And it burned burned burned....

Oh hai! Greetings from the 8th* circle of Hell where it is currently 113 degrees with air so thick and full of moisture catfish can be seen zooming past your windows. Enjoy your stay in Des Moines! Ugh seriously, this has got to stop. It's just getting ridiculous. I mean sure we're midwesterners and we're used to hot and humid summers, but this? This is on a whole other level. I know we're not the only ones suffering. So to all you other poor poor heat stricken folks, stay cool and stay safe! And to those on the east coast and the prepared because it's coming your way.

Enough grumbling already. Hello new followers! A big thank you to my girl Gigi for linking me in her latest post, and thanks to all of you who made their way over here. I hope I do not disappoint!

Okay so to take my mind off this insane heat going on, I'm going to think about the things I want most for this fall. 

The blazer is kind of a left over from last fall. I never got one and still really really really want one. This year is the year.

These are the styles I live for. Classic, feminine and just a little bit preppy. I am so ready to say adios to shorts, tanks and flip flops. I know I know you all love summer. I'm sorry, I just can't get into it. I enjoy drinking beers on patios. But I actually enjoy doing it wrapped up in my Burberry scarf and North Face jacket more. What am I doing in Iowa right? Alaska/Canada here I come! 

I hope you're all beating the heat and staying cool! What are you loving/looking forward to this fall? Or are you not looking forward to it at all? You better be......;)



* while there are 9 circles in The Inferno, the 9th circle is actually all ice. We're in the one right above it, the one for people that commit fraud. The one that's still hot as balls.


  1. Ugh, it is SO HOT. Even my dogs do not want to go outside... that's bad.
    I love that outfit! It's so cute!! The picture of the model in the blazer is slightly disturbing though... Please tell me it's photoshopped. She looks like a skeleton in a blazer with saggy pants. lol

  2. I hear you at the heat! AC; love me, love me, love me...

    No particular styles, I'm just looking forward to the Fall.

  3. Epppsss! I thought that the mid 90s + killer humidity in Wisconsin was bad ... but you 113 degrees lays the smack down on our Wisconsin "heat" :)

    Stay cool!

  4. holy hell! i don't know how you're dealing with that kind of heat. it was 102 here yesterday and i honestly didn't even know what to do with myself. i am not made for heat!

  5. I hope you get a break from the heat soon - talk about miserable.

  6. i think i need a khaki blazer like that one!
