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.

Quite a lot of coverage for a July outfit, eh? I’ve been dealing with some health stuff lately that’s made me even more temperature-sensitive than usual, so I’m layered up for fall on a warm-ish summer day. But it gave me a chance to try out this funky layered tunic from LISSA the Shop and keep my Fryes from gathering dust. I’m on the road to recovery now and temps are soaring this week, so expect more seasonally-appropriate outfits, soon!
