Three Blind Mice

Hubs: That title has nothing to do with your post
Nina: I know, but get it? Third day of 30x30, 3 blind mice?
Hubs: I get it. There aren't too many songs with number 29 in the title. Just so you know.
* #8--pinky nude H&M tee * #18--grey velvet Elevenses skirt * #29--metallic Jeffrey Campbell laceup booties *
* beige fuzzy hat--H&M * locket necklace--Ann Taylor Loft (before it lost the Ann Taylor) * grey heathered tights--UO *
The heat went on at the museum last week, which means my office is now approximately the temperature of Dante's Inferno. Not that I was there, or anything, but if I had to imagine what it would feel like- hot, itchy and dry- my basement office with no windows would make a good stand in. Rather than try and fight it, today I went with just a plain cotton tee, which I thankfully included in the 30x30 lineup. Apparently not planning works out really well.
While taking these pictures, a little girl and her grandmother decided to park down on the bench next to me. I moved away, but as I walked away from the park saw the little girl posing for her grandmother with her hands on her hips. Adorable and embarrassing, all at the same time.
And can I say again (but for the first time this season) how much I love these booties? Even the high school girls that are still sitting outside my apartment at 8:30 PM (yup, I can hear you. Loud and clear.) told me that they were hot. I am now slightly less annoyed at being woken up by their conversations about hair and boys every morning.

Those boots are completely amazing! Jeffrey Campbell... should have known. :) I don't think there is a single pair of JC's I don't love!

This skirt is great! I love big buttons.

What a funny conversation. I love your outfit. The weather has been weirdly warm here, so dressing has been weird for me, also. I chose mostly warm weather items.. so good job on at least having something suitable to wear in warmer conditions. haha.
