It's a whopping 34 degrees Celsius with the humidity here in Ottawa today...luckily I work in an air-conditioned office, but LB works from home and we have nothing more than a humble fan. I worry that he and Maddy are cooking in there.
Hot weather calls for careful dressing, especially when balanced against the a/c. Today I chose a tropical wool black sheath dress from Banana Republic (super deal, couldn't resist!), a big multi-strand beaded choker, and black and white peep toes (the kays, from Nine West). I also opted to wear my mom's gold wedding band instead of my white gold engagement/band combo. It's very 70s and retro, and just feels like summer, whereas mine is more formal and cooler (in tones, as my mom's just as cool as me, if not cooler!)
Top the whole thing off with a pair of giant shades, my fabulous black and white striped kate spade hat, and my kate spade coal tote, and you've got one little lady who's looking good and feeling relatively comfortable! Tonight, we're headed to my parents for a BBQ and swimming in the neighbours' pool with ice cream for dessert...think cool thoughts, folks!It's just such a super summer bag - as usual, well done kate!
