Shady Spots

From On July 28, 2011

Took some quick photos in one of those sheer button-ups from Express that I’ve been obsessed over. I’m wearing white if you weren’t sure. I tried to make it a quick photo session since the mosquitos were out in full force. I didn’t want to get attacked again. The khaki linen shorts I’ve had for a long time. They’re from Forever 21, believe it or not. I love the detailing on them. The buttoned beltloops, the front pleats, the tie and the faux cuff. Very cute.

I accessorized my neutrals with my new Elizabeth & James double ring (that I can’t get over), a random necklace I got at some point when I lived in California, oversized shades (for the non-shady spots) from Anthropologie, and how about my studded Prada’s?! Simply some of my favorite shoes.

Lakeside

From On July 21, 2011

It has been ridiculously hot lately. Baring skin and loose-fitting clothes just might be the only way to attempt to keep cool. This tunic I thought of giving away until recently. I got it years ago when I went to one of the MAGIC tradeshows in Vegas. Love the sheer dark navy and cream print, as well as the billowy sleeves. I chose to wear it with my Free People cut-offs and tied the bottom into a knot so you would acually be able to see them. Add my knotted ALDO heels and it’s a done deal.

Oh, and I’m trying out MAC’s lipstick in Snob. Pastel pink on my lips.

In Tiers

From On July 15, 2011

I completely forgot that I had this skirt! I got it years ago when full tiered skirts were all the rage. I had so many of them in different colors. It was ridiculous. I gave most of them away, but held onto this one because I loved the print. The teal green with white, purple, black and pink printed flowers gave it this vintage vibe. It actually sits on my hips, but I wore it highwaisted. I used my belt from the Gap to hold it up.

I originally wanted to wear this skirt with a white and neon pink striped tee. Too bad I don’t own one! So the black on black had to do. I can’t tell you how bad my legs were burning. I was outside for less than ten minutes and got about ten bug bites from the knees down. It was awful.

Lipstick: MAC’s Up The Amp (I love the purple-y hue!)

Breezy Tie-Dye

From On July 11, 2011

Finally wearing the vest that I stalked at J.Crew! I can’t wait to wear it with dark-wash skinny jeans for the Fall. I decided to wear it with this Michael Kors tie-dye maxi that I got a little while ago. It’s so lightweight making it perfect for warmer months. I wore the two with a basic ribbed white tank and a navy leather studded belt from The Levi’s Store.

Oh! Check out the earrings. I made them out of boredom one day. I love how they turned out. And if you didn’t notice already, I finally figured out how to make the photos larger!

Tall Fields

From On July 8, 2011

I kept it really simple with this look. I remember seeing this Missoni-like tunic in a BCBG Max Azria catalog. I knew I had to have it. It’s been over a year since I bought it though. But funny enough, I walked into a BCBG store the other day and there it was again AND for the full price. That’s one thing I hate about this brand. They’ll have something one year and bring it back the next. It kind of takes away from the clothing, if you ask me. I’m wearing it with my go-to ALDO sandals. I’ve had them for years and they go well with just about anything.

Enjoying another summer day with minimal jewelry, wavy locks and a cool breeze.
