"Hmmm," you may be thinking to yourself, "Self, doesn't Bustle live in Houston? And isn't it JULY?"
Indeed. All the clues are there. I'm wearing my cute summer daisy pants from Old Navy (these are awfully close, and they are on sale!) And I've got my $5 rose gold flip flops from Rack Room Shoes - why are these the most comfortable? And why didn't I buy two more pairs?
