We had a barbecue at my boss’ house today. I dress conservatively to work on purpose, but a barbecue on a hot summer afternoon was reason enough to loosen the chastity belt. My apologies for the photos again; I will get it right soon, I hope.

Skirt: I bought this black and red printed skirt in Toronto for CAD 10 many years ago. It is a standard 3-hole wrap skirt and I love the tribal print. A great choice for a hot day.
Top: 100% silk top with an open back, elasticized waistband, high neck and 4-button closure in the front. ET featured it on SaM a while ago. The large butterfly sleeves and the open back make this a challenging shape. Every slight breeze makes the whole thing balloon up like a parachute – not advisable unless you are OK with looking like you should have given birth a couple of weeks ago. I like this top because of its loose and somewhat shapeless silhouette to balance out the form-fitting wrap bottom.
Shoes: Same sandals as yesterday.
Accessories: The $1 cuff from the flea market, the chronograph and the large Target bag for an extra shot of summer.
