of course, I live in Colorado which is really dry. That may or may not have something to do with it . . .

  28. 06.06.2011 / 10:30 am

    If you need a few inches on your legs then I must need a few feet. Hold on to that perfect day feeling for a while and hopefully the next one will come soon. Love the color of that shirt on you.

    Love your accessorizing of the simple shirt and shorts. You look great. You've got perfect shapely legs (calves) My legs are too thin. Not right at all. Cute.

  31. 06.06.2011 / 11:03 am

    Found your blog while randomly G0ogling for blog tips. You've a very beautiful blog. Am following you now. Can't wait to come back for more.

    Love your shirt here. The colour is so pretty!

  32. 06.06.2011 / 11:17 am

    Absolutely LOVELY. This is one of my favorite outfit shoots I've seen in a long time – the light and the feel of your outfit are just perrrfect together. Beautifully done.

    Chic outfit, amazing photos, and yes perfect lighting. I have yet to have that luck but I am a hot weather girl living in cold vill if you wanna change, ha ha.


  34. 06.06.2011 / 1:12 pm

    The light in these photos is just gorgeous, you're right! Best outfit post ever! I love that silk top you have! The weather here in Hawaii has been really wet and rainy and of course now that the weekend is over and I have to return to work indoors, the weather couldn't be more beautiful

  35. 06.06.2011 / 3:39 pm

    LOVE that top! And yes, sheer tops, comfortable shorts, and wedges are the perfect outfit for hot, summer, muggy days! Houston has been so gross lately especially with the heat and the measly attempts of rain in the forecast.

    Hope you had a fabulous weekend, hon!

  36. 06.06.2011 / 3:45 pm

    I absolutely adore your blog. I live in Atlanta and I think we might be the hottest place in the country right now. Hopefully it cools off soon.

  37. 06.06.2011 / 5:38 pm

    Texas is getting quite gross. I have begun to LIVE in sundresses. YOU however, look compleatly unaffected and adorable!!

  38. 06.06.2011 / 5:44 pm

    Very pretty. I think the neutral wedges add to the overall length and are perfect as well!
