Or: Nina Needs a New Fedora. I mean, I wear this at least twice a week. I've been on the lookout for a slightly modified version- straw colored, but slightly less in-your-face, but nothing compares 2 u, parrot fedora.

This very relaxed outfit was a Friday attempt at breezy clothing for yet another balmy day. My sister and I went to lunch, and after were supposed to go to the beach, until we discovered that my idea of beach fun involves swimming and hers tanning. Oops. We watched a terrible movie instead-- Orphan. Nothing like creepy pseudochildren to give you nightmares.
Looking back on this outfit now, I rather like how the drapey top and skirt complement eachother. With pieces like these, it is easy to get swallowed up in the loose fabric, but somehow this steers clear of the wrapped-in-sheet look just enough to be ok. I have been wearing the wrap cardigan to death these past few weeks (I am wearing it as I type, in fact.) It is always enlightening to see how clothing can go from an occasional pick to a constant wear given new circumstances, in this case extreme heat. On the list for when I can start purchasing again are a few more summer-weight cardigans.
Coming up this week: Shop updates! I sorted through my closet a bit this week and have weeded out the items in great condition that just don't get worn. Stay tuned for some great deals.
Also in the works: A post about winding down on the year of no clothing purchases. I'll reflect on the past 11 months and my thoughts about reentering buying society.
