Sequined ikat

Having air conditioning at home and air conditioning at work gave me the false sense that I could actually wear jeans.
No.
It was far too hot and humid for something crazy like that.
But this color combo, and my new sequined ikat top, I adore.

Adding to your ikat print collection, I see. ;) But they look so good on you, I can't see why you wouldn't! And especially with the yellow belt and mint jeans. So very colorful you are!

Yeah, it is still too humid for jeans. I take a summer class and our building is freezing, but then I'm instantly hit with humidity once I walk outside. Just can't win. NO VICTORIES.

This is a fantastic color combination. And I have decided that I probably won't be wearing jeans until October...

Sequins AND ikat?! I want this top so badly now. And you still looked super cute even though you were too hot :)

I have to say, air conditioning in offices is usually pretty ridiculous in the summer. At my college in California, and at my old job here in Portland, the air conditioning would be so bad that I'd have to dress for winter in 90-degree weather, just so I'd be warm enough inside.

Courtney Erin said...

OMG, I adore that top! And it looks amazing paired with the mint jeans, even if it turned out to be a little too warm of an outfit.

Girl you be crazy! Jeans are a no no this time of year. Oh well you live and learn. But you do look cute even though you are probably sweating bullets in these shots. I know I would have been.

Shey said...

I also like the color combination, how do you keep your hair from getting all frizzed even in high humidity?

Nic said...

I like the sequins. I normally wear jeans a lot, but it has been too hot for them lately!

rlutz said...

It is so freezing inside with the air that I had on pants too today and was dying when I stepped outside! That top is fantastic!!

Gracey at Fashion for Giants said...

Sequins and ikat might just be a match made in heaven. Love your sandals too!

Frannie Pantz said...

Girl I feel ya. I wore a blazer today thinking the same thing. Foolish decision on my part. Love your sparkly Ikat tank though!

Hahahaha I totally know what you're talking about. Sometimes I think I can wear tights in Panama's hot weather (and sometimes it actually IS bearable) and then BAM: hottest day ever!!! Hsahahahah. I DO love your jeans though. The colors of this outfit are just divine.

Ikat AND sequins! Ah-mah-zing! Given that I am a major proponent of sequins for day, this makes me so happy. Add to that mint jeans and you have ticked all my Summer 12 loves! You look gorgeous x

christine said...

I commend you for being brave by wearing jeans during the heat wave. Still, it looks cute!!

CessOviedo said...

Cute combo! Totally cheerful and sweet, love the sequins!

There you have it... the story of my life!
I think the colors look spectacular together :)

JC Leonids said...

I know what you mean about A/C... my office is always freezing but when I step outside, the 110 degree heat is all the more unbearable!

Anyway, that sequin top is gorgeous & I love the colors you paired it with!

OMG, that's like... brave, wearing jeans this week. Since I don't have central air, I was not deluded. In fact, the air conditioner at work barely works. It's been 85 degrees in the office. Wear this shirt more often!! I love the sequins.

geetabix said...

Love everything about that tank! The fit, the colour, goes so well with the jeans!

georgescastle said...

You look stunning! That's a really gorgeous shirt, I love it! You always look great in such vibrant colours, I'm jealous : ).

Mint skinny jeans are on my list - when I remove my self-imposed shopping ban.

I love this outfit. It's a color and texture treat.
