We’ve really only had a couple of hot days so far this summer, and I’m THRILLED. I’d much rather be cool than warm, and much rather be covered-up than exposed. Slightly sheer blouses like this one are perfect, since they offer the coverage I want but look lightweight and seasonal.
Also I might’ve buzzed half of my head. Moving slowly toward an asymmetric hairstyle – end goal is this or this. Or something else. We’ll have to see what my locks do once they’re a bit longer.
Scarves can be tricky in summer, but I love them so much I always try to wedge a few into my warm weather outfits. When it’s cool, I prefer that my scarves cover my entire neckline, but for this breezy outfit I eased up on that guideline.
And my skull-print obsession continues. Redbubble reached out to me about their Art in Motion campaign, which focuses on street style-inspired, independent artist-designed clothes and accessories, and I was excited to dig in and learn more. Earlier this year I bought this tee from Redbubble, and when the first size didn’t fit they let me keep it and sent me a new one for free. So I was already a fan of their customer service, and eager to poke around Art in Motion. The items in this new collection are stellar, and I couldn’t resist this soft blush scarf with a subtle skull print.
This thrifted skirt has been a summer favorite for years. I just love the unexpectedly light, bright colors in that tartan and the swishy silk construction. I wore it twice in recent weeks, keeping the same jewelry in both outfits and swapping tops, bags, and shoes. This first was worn on a recent muggy day of meetings and writing at home. And that top is navy, I SWEAR, just like the navy in the skirt.
This version was worn for a day in the boutique, and I’m sad to say that the sweater bit the dust afterward. I’ve had it for several years and always forget that it starts out tight and after several hours of wearing begins to sag oddly. Especially in the sleeves, which were at least double in circumference by day’s end. So strange.
