the heat is on.

those who have followed know that i'm always praying for a cold day. today was no exception, and i was excited when i woke up with frozen fingers and toes. i layered up and headed out the door. my excitement quickly faded as i watched the temperature (gauge) rise. thought it would be fun to actually see how much the temperature changed throughout the day. i know many of you are experiencing some fierce conditions, of which i probably wouldn't survive, but, really, this is freezing for us. the temperatures were taken from my car, so they aren't completely accurate, but you get the picture. another striped dress here. love the padded shoulder detail.

8:00 am, freezing. doesn't get too much colder than this. was wearing this when i left the house.
 8:08am
8:33am
8:44am, warm. at work knowing i'll be miserable. time to crank up the ac.
2:45pm, hot. ditched the sweater. stockings next.
hair up, stockings off.
(dress, 84/5; sweater, shae; boots, chinese laundry)

  7. What a fun post!
    I'm in love with each element of this outfit... the dress, the sweater, the polka dots, the hint of sock beneath that bootie. Brilliantly styled! You look fantastic.

    Leaving The House in THIS?!?

  13. "...and i was excited when i woke up with frozen fingers and toes." WHAAT, i don't know where you live but does it have a little something special in the water because who actually enjoys being freezing cold?! i'm currently sleeping in a sleeping bag under my duvet because it's so cold at night...
    However, despite your weird enjoyment of cold (!) i really like your outfit, especially the cardigan.

  15. haha- i enjoyed your whole ode to the cooler weather- i sympathize about the temperature- it's just slightly colder here in Rome, but we're all still bundled up as if it were like, 25º (meanwhile in other places, it really IS 25º)hahaha :P i love your outfit- that dress is so adorable with the black and white stripes! and it looks great with your leopard bag!!
