Color Me Impressed

I have this knack for wearing the exact wrong outfit for the occasion. Case in point, not only is it supposed to pour today, but I'm also supposed to spend my day at work cleaning out bike tool kits covered in grit and grime. And yet, I wear a bright skirt that'll no doubt end up covered in grease by the end of the day.

The thing about me is I'm also incredibly stubborn. I'm sure the majority of those reading this blog are well aware, but to the approximately 3 people reading this that don't know me in real life, it's true. I could make some Taurus joke and call myself bullheaded, but I already make enough bad jokes as it is. The point is, as soon as I bought this skirt and top over the weekend, I already knew it'd be showing up in Wednesday's outfit (because Monday and Tuesday already were featuring newly purchased items). So rain and bike grease be damned, I'm going to pull it off. 

I think this is the most Urban Outfitters I've ever worn at one time, but I instantly fell in love with the skirt and the 2 for $24, fit like a dream, come in awesome prints v-necks were too good to pass up. As summer starts to peak around the bend, I have 2 major clothing requirements: 1) Is it cool enough to stand up to the summer heat? 2) Can I ride my bike while wearing it? These both pass the test with flying colors. (Sadly, the shoes do not- they won't fit in my toe cages.) What are your favorite picks for this summer?
