The start of Seattle summers can be frustrating; the weather makes for a bipolar wardrobe. Those layers that you might have packed away in the hopes of sun and skin need to be kept close. I keep this cozy long sweater jacket and my camo cargos tucked in the back of the closet on the top shelf, just in case.

In the summer I scower the city for garage sales and it's rare that I would expect to find anything but my next knick-knack. A couple of weekends ago I scored some cute clothing purchases from an oh-so-typical hippie from Queen Anne. Under a mound of pilly tops, there it was, $2 for a great asian patterned tank! No pills on this one but the perfect amount of fading and stretched out cotton sung to me. I asked the girl if I could have it for $1.50 instead so that I could grab a coffee after. What an unexpected treasure. I wore it today with my F21 $2.50 tank top, seems like so much paleez, my skinny jeans, my new hooded sandals, a Tarina Tarantino wooden necklace and bracelet and hidden in the back of my closet was an old Kymio slat jacket that I ripped the shoulder pads out of. Funny how you can feel all new in something old.
The first day of fall, the last days of summer heat. I'd die for another chance to wear a strapless dress with NO jacket because I know what's coming. So I slipped on my DKNY sugar-pink pumps, rolled on my "CALL ME" candy bracelet and slithered into my EXPRESS strapless cotton candy dress. I think my outfit says, "I will enjoy this 80+ degree weather, I will, I will!"
