stripes & dots

With this massive heat wave here in Providence, there’s little else to do besides quickly transfer from one air conditioned enclosure to another.  See also: spend long periods of time in a pool and eat frozen yogurt.

As a survival technique, I’ve been sporting lots of easy sundresses, including the neon-stripey new Ace & Jig number I got on sale at Anthropologie the other day.  Love!  Also accompanying me are a few new first knuckle rings from whoelsebut? Catbird.  Voila!  Shiny!

Exciting news to come tomorrow…suspense…stay tuned.

the dog days


If only I could wake up to that Maine sunrise every day!  But alas, I’m back in Providence, and surely these are the dog days of summer.  With the second big heat wave of the month unmistakably upon us, my daily prerogative is making it to 11 pm without melting.  Which means my cute printed “Paris Pants” (last worn here) will be forced to mope on the shelf for a little bit longer.  This morning’s humidity called for messy milkmaid braids pinned up on top of my head and an easy cotton dress thin enough to let the lack of breeze through.  When silly hairstyles and lightweight clothes fail, staying in air conditioning is always a savvy heat-beating technique. ;)  Stay cool, ladies and gents.
