Also my lifesaver this summer are the spandex bike shorts I got at Target...I feel much more carefree in short dresses! ;)
It was hotter than Africa today, hence the minimalism. I hid in the AC all day and watched Harry Potter. I think I am Ron Weasley.
A Savers store just opened up near me recently, and I think I may like it better than my usual thrift shops! It's brand new, so everything hasn't been picked over a million times, and it's so organized and neat. And their dressing rooms aren't as scary either! Now when I'm trying on things, I feel like I'm in Target rather than a sketchy, dusty little box with a beat up chair from the 70s and no hooks to hang things on. Yay! I spent $26 and got a book (Girl, Interrupted by Susannah Kaysen), a pair of wacky red pumps, this dress and belt, two other shirts, and a wool beret. I'd say a very successful trip. :) I read in a magazine that denim dresses are apparently the 'it' thing for summer, so when I saw this I threw it in my basket and lo and behold; it was cute and flattering! (Denim trend here and here.)
PS: I should just rename this blog The Barefoot Blog-tessa at the rate I'm going.
