WIWW - Denim Vest, Skinny Jeans, and Flutter Sleeves

Because I spend so much time shopping, thrifting, altering clothing and thinking about what to wear, I thought it might be fun to post weekly of what outfits I've put together throughout the week for me or my daughter. I plan to have a WIWW (What I Wore Wednesday) post every week displaying either my style, Widget's style, or both.
My Mom-in-law had warned me about the humidity in Kansas and Missouri. She said all she could wear, after moving here from the dry state of Utah, was woven shirts (they 'breathe' better than knit). A few short years after they moved here from Utah, we did the same thing. Now, I still wear lots and lots of t-shirts and knit fabrics, but on occasion the humidity is especially high...so I pull out a button-down shirt (which is woven).


This shirt is mostly black and white, but some of the floral print is in a sepia tone (hints of brown). I grabbed my black cropped pants to emphasize the black in the floral print, and metallic sandals for a polished look.

Speaking of humidity: I flat ironed my hair the other day, but I just couldn't keep it from going frizzy (see the hair on the left side of my head in the picture below). I know I'm not the only one with this problem...Anyone know of a good hair product that truly fights the frizz but doesn't make your hair smell funny? I'm taking suggestions!

As I was putting laundry away, I saw my skinny jeans in the drawer, and do you what they did? They started singing to me! It was a beautiful thing :) So beautiful, in fact, that I decided to wear the skinny jeans for the day. I also wanted to wear some heels, but err on the side of comfortable as well. Add a flutter sleeve blouse with flowers on one side of the neckline, and the ensemble was complete.

Widget likes to jump in when the Hubby is taking a picture of me. We let her pose for a couple of shots, then directed her attention elsewhere...sneaky parents, we are! I wanted to include her outfit in today's post, though, because I absolutely love her vest (I really wish I could find one in my size!).

I am curious...What's the weather been like in your neck of the woods?
What do you wear to stay comfortable day to day?
