The calendar says it’s tuesday, but because I had yesterday off for MLK, it sure feels like a Monday. I left my phone at home on the charger, was running 30 minutes late, and the building had a false fire alarm within the first 30 minutes. That last one is a biggie, since the alarm in this building seems purposely designed to set off a migraine.
Still, how bad can the day be when it is blue skies, sunny, and predicted to hit 80 today! Last week was record cold, this week is record heat. Gotta love winter in Arizona!
Today’s outfit is a celebration of the fake spring we’re having right now.
- Black knit jeans (Coldwater Creek)
- Black polka dot top (Kiyonna)
- Red “tank” (Halftee)
- Black shoes (Naot Retro)
- Heart silver bracelet (Tiffany)
- Steampunk Necklace (Susan Holt – Artist, although this piece is one-of-a-kind)
- Deborah Dot Little Nadine Bag (Kate Spade, only available in brown now)
I also wanted to do a quick REVIEW of HALFTEE.COM!
The red “tank” is new, and not actually a tank. I recently came across a company called Halftee.com; they carry exactly what it says; half tee shirts. They stop just under the band to your bra and give coverage without adding a lot of heat OR uncomfortable clips. What I really like, however, is that this brand also has short and half sleeve versions for wearing with other styles of top, and a wide selection of colors (red, pink, brown, grey, taupe, etc, as well as black and white). Their prices are reasonable and the tops are comfortable. You can also reverse the top in order to get a slightly higher neckline if you want. To me these are a MUST; it is far too hot to add more layers much of the year, but many tops are just too low cut to be professional. These solve that problem.
As far as the rest of the outfit, the necklace was a christmas gift from my artist friend, you have all heard of my love for this purse, and the shoes are new as well, first worn last week and praised for their excellent support and cute shape. I would be fibbing if I didn’t admit that these are some of my current favorite wardrobe pieces.
As always, everything was purchased with my own money. This blog isn’t big enough to get free stuff.
