Skin Was Showin’ Hot Night, Wind Was Blowin’, Where You Think You’re Going Baby…

Poor Little It Girl - Gap Black Cardigan, J.Crew White Pleated Shorts, Zara Nude Sandals

Shorts: J.Crew | Cardigan: Gap | Clutch: Gigi New York
Heels: Zara (similar by Chinese Laundry) | T-shirt: J.Crew (last seen here)
Necklace: similar by Baublebar | Lipstick: Revlon “Fuchsia Fusion”

We had a pretty big heat wave come through DC this past weekend. Going from 30 degree temps to upwards of 85, it was downright hot! Unfortunately for me, I live in an apartment complex that doesn’t turn on the AC in the building until late May, so I’m basically living in an oven until we can finally get cool air. With that, my boyfriend and I had no choice to head out for dinner to a nice, air conditioned restaurant. Even though I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt, I still felt dressy enough with the addition of a statement necklace, heels, and cardigan.

  13. Love this! I especially love that cardigan, and I need to upgrade my current black cardigan which is not looking so black anymore. I have to admit that I recognized the title lyrics but I could not figure out the song. I guess that means I haven’t heard it in a loooong time!
