In Evening Air

My last post was so long, this one will be short, I promise!

I think I'm one of the few people who actually loves the fact that it's 9 pm and 82 degrees out. I can think of far too many cold dreary summers that make me thankful for this weather. Even with the humidity, even with the intense heavy rains we get every other afternoon which drench everything in minutes and clear up within the hour.  I was a little mad I got caught in it yesterday in my suede sandals, but they'll be okay.

I wanted to finish up my Lucky inspirations so today I wore the 'downtown style' look.

Downtown style

I really love this skirt. It hasn't been out since my style challenge with it, and I think it's had enough off time. I always feel very classy wearing it, and it was one of the first high waisted skirts I ever bought, back when I wasn't actually sure it was something I could pull off with my short torso.

I really like her leopard scarf. It's $25 at HSN. I think I'll keep an eye on it and get it if it goes on sale. It's kind of too hot for that big a scarf right now anyway. Except for at work and in the grocery store, where I am always a popsicle.

I've worn this ring quite a few times, but I don't think I've ever shown a close up. And did I mention how much I adore this lavender polish?? I haven't worn purple nails in probably a decade and I couldn't be more pleased with them now!

This post title is taken from the Future Islands album of that name. It's been raking in the play counts lately.


  1. Love the skirt. It looks great!

  2. great look - I also love seeing your inspiration!

    I was going to ask if you live in Houston because you are describing the weather we are having down here to a tee (well, except you left out the possibility of a hurricane!) :)

  3. Your look is so neat! That skirt looks great on you! I love your poses too!


  4. I really like how you added the orange belt as a pop of color, besides the scarf which is also lovely, and the way that you looped the belt is a great idea. You look lovely, keep these outfits coming i love to see the blogger's versions =D

  5. You look so put together and classy! I love the inspiration (especially the skirt) but I think I like yours better!

  11. I like the warmish nights. I'm glad they're not too cold, but the humidity is what bothers me.. it makes my face so shiny! >__<

    Anyway.. your outfit is much too cute! <3 I love the neutrals and then the red pop from your belt.

  12. Awesome outfit- I've been checking lucky online : ) thanks to you suggestion. And yes there is nothing better than warm summer evenings. For walking at night. late night talks on porches, night car rides to the lake. Gosh I miss New England : )

  13. i love this whole ensemble! :D


  14. Ahh! This outfit is fantastic. This is the first time I've read your blog so it's a wonderful introduction to your personal style.

    (ps - skirt definitely suits you, torso doesn't look short at all!)

  15. The outfit is gorgeous but it's the belt that makes it perfect! An awesome pop of colour, lovely touch! xo

  16. Gorgeous outfit as always! I adore your purple polish :)

    clothed much, a modest fashion blog

  30. i love these inspired looks! it's so much fun seeing your twist on a magazine look. you look so lovely :)

  31. This outfit is simply amazing! I love the way the coffee and the coral work together, in fact, I never knew these two colors can match up so very well:) Now, I really need to try it out for myself

  32. Absolutely lovely outfit! You look amazing!

  33. I like this outfit lots! High-waisted skirts actually hide short torsos... or just torsos in general. I have a long torso and short legs, so the high-waisted skirts make my legs look longer. Double score for the disproportional!

    I hear ya on the work and grocery store temperatures!!!
