Kelly Green + Stripes

oh madonna kelly green and gold jewelry cute st. patty's outfit 90s knotted what to wear on a hot summer day

From a similarly windy hot summer day summer (8/16/12), a lightweight unique top and mini skirt (with biker shorts underneath because Marilyn'ing doesn't quite work for the caught-off-guard/elegance-challenged/short skirts) make for an easy, breezy, casual look. This is a would-be St. Patricks' Day outfit if the holiday were worth celebrating after you've hit twenty one: 1) you're still a child at heart and refuse to be pinched 2) you're Irish 3) you like to drink lots of watered down light beer. On scorching breezy days like this, I wish for a beachcruiser to ride around the park in and a pool on my rooftop.

My thighs don't lie - though they've atrophied after a year of sitting in a chair all day, working on that flat butt while hunched over Powerpoint notes, my "Marion Joneses" are still loud and proud. This mini skirt length is too short to hide them even with their A-line shape, but that's okay. Beefcake and SWOLE are the new thigh gap, haven't you heard?

Readers - what do you wear on a hot summer day?

You look great Angie! I love the striped skirt on you. I have to look into getting some biker shorts - too short skirts always make me very paranoid :)

Lily Fang May 30, 2013 at 3:16 PM   said...

Aww, love the fun photos! You look so pretty. The green is the perfect pop of color. And don't kid yourself, your legs look fine! I know what you mean though--I've had to sit a lot the past week to type papers for finals, and I think I can see the effects too haha. It doesn't help that I'm on my two weeks off from running after track season...
As for a hot summer day, I love skirts and flowy tops to keep the crazy Ohio heat away!

Hello Angie,

I'm taking the freedom of leaving you a comment because I'm currently working on a fashion-related dissertation for my MSc. I'm doing a survey about the perception of young women towards today's luxury brands ads, and if you, or any of your lovely reader, could take 5 mins and complete it, it would be of much much help :)
Here the link of my survey:
Thank you very much!
