Blazin' Hot

Blazer - Forever 21

Well, we're down to the stretch.  Just a few more days and summer freedom will be ours!!!!

But dang!  I shouldn't be so excited because it was so hot this weekend that I know the summer temps are going to be unbearable!  Even at 7:30 this morning, it was hot!  But let's just disregard the fact that I was wearing jeans and a blazer.

We've had a "Jeans Week" fundraiser for the last two weeks, and I'm trying not to completely slip into summer mode by wearing jeans and slipper sandals.  So, to avoid that, I took this cute, summer mini-dress and tucked it into my jeans (not a new invention)... and gave this white blazer another try.  Although I knew that it was going to be hot, I was adamant about wearing this blazer again.  (I did give up on the leopard heels, though.)

When my husband saw me this morning, he asked, "What's going on at school today?"

I replied with a sarcastic, "School is going on at school today."

Rather than laughing with me, he laughed at me and remarked, "Okay, then.  But it's hot as hell outside."

Don't you hate it when your man makes a good, common-sense point about your outfit that makes you feel ridiculous?

However, not allowing him to win this battle of common-sense dressing, I retorted,

"Well, then...I'll fit right in."  ;)

And although it REALLY WAS hot as hell in my white-hot blazer...I refused to let him see me sweat!  Literally and figuratively!


  1. You look gorgeous! I love the wide stripes under the blazer. And honestly, if you were literally hot, I can't tell. You just look figuratively hot to me!
