Confession: I was skeptical when Lissa offered to let me try on this one-size-fits-most sweater from sustainable designer PLANET. I love me some oversized, but also know that big and long tends to work better on me than big and boxy. But this is a new line for Lissa and I wanted to give it a whirl. Plus I’m a sucker for the shredded look in a sweater. My inner grunge-girl just swoons.

It was art fair weekend this past weekend in Minneapolis, with Uptown and Powderhorn in full effect. So I finally busted out the true summer clothes – tanks, floaty skirts, and sandals – for the requisite hours of slow walking. We had gorgeous weather, but I was still glad to have gone for light layers.

This is the second time I wore and attempted to photograph this outfit, and the second time it rained the day I wore it. Yeesh! But the precipitation made the boots practical, and the fact that we saw the new Ghostbusters movie made the layers necessary. I saw people going into the theater carrying blankets, and I could totally relate. I love that theaters are cool refuges on hot and/or rainy summer days, but sometimes the staff can get a little over-enthusiastic with the A/C.
