OOTRT : July 5

HERE IT IS. THE TRAITOROUS TOP WHAT GAVE ME HEAT RASH / SUN TRAUMA :

I mean, it IS a cute top. It’s Petit Pois and I found it at one of the Old Lady Shoppes downtown, where they have stuff like those big boxy-cut linen tunic shirts and then a selection of what I categorize as Artistic MidLife Crisis Clothes, aka Desigual and … that brand that’s similarly VERY VERY BUSY with prints and embellishments whose name I can’t remember right now. Anywaaaaaay … I don’t care what their target demo is, I dig a lot of Petit Pois’ weird colorful shit, and this obnoxious primary-color floral reminded me strongly of shit I wore in the 80s so I had to get it. But of course, now I know not to wear this bastard for a longish walk in glaring summer-noon sun. :(

The mini is Prana and I LOVE it bc it’s stretchy annnnnd it has great pocketses. (Prana makes some good shit, which you can find on their own site, on Amazon, sometimes Zappos, and outdoorsy places like REI.) Shoes are Marni, and of course I found them on Yoox and of course they’re not available anymore.

That’s one of my fave shoe brands to watch, tho, for their mix of “oh that’s odd/cute yet wearable!” and “WHAT THE DAMN SHIT IS THAT.”

Srsly, I’m so mad at that shirt. Or mad at myself for not realizing blazing July sun + sheer mesh = massive sun damage and a heat rash. Sigh.

WHAT’RE YOU WEARIN’? Tellllll meeeeeeeee. <3
