Teaser Weather

 It's the teaser weather of the year.  In Arizona we referred to it as monsoon season, and sometimes we would get only dust, sometimes dust with only enough rain to get your car dirty, and if luck we would get actual rain.
Our teaser weather here in Virginia is high building storm clouds, with thunder that rumbles in the distance for an hour or two prior to a storm hitting, and if lucky the storm actually arrives to relieve us with cool rain.

So, it's summertime in Virginia, and it's uncomfortable weather which requires dressing for it.

 If I step outdoors I need a hat and sunglasses to protect my fair skin and light blue eyes from the damaging rays of the sun.  And for those who live in Arizona.... take note that YOU need to do this too.
Your face probably looks like leather if you are not doing this.

My hat is one that has been in my sun protecting skin arsenal for years, and the sunglasses are prescription and I highly recommend getting a pair of prescrips if you are an eyeglass wearer.  Can't stress this enough.

 The shirt is a fabric called tencil and it's one that works well for me.  It wrinkles very little. So many cute summer tops in the stores, but unless they are a fabric that breathes, unlike polyester, then I can't wear them.  I really choose not to wear unbreathable fabric tops or shirts because... whew..... well, you know what they do when it comes to summertime body odor.  Just DON'T wear them, Ladies.... I beg of you, especially if you are standing near me in a check-out line at the store.
Thank you in advance.

So, the shirt was purchased locally at the Penelope store in Daleville, and I love that it's just long enough to cover my rear and crotch area since I am wearing leggings.
I bought the leggings at our local Wal-Mart..... they are quite long so fit me well.  I checked, and they cannot be purchased from Wal-Mart online, but the brand does have their own website.  They are called On The Go Leggings, and they are true leggings, not those jean jeggings, not tights... LEGGINGS.  

HERE IS THE LINK, and they are quite inexpensive if you are in need of more than one pair.  
They come in regular sizes as well as Plus Sizes.  I am 5'7", wear a size 12 or 14 jeans, and I purchased a size XL in the leggings.  Probably could have fit in the size Large, but I opted for a little extra room in case they accidentally get tossed into the dryer.  I don't dry a lot of my slacks or leggings because if hung to dry they simply last a lot longer.

It's an easy to wear summer outfit.  
How's your summer going?
