hot and sticky


I flew back east this weekend for my husband's college reunion, where, along with the beer drinking, reminiscing, and marching in the P-rade, I sweated buckets in the humid, breeze-less, 88-degree (i.e., very un-California) weather. So while my husband caught up with his classmates, I sharpened my high-heat-index dressing skills. Next time I'm caught in steamy conditions, anything loose-fitting and white will be my best friend--not the form-fitting, high-waisted shorts or the long dark-hued dress I had packed! A hat with a wide brim, like this, will be my go-to, and so will comfortable, barely-there sandals like these or these (on sale!). I'll also have pieces like this Jenni Kayne shirt dress, this Free People linen mini, this lightweight Christoph Sauvat top, this Dorothy Perkins wrap dress, and this J.Crew linen jumpsuit at the ready--and I will be sure to have a jolly old time! Hip, hip, rah, rah, rah...

Wait. Is it a top and skirt?

I also missed the mark at Princeton Reunions this year. I packed poorly and was melting in a not great romper and lugging around an annoying clutch. Next year I need these things, plus a cross body. Any Rex's there? Next reunion is 2020 but will call on you before that visit for packing tips!

Ditto on the dress or top and skirt in that pic! Any idea who makes it?

Love this shirt! Any ideas where it's from?

The top and skirt are by Jesse Kamm, an LA-based designer. The pieces are from her Spring 2013 collection. Gorgeous!
