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.

A few of you have asked how I planned to take badassery into the summer season, and for the most part I’d say jewelry has been my secret weapon. But a few of my looks have lapsed back into my summer default of quasi-cowgirl, including this one. This Gudrun Sjödén dress is floaty and sweet on its own, but grounded by a chunky necklace, denim jacket, and weathered leather accessories, its vibe shifts.

Before I switched up my style aesthetic, most of the prints and patterns in my wardrobe were pretty vibrant and often a little retro, which means that most of them have been handed down, sold, or donated over the past few months. But I realized I was missing the movement and interest added by prints, so I picked up this top which is both neutral and cut with a curved hem, one of my favorite design elements. It’s reminiscent of animal print, but nothing I’ve ever seen on an actual critter. So it’s interesting, flattering … and somewhat mysterious.
