The hottest day in St. Louis since 2007? Heat index of 114 F. Feels like it. This is what I wore yesterday to work (7/22) as I walked for an hour outside with a backpack pressed against my back and my shirt getting a nice long soaking of sweat. It was an adventure trying to find my way through my own campus that I've been treading for the past 3+ years with the ceaseless construction blocking any pedestrian route possible. AN HOUR to deposit my check so that I can feed myself (and buy pretty things). 

Blue theme, swapped out my favourite black flats for these Alonai slingbacks after work. Wearing cool colours is not an effective way to cool down, trust me. Double asymmetry cancels out the imbalance, doesn't it? Haha my skirt is longer on the side that my hair is longer - mind twister. A hint of creativity as I just used the tie string attached to my chambray top as a belt.

Do you ever stop when you're walking somewhere because you realized that this a perfect Kodak moment? Today, walking towards our big castle-looking Brookings Hall, I wanted to snap a postcard-worthy photo of that scene. Another - after lunch, walking between buildings at the medical school campus in a grove of green ginkgo trees. This is why I think a pretty SLR bag is in order - I've been contemplating Cheeky Lime's for $98. Aren't they cute? However, I can't decide which colour and they said they're releasing Blue, Purple, and Mustard in the fall. There's another quilted one by THEIT called thebossi that is PERFECT but of course it's sold out and more expensive [update: pre-order available and giveaway on FB here]. A cute bag that protects my camera and carries other things like any other purse - added to the want-list of an obsessed blogger.
 
FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY. A night of overheating and finger mustaches. Goes along with my most recent inexplicable obsession: cartoon mustaches. Shout to my new friend Don, who gave me this OK Go logo bottle opener. LEGIT. Arby. Sauce. (So sad that there are no Arby's near me in STL blahhh)

I love your shoes and your jewelry! I am loving the red camera bag, but if I had the money, I'd definitely wait for the mustard one! :)

I like the asymmetrical skirt Angie! The pumps look great on you too. I'm really loving the Cheeky Lime camera bags as well - it's hard to choose a favorite between both colors, but the red one really catches my eye! :)
