i have one problem with a southern summer, and it's this: i can't wear layers like i want because it's too hot and humid! honestly, if i'm not wearing layers i feel kind of naked, so i try to find the lightest weight clothes i can. sometimes though, i'm still not so sure about the outcome...
tank: vintage, thrifted // dress: vintage, thrifted // necklace: vintage, thrifted // sandals: aldo
i love loose-fitting tanks, but it can be difficult finding them small enough to fit me, so i was beyond ecstatic when i found this one! it's sheer, it's small, and it's so lightweight i don't know i'm wearing it - the definition of the perfect tank.
also, after i posted my last moody rant, i felt really bad and almost deleted it, because i don't want to be known as a negative and angry person. but, because i personally don't like blogs whose authors never have a bad day, and argument, bad hair, or pms, i felt like it was okay to be upset for a day. i have good news: our house aired out sunday night and through the day on monday so we couldn't smell the skunk anymore, and kona was bathed enough so that, while i can still smell the bitterness if i put my nose to him, i can it beside him and rub him without dying or smelling like skunk myself!
last, if you are in or around the lynchburg, va area, i wanted to invite you to join me and a few hundred others for the 2nd annual rachael's paws & purrs 5k & 10k benefit run! chris and i ran in the first one and had so much fun, and i'll be there again this year (he may or may not thanks to a bad knee). if you didn't read my blog back in april of 2011, i blogged about rachael (the run's namesake, and chris' second cousin) and her husband aaron being killed in an apartment fire. i still think about them and the tragedy on a near-daily basis, but am happy that, because of so many people and their generosity, rachael's legacy and love for animals lives on. to find out more about the race, the fund, and rachael, visit their site! and let me know if you're planning to race on september 22!
