Weekend Wardrobe: Birdcage Dress

 Dress: Vintage Fixer-Upper; Necklace: Anthropologie; Belt: Vintage; Shoes: Swedish Hasbeens.

Boy oh boy, it sure got hot all of a sudden! I love summer, but I could really do without these days where it stays in the high 80s until 11pm. One of the things I love about the place I live is that it gets lots of light, but when the high temperatures hit, the combination of southern, western, and eastern exposure means that my place just bakes all day! Fortunately for me, my parents live just a few miles away in a cute little AIR CONDITIONED house, so I got whisked away to spend an afternoon baking cupcakes (more on that later this week!) in a nice air conditioned kitchen.

Now that I'm back in my hot, hot home, I've got fans blaring, popsicles in the freezer, aloe vera in the fridge (extra cold!), and a cool washcloth draped over my neck.

Do you have any favorite ways to beat the heat? 

Til next time!

    1. Thank you! I'm looking forward to your DIY post! I can do some pretty serious sewing, but don't know a think about adding my own print, so that will be great to check out.

      You're totally right, sun is definitely preferable to snow!
