Wednesday Wardrobe

Since I totally admit to being a lazy bum and a prisoner to my house on Monday and Tuesday. I stayed in my lounging clothes most of the time and totally avoided the record temperatures of 110 degrees outside. So for that matter, did not get dressed in my get-ups and had no wardrobe pictures to share. So lame........

Anywhoo today I had no choice, but to expose my son and I to the heat! We had some running around to do. Thank goodness the a/c in my car blows cold. Or else I really think I would die of a heat stroke. I know I sound like a whiny little baby. My poor husband is a Landscape Designer and works in the heat all day long. Even though he is a self proclaimed lizard and says it doesn't bother him. Nor should it bother me as we were both raised in the desert climate.

That I should just deal with it, it's only for 3 months out of the year. You can't beat the Spring, Fall and Winters in Arizona. Also we don't have to worry about floods, earthquakes, tornadoes blah, blah, blah! Yeah I know, but it's so hot my makeup is melting off my face in the middle of the day!

Back to the point as I have rambled on about my petty complaints. Here is what I wore today as I gallivanted around to register for a class, Target, Michael's Craft Store, Hancock Fabric store, and the Farmers Market. I make my poor son take these pictures of me as there is no one else around during the day, plus I am horrible about taking self portraits. You would have half a head or half a body if it was left up to of to me. He has turned out to be quite the little picture taker.

Have a swell Wednesday!

XOXO,

Syd




Red and white polka dot 1940's dress. I found this dress at an estate sale about a year ago. Paired with red Georgia wedges from Rocket Originals. Also after my bangs grew out a little bit. I was finally able to put my hair in Victory Rolls again!!!

My accessories include a red Bakelite cuff bracelet, red Bakelite earrings, red snood and my President Roosevelt campaign pin from the early 1940's.
