day and night (friday)

Friday morning was hot. Hot and humid and the air felt as though it weighed about 300 pounds and at least in the kitchen there is a fan to lighten the load. I was feeling exhausted and lazy about getting dressed and never thought to wear brown with this dress until the pieces were piled on my chair together looking inviting. Usually this dress gets dolled up with purple or red and is made to look extra girly with bows or ribbons. Instead I made it a little more outdoorsy with a big brown leather belt and a wood bead necklace.
F21 dress, old Gap belt, Steve Madden sandals, wood bead necklace from PacSun when I worked there in high school
I was on the floor looking for a salsa recipe for the bbq at my house that night, and thought it would make a nice picture. I do love my kitchen, and the floor was nice and cool.The above picture was the point where I realized I was uncomfortable with my hair. It ended up like this (and an added silly face just for you).Later on I had some friends over for drinks and grilled food. By the time I thought it would be a good idea take my camera out almost everyone had gone home and I had enough drinks in my system to be completely ridiculous. (Because after 4 drinks its the perfect time to take an outfit picture...)
