Annebeth 's Thoughts:

Another ballet inspired outfit/pose for you guys! This romper was actually a jumpsuit that got its legs cut off (by me) and its crotch raised as it was one of those harem things, and now it is one of my favorite warm weather pieces. It fits quite loosely around the body, even the waistband isn’t tight or sweaty, and the fabric is incredibly light and thin: perfect for the scorching heat. The aforementioned SCORCHIO! was also the reason I put my hair up. Some bobby pins and a headband et voila, no more sweaty hair! And perfect for my ballerina look. I found this headband with the flower while cleaning up. I had forgotten all about it and I’m glad it’s back because I love how it is both kind of a statement piece, and quite basic. Having almost black hair gives you the opportunity to have black hair accessories blend into your own hair, and while that is annoying sometimes, it does make “special” pieces more casual and wearable.
These espadrilles are seriously one of the best buys of the summer if you ask me. Very comfy and still cute and fashionable! I’m not the biggest fan of those basic flats, I feel like they often look a bit goody-two shoe. The straps and the rope sole on espadrilles keep it from being too sweet and too summer school, if you catch my drift.

I was in the paper yesterday! I don’t remember if I told you guys, but when I went sales shopping 12 days ago, I bought this straw hat with a parrot print, and the minute I set foot out of the store with the hat on my noggin, a guy with a huge camera approached me and asked if he could take my picture for some piece one of our national newspapers was doing on summertrends. One of the trends was the straw hat, and he thought mine was cute. Anastasia_Azuline alerted me on my picture when it was finally featured in the newspaper and I haven’t seen it yet myself, but it is quite fun and exciting! So exciting that I had a dream this night about Kate Moss telling an interviewer she thought I was a very stylish girl, hahaha! I’m not even that huge a fan of Kate Moss, but nonetheless it was AWESOME

And it might be getting cheesy, but I really want to thank you guys again for comments and fans and friend requests, you rock!

Ok, that’s it for today. More, as always, at my blog! THE STYLING DUTCHMAN

I force myself to do SOMETHING :D it would just depress me to walk around in a tanktop and shorts every day. I need to dress up to be happy! :D but some coolness would be nice.

I love those shoes and the romper! Just curious, if it's really that hot there, then why are you wearing black? Black items are great at absorbing heat so wouldn't that just make you feel hotter?
Bubbly1202
Bubbly1202 on July 12
Oh okay. Thanks for the explanation. Was just wondering anyways. :)
Annebeth
Annebeth on July 12
Dark colors only absorb the heat if you actually get in the sunshine. Trust me, with temperatures as high as those around here, I'm staying in the shade :D when you stay in the shade, it's mostly the weight of the fabric and the airy-ness of the design that make the difference. thanks!
