#FirstWorldProbz: I miss my winter wardrobe

(Disclaimer: I love hot weather more than anything in the world and am not ready for it to drop below 80 ever.)  
Anyone else have this problem with their wardrobes? Yes, I love summer dresses as much as the next girl, but oh man do I miss my blouses and jewelry from the winter.  (Do statement necklaces make anyone else sweat? No? Okay, I guess I'm strange.)  Well known fact, it's a million degrees all the time in Charleston, but it's been 3+ months since I went out of the house in anything but a sun dress or golf clothes.  So finally, I went for it; I took a favorite shirt, rolled up the sleeves and traded the jeans for a really cute pair of Mossimo lace shorts from Target (on sale for $8 - woo!).  It was surprisingly comfortable and the flowy material wasn't very hot at all.

Thanks to Mike for these photos as we strolled around the peninsula the weekend before last.  Stops at Callie's Hot Little Biscuit, the Farmer's Market (for King of Pops and fresh pasta), and the waterfront are always musts!

Love your cute little outfit! Those shorts are adorable! And I agree, I miss my fall/winter clothes too. It was 96 here yesterday. Blah.

Love your outfit! But I'm with you. I'm so ready to bust out things like corduroy pants, puffer vests, and scarves... which will last all of two weeks before I'm ready to have my shorts and sundresses back!

Cuuuuute! Miss Fashionista of Charleston. I did the same thing this past week in Houston. Got out a chambray, rolled up the sleeves, put on a fun necklace, and pretended like it wasn't in the high nineties.

Love those shorts! I managed to wear jeans yesterday, but it was still pretty toasty.

xo, Carly - soak and simmer

LOVING those shorts! And I agree with you, I don't like it when the temps drop below 80 - my perfect medium is somewhere in the 80's because this upper 90's stuff is too hot! Yay for a fellow CT girl living in the south and loving the heat and no more harsh winters. I'm excited for some other clothes than my sundresses too, but once I switch I end up missing my dresses lol :-P

YAY for my favorite shorts ;) I am so, so ready for cooler weather. I'm with you on missing winter clothes, and especially boots!

Pink and Green Mom said...

$8 shorts?! Yes!! As for the hot weather, you are crazy :) I can't wait to play tennis when it is 70 degrees or less! 95 at night is too hot for me.

Julie said...

I tried something like this while we were honeymooning, and I basically died in the heat. As much as I love summer, I can't wait to bust out my fall wardrobe again!
