melting.

top: c/o Oasap / dress turned skirt: Forever 21 / wedges (last season): c/o Blowfish Shoes / necklace: c/o Le Mode Accessories / clutching together clutch: c/o Le Mode Accessories 

though i could be referring to the USA Men's swim team (particularly Ryan Lochte - i apparently have a thing for Ryans - mmm) or even the USA Men's gymnastic team or possibly Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder (as i have been on a continuous roll watching VD on Netflix), but i'm thinking more along the lines of the southern humidity. thank the good Lord that i was born into an era of knee-length dresses, open-toed sandals, shorts, and sleeveless tops because i do not believe i could have survive in a time era of bloomers, corsets, layers of petticoats and puffy sleeves and then have to suffer the humidity of summer. but i totally give props to those women. you go, you awesome women of thick uncomfortable layers, who handled all of it with more grace than i ever could.


and back to the whole melting thing, as much as those guys make awesome eye-candy, there is only one man who makes me melt. and he is better looking and hotter than any vampire or Olympian that i know. when i am around him, i am one big ole, messy puddle.

much love.
{happy monday, friend.}

  11. Oh man, I don't know if I could ever survive the South in a petticoat. I'd probably just run around naked in a field.
    I loved watching the swimming. So intense!

  19. When thinking back to fashions of old, I can only hope that all of the hype about global warming is true and those women did not have to suffer in 110 degree temperatures without AC AND in those outfits. I can't even imagine. Also, I haven't seen a crop top look that perfect with an outfit since the 90s.

  27. I love that clutch. I should have bought it instead of buying three necklaces, actually I like only two of the necklaces I bought.

    Le Mode has some great stuff. My coworkers is obsessed with it too after she saw my necklace.
