I’m bracing for a swelteringly hot September. Seriously. It was in the low 70s and even some 60s much of last week, and although I was delighted to be able to dress accordingly, there’s GOT to be some hot weather in store for us eventually. I mean, right?
I haven’t found tons of wordy graphic tees that appeal to me – I even made my own – but this Redbubble ampersand tee is right up my alley. I don’t qualify as a font nerd by any stretch, but I do love the look of elegant typography. Plus in a world full of polarized either/ors, I like embracing the ands.
Every time I put on gold-toned jewelry I chuckle a little to myself. I was adamantly against anything gold for YEARS, and couldn’t even bring myself to buy shoes or bags with gold-toned hardware. Times have changed, and so have my weird self-imposed rules. I’m still not a huge fan of shiny gold, but I’ve come to love the look of antiqued brass. And it’s such a subtly warming touch for black outfits.
Let me tell you, friends, this jersey knit fringe skirt is super fun to wear. The asymmetric fringe swishes furiously when I walk and does a decent amount of ankle-tickling in the process. I’m hoping it’ll work with boots and sweaters in the fall, too, though all ankle-tickling properties will be lost then.
I’ve been tinkering around with sheer tops and dark bras, trying to find the perfect combo. This top isn’t quite opaque but doesn’t qualify as sheer either, so I might try it with a nude bra instead and see how that looks. This is more of what I’m envisioning, but haven’t found the perfect blouse/bra combo quite yet.
