The Bare Minimum


So, if all goes according to plan and blogger listens to me, by the time this post is up I should be on my way to Cape Cod! Zak's family decided to take a spontaneous overnight trip to Cape Cod and asked me to come along! I love Cape Cod, and I've been going with Zak's family for the past few years, so I'll never refuse a trip if I can help it. We'll just be staying one night, so I should have a post up Saturday night. I'm kind of looking forward to a little relief from the heat (seventies instead of almost one hundred!) so that should be good :)

Anyway, this is what I wore yesterday. Boy, was it hot. I think I heard the weatherman discussing something along the lines of "record breaking temperatures." So, the world is lucky I even got dressed at all yesterday. I originally was just wearing this skirt and blouse, but I just felt like something was missing. So, I thought to myself, "What Can I add to this outfit without making myself melt even more than I already am?" A vest! I think things came together fairly nicely, considering my lack of desire to wear anything more than a swimsuit.

  5. I'm jealous! You get to take spontaneous trips to places like Cape Cod. I love traveling (road trips mostly) but I don't get to do them very often at all. As soon as I get my license I am for sure going to take day trips to some places I've had my eye on.
    Well I hope you had a great time!

  6. Cute! I hope you have a lovely time :D This is such a lovely outfit. I love that you were able to work in a tiny bit of layering despite the crazy heat. It's still so cloudy and drizzly where I am, so I'm a tiny bit jealous. Though I guess I wouldn't be too happy if it were scorching.

    I want to steeeaaal your skirt, by the way.
