Turn up the Heat


We all know how to dress when the weather is cold or hot but the fine kettle of fish remains what to wear when the weather itself gets all goofy on us and keeps playing hide and go seek. A little too confused to make up it’s own darn mind? Cold one day, hot the next? Or cold indoors, muggy outdoors. Lets not forget cold one hour, hot the next and then rainy soon after.

I know! You stay 10 steps ahead of the game by dressing accordingly. Pile on the layers and peel off as the day progresses. That sounds so cliche right? Try covering up some to please the chill and bare some to please the heat. That totally confuses the weather I promise, ;). 

That's exactly what I did as I people watched at the park. It was so peaceful I really wanted to hang out there all day. I should have brought a book. And snacks of course. Or even invited a friend for a picnic. Oh well. It was just me and my phone, listening to every song from Beyonce's Lemonade. Which song is your favorite? I love them all especially "Don't hurt yourself", "All Night",  "Pray you catch me" and "Hold Up".

If you’re thinking I could use a day like this then you’re in luck cos warm summer days are around the corner. The weather is about to turn up the heat and sumer lovers all over are gearing up.

Hope you had a great week. Mine was extremely busy. On the flip side, it's teacher appreciation next week and the goodies are already starting to flow. And summer vacation is 20 work days away. Oh the joys of being a teacher!

Most importantly my twins graduate college (UC Berkeley, the best public college in the world, #proudmom) next week and my lil girl graduates 8th grade in a couple weeks. Those are the best mothers day gifts ever. You know I am beside myself with excitement. It surely pays to pop pop pop the babies out early. 
Rock your weekend darlings!

  2. I think not popping babies out early is one of the mistakes that I made.LOL! My frustration is when it's cold inside the house and warm outside.We keep going from AC to heat. You look charming. I love the combo so much!

  3. Oh, I hate those days when the weather changes constantly. Luckily sun finally came out here in London. Fingers crossed, it's here to stay.

    I'm loving this look on you, Idu. The jacket is amazing.

  29. You look smoking hot! I absolutely love those heels....and your legs look a mile long. Such a stunning outfit!!!!!! You certainly showed us how to deal with this crazy weather...it has nothing on you. Layering is indeed a must for anyone with this weather....and that is not a bad thing either because layering can be so much fun.

    I didn't heard a single song from Lemonade yet. I tried looking it up on youtube, trying to find that new music video because I saw one illustration of it, but all I found on youtube were videos about the divorce between her and Jay Z (looks like I was the only one that didn't know about that)....I think I should try to listen to radio from time to time, it is bound to come up sooner or later.

    The twins are graduating! how exciting! and your girls is starting 8th grade? Marvellous! Congrats on all that...you must be a proud mother:)!!!!! and Happy Mother's day!
