July fog

13 Jul

Daily outfit and style tip, wearing blue top, recycled sweaters mini skirt, purple tights, blue suede platform sandals

For starters, let me make it clear that I didn’t use any special effects to blow out the background and sky. The House in the Clouds was enshrouded in fog. Nice, thick, white July fog. I know, it makes no sense to me, either. It’s been cold all week and I’m at a loss as to how to dress.

It just doesn’t seem right to wear a thick sweater in July.

I went running with a light jacket, wool socks and gloves yesterday. I don’t think I wear that much in winter, all I know is that I was cold and being cold was not going to mess with this girl’s exercise. I’m too lazy to postpone it. That’s right: lazy. If I didn’t do it then, I’d have to do it later and I was feeling too lazy to do it later, so, yeah, you get it. Foggy logic. Can you blame a girl?

I’ll take the sunshine back now. ‘k, thnx, bye.

{ blog events: }

Some of you may have noticed my waining participation in blog events as of late, I assure you it’s temporary. I needed to re-focus on what my intention was with The House in the Clouds and I was starting to feel spread a little thin. In the meantime, I want to give a shout out to some of the fun stuff going on at the moment. Participating in the past has provided me with inspiration and has given me the opportunity to make new friends. Check out what’s happening this week:

Everybody Everywear - Each month a new item is chosen. You choose how to wear it and submit your photo on the day of the event. Yellow was this month’s theme.

Full Time Fabulous - Each month a new inspiration theme is chosen. This month’s is the sea.

Feminist Fashion Bloggers - The theme for this month is social class. There are a lot of thought provoking posts in these events.

Fashion Beauty Friend Friday – Twice a month questions are posed relating to blogging, fashion and beauty for you to answer.

This is just a sample of what’s out there. If you’re interested in finding out about even more blog events, just ask me.

{ style tip: }

I really wasn’t sure what to wear given how cold it was, I wasn’t prepared to wear a big sweater and boots. I found the middle ground by wearing summer sandals with tights, a warm yet short skirt, and a mid-weight top. I think of this outfit as a by-product of successful sartorial negotiation.

How you ever been thrown for a loop by unusual weather? What did you do?
