So goes the whine of me - a total mosquito magnet. Who lives in the hot muggy South. And who is sick of having to spray myself down with OFF! every day in the summer before going outside like any other person would before going wilderness (except I'm just going to Target).
You ladies have any remedies for not attracting bugs? And what do you do to keep the inevitable bites from itching so bad?
BTW - trying a new spot in the house for my OOTD pics. I don't want you thinking my place has no furniture, but I find it a lot less distracting in the outfit pics if the backgrounds are fairly clear. Makes up a bit for my overall lack of photography skills. I still need to buy myself a new camera!
Love this jacket. It is like a structured blazer made out of light-weight sweatshirt material.
And it's fully lined in a soft pin-striped fabric.
I kind of want to go back to my Anthro and get the other colors now, please.
(OK, I'll just go on Saturday ...)
Jacket: Anthropologie Cartonnier Flipside (now on sale - sold out online but I've seen lots in stores)
Top: Forever 21 Effortless Calm tunic (worn here before)
Skirt: NY & Company abstract print (worn here before)
Shoes: Franco Sarto snake print slingbacks
Belt: Banana Republic woven leather
And I just found this out by accident last night, but if you like Boden, they have a fairly new-ish (maybe just new to me?) off-shoot called Johnnie B with clothes for teens (i.e., clothes us fellow shorties may also be able to squeeze into). Granted, the overall look is a little young, but there are a few super-sweet pieces:
Stripe Woven Skirt - in two colors
Floaty Cami - in three prints
Ballet Pumps - in three colors
