Beatin' the Heat in Pleats

Here's a fun fact about me: I break a sweat at basically the drop of a hat. Like, if I have to bend down to pick up a hat, I would probably start shvitzing. So despite the fact that the blistering D.C. heat dropped to a brisk 92 degrees yesterday, I still had to take all the necessary wardrobe precautions to meet up for brunch with Erin, Rosa, and Sara. (We're all now bbf--blog best friends. I would strongly encourage visiting their beautiful blogs!)
To celebrate the arrival of my newest Equipment top,  I made my mint pleat skirt play host for a day out in the city.
 My rhinestone necklace played chaperone, obviously.
And my Shoemint wedges tagged along because, well, they're kinda needy.

I absolutely love this! That sleeveless equipment blouse makes me so jealous. and the fact that you have new blog best friends. I'm as needy as your shoemint shoes.

That first photo was my favorite, you look FIERCE, lady! So fun, can't wait to do it again. We should pick one day this week to wear our cutest outfits to work and do a lunch-n-shoot!

OMG, Erin beat me to the comment, but yes, FIERCE is the word I was going for when I looked at these photos.
Had a blast and yes, Blogger BFFs!

I feel ya honey, the slightest movement in this unforgiving heat and I'm dripping. I've given up on looking nice until about October.

Love the look @ thanks for the idea - I have a skirt very similar to this and never thought of this pairing!
