Love for Houndstooth

Hi Everybody!

How did the weekend treat you? I suppose, like me, at least some of you have been half roasted and baked by now. The unforgiving heat proves beyond doubt that global warming is no joke. Hopefully we learn a lesson and do whatever is in our capacity to prevent further damages.

Meanwhile, some tips to deal with the heat :
- Have a glass of water with a dash of lemon, the first thing in the morning.
- Make sure to have at least 1 fruit with high water-content as a pre-breakfast snack.
- Keep a bottle of water or ice tea (without sugar) handy at all times.
- As far as possible, wear light cotton or linen outfits and use a good, non-greasy sunscreen anytime you step out in the sun.

Now for today's post, a revival of my old houndstooth skirt.

I did post pictures last year in the same skirt, and back then, I had paired it with a red blazer (here). This time, I kept the outfit just a simple black and white. I only added a brooch that I had picked up at...oopsssss..the Dollar Store! It matches the skirt perfectly, and my dollar pays off.
