[OOTD] A Face for Aviators

In Atlanta summers, we get a nice, long stretch of three digit temps (or at minimum 90s). This makes it difficult to dress, because outdoors it's crazy hot, and indoors it's frigid. My office likes to keep it freezing to the point where yesterday I sat at my desk with my little heater on because my feet were cold. 

So what's the answer? Layers!

Top: Gap, $18, I got it for 30% off on a sale day (here) | Jeans: Chip & Pepper via TJ Maxx, $7 (recent!) | Belt: Target, $10 | Shoes: Kohl's, $25 (spring 2011) | Cardigan: Elle via Kohl's, $? (2010) | Scarf: London street market, $5 | Earrings: Charlotte Russe, $3.30 (Winter 2012) | Bracelets: INPink, $? | Sunnies: New York & Co, $5 (2011)

When I wore this earlier in the week, hubby said "I think you have a face for aviators" after complimenting me on how I looked in my sunnies. He's not the first one to love these sunglasses on me - so maybe I do have a "face for aviators"??

When I got too hot in the office, off came the scarf.

And when the workday is done, off goes the cardigan.

Arm party!

I am totally aware my bra straps are out, haha...just wanted to show off the fun back of this top! I only took my cardi off for these pics.

Last night I spent all evening baking some "crunkcakes" for ladies night tonight. A group of my girlfriends and I are meeting up at one of their apartments in Atlanta and having a few cocktails before heading out to shake our booties all night. I made margarita and strawberry margarita cupcakes, as well as kir royale cupcakes (and of course I had to drink both a kir and a kir royale while I was baking - HA!). And yes, the margarita cupcakes have tequila in them and the kir royales have champagne and creme de cassis for some boozy goodness. I'm really excited and hope they taste as good as I think they do!!

**For those who are unfamiliar, kir is white wine mixed with a little creme de cassis, which is blackberry liqueur. A kir royale is champagne with creme de cassis. I found this drink in Brazil, I believe (or was it South Africa?? I'd have to double check my journal, haha) when I was on SAS and it's been a favorite for nearly 10 years now. I just gave you your new favorite drink. You're welcome. (Oh, and some places use Chambord instead of creme de cassis - slight difference as Chambord is raspberry instead of blackberry, but it's the same idea.) Cheers!

Happy Friday!
