The big news is the weather. Yes, we're having a heat wave. Have you ever seen "There's No Business Like Show Business"? I love old movies.
First of all, I am totally delinquent on my blog reading, so I'll be catching up on that later this evening. Can't wait to see what everyone has been up to. I never even posted yesterday because I was just wiped out after all the family (including their puppy) left. It was so much fun. Kids had a ball, puppies had a ball, my mom loved seeing all the kids together, my dad loved seeing the 2 puppies together. I enjoyed visiting without having to leave home. And...ice cream cake Saturday night for my nephew's bday - yum!
So yesterday was hot...again. Ooooh, I think it might be summer! And what's better on a hot summer day than a soft, cool tshirt...like the J Crew boyfriend tissue vneck tee? And it was so hot, I bypassed brights and went right to cool neutrals. Gray and white. Visually it helped me cool down. The skirt IRL is from Target last summer - so comfy, so lightweight, so perfect with any tee. It's a standard travel piece, great for wearing while driving since it's already gauzy so wrinkles don't show, and it covers a hot car seat if the car has been sitting in the sun. And ahhhh, the beloved Liz gladiator sandals from Isaac Mizrahi at Target last summer. Seriously, he had to know when he named these, doncha think? I should hunt these on eBay, I love them so much. I lived in the bronze and black ones last summer. But you've heard about that before. (BTW - my hair only lasted about 45 minutes before it was up in a ponytail. Why wasn't I smart enough to start out that way?)
Polyvore for Sunday:
Wearing Today - 04/26/09 by HeidiGblog featuring Old Navy tank tops
And then today, sadly, we had to go to a funeral this morning. The father of a childhood friend of hubby's passed away last week. Makes you think...a lot. Hug your parents, hug your kids, hug your friends. We only have so long with each other, you know?
Back to the superficial since that's where I specialize, J Crew Cotton-cashmere bouquet cardi - perfect for bare arms inside a church in summer. The dress is from Ann Taylor Loft, fall 2007. It always makes me feel like Audrey Hepburn. It's knit, so it's insanely comfy, and I actually kept it on most of the day because a sleeveless knit dress seemed like the right choice....right up until soccer practice.

And then for soccer at 5:30 and boot camp at 7:00 we have the "wearing later today" Polyvore. I love these skorts from Target. They are the best for walking - totally comfy, and look better on me than any athletic shorts I have found. I just wish I could find a bottle of water that large, because I would all over it today. No IRL pics because I just changed, and it's really not *that* interesting.

See you all out on the blogosphere!!! Last week for the Mickey card...who's headed to JC?
