The summer solstice is today, isn't it? I think so. Astrologically the day in which the sun reaches it's southernmost point, and so the longest day of the year...
And am feeling the lethargy that starts to set in with the heat.. Some days I have a desire to step out looking all smart 'n smooth 'n super stylin', but the need to be cool, that is, cool as in temperature-wise and not as in "hey, maaaaaan", kind of a cool; wins out. And just getting my daily chores done.
Not sure which category this outfit fits into. I do feel kind of coooool, in my kind-of-newish trench skirt and super-minimalist-chic cami. But also feel pretty comfy and capable of facing some more Christmas shopping...
Today visited a few BIG chain stores to do a bit more shopping. Was dreading it. But, pleasant surprise; wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. Maybe the crowds are more organised than me, and have finished their preparations already, or maybe everyone is holding back for a terrific onslaught over the next few days. Maybe I was just lucky. Or just maybe the hip dark toughness of my outfit gave me the confidence to deal...
Anyhoo, got in, found what I wanted quick and got out, with pretty much no attendant queuing.
