Outfit: Shoeper Challenge 2012 #39 and Dressing For Summer



RI Red wedges

I don’t know about you, but I find dressing for summer a bit of a challenge. What to wear to keep cool outside but not freeze inside in the air conditioning? How much skin to expose to stay cool, still be office appropriate and avoid sunburn? No, much as I love the warm weather I am far more at home layering up in sweaters and jackets.


Last night I went to the mall on my way home and got a few little treats for my new niece. Well, they are more treats for my sister as my niece is a bit little to appreciate them yet, but whatever. It was a whopping 26°C outside so I didn’t linger long and headed home to put my shorts on and sit in the garden. It stayed warm right up to around 10pm which was fabulous compared to the freezing cold nights of late. It made such a change to have the windows open instead of the fire and heating being on.


So, another pair of shoes is safe in the challenge. I have had a mini cull this week and my total is currently down to 77. So that puts me over halfway there with my saves. Awesome. These wedges were bought two summers ago from River Island, and I hold Shoeperwoman herself responsible for me buying them as she did nothing but rave about how comfy they are for several weeks after she purchased them. And she’s right, they are pretty comfy. The platform part of the wedge is so high that you don’t really feel like you are wearing heels, and the lining is fabric so they don’t rub at all.
