It’s a Jungle Out There!

Posted on: July 19, 2013

Heat advisories were in affect for the day as the heat index again soared.  In some parts of the area as high as 108!!!!

So how does a fashionista respond to this?  


By dressing in ruffled animal print and the olive vest she promised to style on Friday’s ! 


You might get use to seeing me in hats as this little lady has always protected her face from the sun…

I love any chance to wear these Franco Sarto Shoes I found on Ebay and this is the debut of my Aigner Purse aquired at the Goodwill Outlet Center.  


Ruffles and the tied waist meant very little accessorizing necessary.  I opted for plain hoop earrings then stacked on three vintage bracelets from an Ebay lot.

Dear Readers, My niece and son both told me I looked ready to go on a Safari , so hence my post title… I usually go for bright colors or even white when the weather is irritating me.  For some reason I woke up this morning really missing my animal prints, as I don’t wear them as much in warmer temps…It’s funny sometimes what inspires an outfit, isn’t it?   I hope you all are staying cool and getting ready for a fun weekend!   Hope you use it to recharge!  Any special plans this weekend?  Your comments are welcomed and appreciated! 


I am so grateful that I at least have some AC, even if it is the window unit  for now…

I am grateful for my husband who worked late this afternoon for taking my youngest and niece to the Y. It’s not often that I get that kind of break!

I am grateful that I finally have a working debit card.. (Fiasco where they sent me two that went to my daughter’s account)

I am grateful to a friend of a friend who is selling me a week of Shakeology to try before I decide to purchase a full month.. Gotta say, I tried one and the brain fog that accompanies menopause was lifted!!!! Keeping fingers crossed. 

I am grateful to my son who went on a search to Trader Joes, WholeFoods, 2 grocery stores  and a Target store looking for Yerba Mate Tea in 3 flavors without complaining.

You look cool and stylish! I love the ruffles and the belted vest. You have definitely got your moneys worth out of this vest already 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you, Good point about getting my money’s worth. You have a great weekend too!

You look so cute!
Ohhhh nooooo…you mean to tell me brain fog accompanies menopause??? Oh, boy. I’m in trouble. I have enough normal fog and menopause hasn’t even kicked in yet. ha

Menopause hasn’t kicked in for me yet either, but the perimenopause stage includes brain fog at least for my self and all my friends…
This brand of tea in any ot it’s flavors has helped me a lot with that…
