Spotted.Chic has been looking quite sad lately – my last post was in September! To get myself off my lazy bum, I gave myself a mini intervention because wearing sweatpants on a semi-regular basis is a slippery slope. Once you own more than four pairs of sweats, you will never want to put on jeans again. I kid, I own WAY more than four pairs of sweat pants. I won’t give you guys an exact number, but think double digits.
Enough for the awkward introduction – now for the good stuff. When people ask me what the weather is like in Houston, I normally compare it to living with a teenager going through puberty. Five percent of the time you get perfect weather: sunny, 0% humidity, a little bit breezy; basically, the perfect sweater weather. About twenty percent of the time, you have the crappy, PMS days: 100% humidity and the second you step out the door, you are drenched in your own sweat. Finally, the last 75%, the weather is bearable: a little bit of humidity, not hot or cold, just MEH.
The problem with the “MEH” days is that I never know what to wear. It’s too cold for shorts, too hot for a sweater, so the best I can do is my boyfriend button-up. You can roll up the sleeves for when it gets hot and then with a pop of a button, you have a long-sleeve blouse – versatility people!
I then tucked my shirt into a classic pair of black skinnies and since I can’t even look at my boots without breaking out into a sweat, I went for a some ballet flats.
I was giving my friend who took this picture an air kiss. (I’m talking to you, Ashley!)
