Blokey and I are on our way to see Mighty Sparrow, the Calypso King, at a free noon concert at Metrotech. It's not for fun, it's part of his dissertation research. I picked up this airy shirt dress while shopping with Jesse.anne.o and What I Wore a couple weeks ago, and while it can be a bit short, it's the perfect one piece for the fourth hot day in a row. Did I mention the concert is outside? Well, it's all in the name of research on post colonial Caribbean culture. Sometimes, you just have to make sacrifices.

I can't believe there's not a single neutral in this outfit, although my friend C. told me that yellow can be a neutral. My hair is a neutral, I suppose.

I hope that you have a lovely and productive (and cool) Thursday!


  1. You look fantastically summery, and perfectly dressed for a hot summer concert!

  2. That shirt dress looks really comfortable. I don't consider yellow to be a neutral, but that might be because I wear it infrequently.

  3. You look fantastic! I hope the concert was a good time and that Blokey got some good research done!

    I've never heard anyone call yellow a neutral, but I have to admit that I often treat purple as if it were a neutral.

  4. You look great. The dress is not too short, it is a little longer than the shorts you had on yesterday, besides, you have the legs to pull it off.
    I hope the research went well.

    ps. no more aftershocks..

  5. Super cute! Hopefully you had a fun time and didn't melt :)

  6. Dresses are so much cooler than pants or shorts. This one's sweet and sassy!

  7. That's an adorable shirt dress and I love the blue/yellow/purple plaid.
    Definitely a good choice for this heat!
