WIW: 4 wheeling in a skirt

I wore my tube skirt today.  I wonder if I'll wear anything else very soon - it's that great.  (Actually, tomorrow is scheduled to be hotter than today, which had a heat index of 118, so I'll be wearing my summer sack dress tomorrow....)

Anyway, I paired it with white, since I figure my days that I have a bit of a tan are numbered, and with silver sandals.  I intended my lips to be darker than they showed up here - I think I'll go shopping for a deeper toned lipstick (this is Burt's Bees "Fig" - I want something light weight feeling, but deeper in tone - recommendations?).  

And my husband revealed the new surprise he's been hiding the past few weeks.  A 4-wheeler that was free (using logic similar to what we call girl math).  He bought two sorta-running ones, assembled one that worked  mostly properly from the parts, and sold off enough extra parts to pay for the acquisition of them in the first place.

I don't recommend tube skirts as ideal 4-wheeling wear.

AS always comments, suggestions and recommendations more than welcome!

    That is an adorable picture of you and hubs!  Frame it!

    You look cool and comfy and current.

    I recommend the Revlon Lip Butters. They are quite pigmented but feel creamy and moisturizing like a lip balm.

    HAHAHAHA! You're quite fab! :) I love four wheeling! Don't forget a helmet!

  • Jeanie replied 7 years ago

    You look stunning!  Hubs needs to 4-wheel you to dinner in that outfit!

    You look really good in white! i think you should wear it more often. Lippy wise if you want to spoil yourself you could try  one of YSL sheer lipsticks. they are very nice and moisturising and if you get a dark shade because they are sheer they never look heavy or fake. You don't end up with the bit in the middle missing look either.

    Get a helmet! Not used. Nice look

    Yowzer - 11/10 for this outfit - the tube skirt looks great with that top and the sandals - even makes your runners look good on the 4 wheeler.

    Love love love it! YLF both, and the 4 wheeler, too:-)

    Great outfit! And fun with the ATV! Do get helmets!

  • amiable replied 7 years ago

    Yes - Thanks all!  

    We have motorcycle helmets, which I think will be the right choice for this vehicle too.  I just didn't think to wear them (we just puttered around my in-laws' yard so far).  I'll  definitely get them out next time!

    One of your best! I like the hemline of your pullover with the slim skirt.

  • shevia replied 7 years ago

    Love your outfit and DH's "boy math"!

  • texstyle replied 7 years ago

    This is such a great outfit on you - maybe a new favorite!  Love the extra photo of you and DH too.

  • Janet replied 7 years ago

    That looks fun! I love the outfit. I've been surprised by how much I'm enjoying my striped tube skirt -- enough that I decided to keep the solid black one I was thinking of returning.

    First of all, you are rockin' the tube skirt. Love it.

    Second of all, YES to four-wheeling. Are you a Midwestern girl? That's pretty much how I learned to drive, lol. Still love doing that when I'm at my parents' farm.

  • amiable replied 7 years ago

    Lol Stacey - Yes - I live in Nebraska!  :)

    Ami, this outfit is just hot.

    I'm laughing just a little, because it's like your hubby is saying, "my new 4-wheeler gets me the hot babes."

  • Beth Ann replied 7 years ago

    Very resourceful DH.  He proves the maxim, "Where there's a will, there's a way."  You look amazing in your tube skirt, and the proportions of the top are great with it, and the color is perfect for making the most of the Summer glow!

    Lots of good 'ol Heartland resourceful in these pics!

  • Ajoanna replied 7 years ago

    Amiable, I'm coming out of lurkdom to say that this is an absolutely fantastic outfit, and I am quite jealous of both your delightful shirt/skirt combo and your new 4 wheeler.

  • amiable replied 7 years ago

    Rachy - I was hot - it was 104 outside!

    And thanks you all!  You're so kind!  I love this skirt!

  • Vickie KY replied 7 years ago

    I didn't know Nebraska got that Hot!  You look so cute in your outfit. Good picture of you and hubby.

  • amiable replied 7 years ago

    Vicky, it doesn't get this hot here but a few days a year.  (And it's a good thing - I don't know how you fabbers in hot-humid climates survive!)  Yesterday's forecast for today said to expect a 118F heat index.  But it doesn't look like it'll actually hit that.
