Checks And Balances

Hi there! It's a typical hot, sticky summer here on the southern coast, and all I want to wear is the easiest, lightest clothing possible. That's why a simple tank dress, like this striped fit-and-flare version, is invaluable. 

I wanted to do a girlie school boy theme, so I got the oxford shoes, men's button-up, the watch, and the backpack... But the pearls let you know she's a lady.

I've been looking around at bucket bags and backpacks, and I was lucky enough to score this beauty at a thrift store for less than $10! 

I wrapped this men's shirt around my waist to keep my butt covered (it's super short!) and also to add another print and layer.

The great thing about the shape of this dress is that it allows you to wear a minimizing bra without giving up your heavy-duty secret. 

I'm really digging my Frye shoes, but they're still at the stage of needing to wear them with socks (or you'll get your skin promptly rubbed off). I figured I would take the opportunity to sport a different kind of stripe--zebra!

And now is the time on Glad Racks when we dance! </Sprockets>

Keep cool, chickadees!
