This has got to be tiring hearing about because it is SO tiring living it - we are having CRAZY heat in SoCal right now. It was the second weekend in October and we had temps over 100 degrees this weekend. We only have AC in my son's room, so I cranked it on high and had a fan blowing the cool air out into the rest of the space. It was still like 85 or more degrees inside, but compared to the triple digits outside, it felt cool. Fortunately the sun is setting earlier, so its cooling earlier, and we're supposed to have cooler weather as the week progresses, so fingers crossed!
I was able to meet up with an photog friend of mine early one morning, before the real heat set in, to shoot these looks that I'm anxious to actually wear. He's the first photographer I ever shot with when I was attempting to model and act, and we've stayed in touch. He shot my maternity photos when I was pregnant with my son and we always have a great time shooting, but haven't done it in quite a while. It was such fun to work together again - I hope we can do it more regularly now that the blog gives us purpose. :)
Adam Lippes recently released a very cute capsule collection for Target - all these pieces work so well together and will totally work apart. The heels run about a half size small, but they are the perfect height, and so cute (there are some adorable flats as well.) The shirt dress is long (I am 5'11" and wearing a small - the sleeves are actually long enought!!) And the sweater vest has pocket! Yay for pockets! I think all 3 are still available online if you can't find them in your local store.
