Outfit of the day

Heat Wave

Whenever the heat hits here in Los Angeles, I think it must finally be the start of summer and I fling open my closet doors, gleefully tossing the wool skirts and trousers and jackets into storage and hugging my short dresses and playsuits close to my chest. Three days later I usually shuffle, head hung low, to the wool skirts and trousers and jackets and hang them back up when the temperature moves back from 95ºF to 65ºF. But this time–did it really happen this time?

It sure as hell feels like it. Even here at my office on the west side it’s beastly hot at 93ºF. So I thought it a perfect opportunity to break out this little beauty, a 1950s play set (the shirt and shorts are separates!) that basically looks like new. I scored this on ebay last week and have been watching the thermometer creep up until it felt appropriately sweltering. Check out this crazy pattern!

The shirt gives you the option of tucking it in, with the matching belt, or you can tie it in a bow at the waist. I felt the tuck option was better for work. And the label is great. I’ve never seen anything else by Loomtogs, but it seems like they put out some quality goods. 

Check out that script. So cool.

Next time, some high class swimsuits. Hello, summer.
