WIW - Casual Peacock take 2

It's supposed to be 105 this afternoon. 105!! After work I have a happy hour event at an outdoor beer garden venue, so last night I went through evaluating what options I had that I could both wear to work (casual environment) and would work for the happy hour.

I decided on this top because it's a couple layers of thin mesh and works very well in the heat. I needed to be even more cool than when I wore it last time so instead of sneakers I chose sandals and went with a necklace that hangs low so it wouldn't feel suffocating. Sometimes even the smallest necklace up on the neck will feel hot to me.

Top - Sweet Pea (thrifted)

Necklace - I'm not sure where it's from, it was a gift several years ago when I was maid of honor at a good friends wedding. It's silver and on one side it has an etched rosemary bush, on the other side it says "There's rosemary, that's for remembrance" quoted from Hamlet =)

Sandals - Jambu

Bottoms - These are from a Jr plus brand I found at Ross. They are lightweight but have stretch to them and feel nice.

    You look great Abie! I love the prints you choose. That necklace (and the story behind it) is so sweet! Love the top, is that a faux layer that looks like a black cami? Those clams are super flattering. I think you're going to need a cold one at happy hour tonight! Have fun!

    So pretty! I love the way your lipstick and gorgeous hair echo the colors in the top. Brilliant.

    This works great - don't you love your Jambu sandals? I have a pair of their clogs and they are so incredibly comfortable. Another fab outfit Abie!

    Thanks everyone =)

    Claire - I never thought about it looking like a cami, but you're right, it does kind of look like that. It's not a faux layer, its more like a color block I suppose. They are pieced together but the black isn't underneath the print.

    Shannon - These are my favorite sandals as far as comfort and being able to take a lot of abuse. I can walk on these for days, defiantly 12 hour shoes. This specific style i believe is discontinued but still available at some places on discount. I am considering picking up one of the metallic options. The minimal straps do very well in the heat.

    I really love that top teamed with the denim clams! You do a great job of picking out interesting patterns and flattering colors in your tops!

    ooh, pretty! I love SP tops but they are often so low cut - it's nice to have that double layer here. Very nicely done.
