Today was my third day of school.
Twas glorious.
Hope y'all are having a lovely end to your summer!  I received the giant, phone book-sized Vogue and Harper's Bazaar magazines the other day and I'm now SOSOSOSOSOSOOO ready for fall fashion.  As per usual with fashion mags, I'll just now have to wait until the weather catches up.

This is a weird "fashion" post.  There really isn't much thought that goes into workout clothes.  For climbing, as long as your shorts are long enough underneath your harness, you're good to go.  I can tell you that this sunhat was absolutely necessary as it was 90+ degrees with not a cloud in the sky.
I had the best time today.  I haven't been outside climbing in a year-ish and I jumped right into leading (on my first climb!!), which although scary, was quite rewarding at the finish.

 [Dress: Thrifted;  Shoes: Zara]

I have to say, this might be my favorite post yet.
This dress is special to me not only because I found it buried in a thrift store, but also because I wore it to the Kentucky Derby in 2010.  It's probably one of the classiest numbers I own!  The shoes have their own story, too, of course.  I spotted them in Paris and knew they must immediately be mine.  
The neon.  The suede.  The platform.
I love mixing an older piece, like this dress, with modern, in-your-face shoes.  It keeps things fresh, ya know?
Anyway, this is another post brought to you from my new house.  Above is a peak into our living room and below is the "OFFICIAL" throw line for darts.
I feel so lucky to have found this place.
Yesterday, we watched the Curiosity Rover land on Mars.

Sooooooo, I don't know about you guys, but I've been watching the Olympics like it's my job.  The athletes are hot, the stories are inspiring and some of the sports are just weird.  I mean, since when is trampolining a sport??  I LOVE IT!
I didn't realize it when I put together this outfit, but my clothing is currently reflecting my Olympics obsession.  The stripes are a given.  When am I not wearing stripes?  But the rest of the outfit--the colors and the high/low or "mullet" hemline--screams AMERICUHHHHHH!
U.S.A. all the way.
I hope you're having a lovely day!!

P.S. THIS IS MY NEW HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
