On Thursday, the wind threatened to ruin my outfit photos, but I ended up using it to my advantage. Take that, weather!
It responded by sending yet another heat wave my way :( I am hiding inside today again, wishing again and again that I had air conditioning. If I sound sluggish today, it's because it's too hot to think.
So in these photos, I'm showing off more haul from that little expedition to those thrift-stores from the other day, including this amazing pleated lemon-print skirt! This was such a ridiculously good find. My blouse and belt were also thrifted on the same day! I love successful op-shopping days!
And because I'm wearing my floral collar clips and boater in these photos, I wanted to show off this illustration Impromptu did for me for her blogger series project, wearing much the same things! How amazing is it?
I am constantly blown away by the fact that people around the world, who I have never met, ask to draw me. It's one of the perks of blogging that were both totally unexpected and that I will never tire of!
Anyway, as for what's in my outfit...
blouse, belt & skirt - Vintage
collar clips - The Little Pineneedle shop
necklace - c/o Sheinside
hat - c/o Wholesale
I wanted to share a quick but mind-blowing science fact today, that I became interested in after reading this "What If?" question.
Half a billion years ago, a day only lasted 22 hours and a year had 397 days.
It's so strange to think that something that seems so "set in stone" as the length of days and years can vary like that, even on Earth!
Futhermore, the Earth's rotation is slowing as we move through time... so our days are actually getting longer. In fact, atomic clocks show that our days are 1.7 milliseconds longer than they were 100 years ago.

p.s. This is why my blog post has the title it has.
