I love it when it's hot! Unfortunately, today is it for a while :(
So, taking full advantage of the unseasonably warm temps, I'm sporting (for the second time this week) my new bright orange maxi dress. I'm LOVIN' it! Ridiculously comfy and I scooped it up for $13 at Ross, along with these super-snazzy sandals for $12. It's layered over a cami from BMoss (clearance $3) and set off with the biggest bandanna known to man (seriously, this thing is at least 4' x 4'). Added some metallic touches with Old Navy hoops earring (clearance $3) and a studded bracelet (Hot Topic, clearance $2).
I'm in love with gladiator sandals, but am not crazy about them on me - too many horizontal lines chopping up my already short legs. These are the love child of gladiators and my favorite thong design - perfect! And at that price?!
On a different note entirely, I've been listening to The Velvet Underground as my first "assignment" in my music education experiment. I must admit that in the past, I would impersonate the VU by making horrible screeching noises, because all I heard was feedback and total dischord. For that reason alone, this album seemed like a good place to start. Not to mention, we saw Adventureland this weekend (awesome movie!) and they're obsessed with Lou Reed - it was a sign.
So far, I'm loving it. Pale Blue Eyes is clearly an amazing song and I quickly warmed up to What Goes On and Beginning to See the Light. It's much more mellow than I anticipated, though there are still some moments of calamity. Check it out and let me know what you think!
