Anna and I took these photos yesterday in disgusting, grey, humid heat which will be leading throughout this whole week. Hours of summer tanning have been converted into movies indoors and online window shopping.
In this look I'm wearing a black maxi dress with a very high leg slit. I was tempted to pose Angelina style, but I refrained. The slit hit a bit high for my personal taste (if panties are on display, lining all the way!) so I have on my favorite basic black bodycon skirt underneath. The dress gives off a minimalistic, A. Wang type of feel, and that's what my style normally leans toward. But summer puts me in a slightly boho-y mood that even grey skies can't fight. So instead, I opted for this floral kimono top, a coin/leaf necklace, and my little fingernail ring. The fingernail ring has proved to actually be functional. It's currently covering up a very poorly painted nail. There are no shoes to be mentioned, as Anna and I decided to go barefoot in the dewy and very unstable grass. Don't want any broken ankles this summer.
