Feel the Burn

 
  Shirt: Thrifted, $2 // Pants: Urban Outfitters, $28 // Shoes: Thrifted, $1 // Bracelet: Forever 21, $9 // Ring: JCPenney, $7 // Sunglasses: Target, $15

What possessed me to wear black pants during a heat advisory, I can't be certain. I'll blame it on Monday morning grogginess. Though it would be better suited to a cool fall day, I liked this neutral combination punctuated by bold red lips. I'll be sure to stick with decidedly summery selections for the rest of this warm week!

Such a classic look with that red lip and sweet ladylike shirt. Love it, but stay out of the sun.

those sunglasses are the best! Great outfit, love the whole look.

Um, THIS OUFIT IS THE BOMB. As I'm sure you were feeling, black pants in the heat and all. I love everything about this look-the red lips, the romantic top paired with the black skinnies, the red lip and big glasses, the shoes-it's perfect. Definitely a favorite.

Very cute outfit, but I do not know how you could possibly stand this in Kansas summer!! I grew up in KC and went to college in Lawrence. I live in CO now, and one thing I do not miss is those 100+ temp and humidity days! :) Cheers to you for looking so cute without melting!

Btw, I found your blog about a year ago, and got so excited b/c I recognized the Lawrence alleys and cobblestone streets. Takes me back... :)

I love this look! I hope it's okay if I use it (and link back) in a street style post?

Super cute outfit! Love the glasses!

Oh I did the same thing the other day! Wearing black jeans on a hot summers day leads to being miserable if you're in the sun. Either way, the outfit is darling! I love the blouse:)

Just saw you on Delightful Dozen! I was super-excited to see a Kansas blogger. I'm not lucky enough to live in Lawrence, though! (This liberal is toughing it out in Wichita.)

I love your outfit, too! Especially your sunglasses and shoes!

I like this look! It would be a bit hot though. I've been living in dresses lately.

Sometimes you just feel like wearing pants, is all. I know I do! (and sometimes you just don't feel like shaving...)

Elegant outfit. Wow!

Katy! I love your outfits, but I think this is my favorite one that you've worn in a long time! Something about a flowy top and skinny pants just totally gets me. I feel like it's both no-fuss and comfortable (as comfortable as one can get in triple-digit weather! Oofta!) Love your blog!
