I’ve been talking about the weather a lot. It’s been HOT. And Humid. In fact, I checked the weather forecast across the United States, and there are few places hotter than Minneapolis right now. I checked Miami, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston – all not as hot as Minneapolis – at least not today.
So, staying cool is definitely on my mind!
The minidress keeps me cool, while the sheer floral shirt adds a little bit of interest without adding heat. The other great reason to throw on a little sheer top over a body con mini – it hides a less than perfect tummy!
Putting my hair up in a sock bun keeps also helps to keep me cool! It’s amazingly secure.
This outfit reminds me of my Lemon Meringue doll from when I was a kid!
And of course the deets:
Chunky Gold Jewelry is so CUTE right now!

You know, I just LOVE LOVE vintage jewelry. Most of my pieces have special memories associated with how I cam across them, how I found them, how I hunted for them. The 54″ Monet necklace was something I have been hunting down for over 3 years. It all started with an H. Stern Fluid Gold necklace that I saw in Vegas – over 10 feet long. Ever since then, I’ve been searching for a LONG LONG gold necklace that I could wrap. This vintage Monet necklace is the closest I have found, and I absolutely love it!
The chunky gold necklace is an item I have been lusting after for about a year. It’s simple, but, amazingly, hard to find in great condition, in the right length, and in a nice heavy weight. I finally found it just waiting for me at June Resale Boutique in Uptown. Not only do they have great luxury brands at fantastic prices, they have some GREAT vintage pieces! If you’re lucky, the item you’ve been waiting for might just be sitting there waiting for you too!
Stay Cool Lovecats!
PS – I’m TOTALLY Bananas over vintage gold jewelry! Are you?
