OOTD: out of practice.

I've been way slacking on OOTD posts, this I know. Here's the excuse: have you checked the temps out there? I mean, Dallas has had 110 heat indices for about 3 weeks now. At first, I could handle it. Now I'm over it, and frankly, if I can get from my car to an air conditioned building without sweat stains on my clothes it's a success. I wish I were exaggerating but it's the gods-honest-truth. Yuck.

I had this outfit in the archives from before I went to DC. Actually, I wore this dress on our first night there and have yet to wear it for the blog. I bought it originally for my bridal shower last summer and thought it was the perfect thing to wear to something summery and bridal-ey, but the great thing is that it's just plain great to wear anytime. Minus the sweat stains. :)

Dress: Hannah G scalloped tiered dress (Nordstrom)
Belt: F21 bow belt
Jacket: F21 sequin jacket
Shoes: JS Cedary sandals

How are you beating the heat? Hopefully you've been more successful than me.  :)


  1. Cute dress :) and no, I'm not beating the heat... it's awful and I'm over it...

  2. That is a GORGEOUS dress! Perfect for a bridal shower!

    Beat the heat? Is that even possible? Our house has been up to 82 degrees during the day because the AC just can't handle it. It's awful! AND the AC is broken at work too. Ugh.

  3. Such a great dress---it looks fab on you. I feel you with the heat. I have but so uninspired lately--just want something light and airy.

  4. Great dress - and the color is fab on you!

  5. This dress is fantastic, so floaty. I like the unexpected touch of the black patent belt.

  6. Wow, that dress is gorgeous! That color looks so pretty on you!

  7. gorgeous dress! and girl, I know how you feel, it's crazy hot here in Houston and I've given up on silk tops on the super hot days!

  8. I think this is a perfect option for beating the heat, Justine. I've been suffering the same problem and have been trying to think cool to not sweat before getting indoors.
