So in addition to getting my act together and getting the daily walk project printed, framed and hung, I have been doing some “OMG IT’S SO HOT ALREADY” shopping. I am going to do my best not to be a total shut in this summer and have been trying to revamp my wardrobe into more shorts and dresses in the hopes that it will allow me to leave my dark, air-conditioned cave.

Given that I have already sweat through my clothes a few times and we aren’t really in the “hot” months yet? I don’t have super high hopes but at least maybe I’ll be more comfortable indoors when the A/C has to be run at a temp that isn’t all that cool just to give us a break from the outrageous bills. UGH.

It seems I do best in shorts from the GAP. I already have a pair from last year in orange that I love and just picked up a pair in navy

at the outlet for $8. I also grabbed this button down from Target to go with it. I love the combo of the coral and navy and of course, I am always sold on a polka dot. Plus it’s super light weight and breathable, I can also layer it into fall and winter. I almost bought the pink seahorse shirt as well but you see below why the jury is out on that one still.

Then I went back to the outlet and picked up these hot pink shorts and this white tank with eyelet detail.

I am really debating more of the tanks ($8) because they had so many cute colors but I am trying not to do what I normally do, which is just grab a bunch of the same thing in different colors, this go round.

I desperately want a pair of gray shorts but so far the outlet is coming up empty for me in that regard so I might have to bite the bullet and go full price GAP for those. I found a pair at Target but they totally didn’t work from behind, AT ALL.

While at Target I fell in love with a mullet dress but it was just too mullet-y for me to pull the trigger. I am still thinking about the cuteness of EVERYTHING ELSE about the damn dress though so I might just have to pull the trigger and get it fixed.

I also bought another lip balm at Target, I have so many of the Revlon Just Bitten Lip Balm Stains (could the name *be* any longer) that I had to buy a pencil bag to carry them, too.

This lip balm is different than my usual Revlon choices, however, this time it’s by Pixi and it custom adjusts to your own Ph balance to give you your “perfect” pink. It’s called Unique Pink.

and two pics of me, natural (late day in my cave with no lights on but near a window) light with the forward facing iPhone 5 camera, wearing it.
