HOLY MOLY GUACAMOLE
More like hummus but that doesn’t rhyme
This summer is a hot one (and I’m not just talking about the boys I saw on the beach last week). I have been doing anything and everything to beat the heat this summer, which includes adding a few light + airy linen T’s to my closet. This Cynthia Rowely white button down adds a little bit of haute class to a casual look. A collared neck + hide away buttons is a match made in heaven for skirts, over + under dresses, or just your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans.
Even though I was lucky enough to find myself staying cool next to the AC for this shoot, that wasn’t the case allllllllll day loooonnnngggg.
Hot weather + humanity = SWEAT + UNHAPPY HAIR
Thankfully I paired this U N R E A L Gucci scarf with my outfit as an impromptu hair tie which totally rocked this outfit. There are endless ways you can toss a skinny scarf in, whether you are a total mess or just being lazy, somehow a pretty skinny scarf can wash away the “i don’t feel like it” vibe.
Last but not least, please don’t kill me for mixing patterns, but these Steve Madden velvet slides are to DIE for. Okay I might be exaggerating I wouldn’t die for them, but I may just give up my first born child because these baby’s are cooooomfy. At first I was skeptical of the style, mostly because they remind me of something a teacher would wear daily when I was in 4th grade, BUT the tables have turned. Maybe I have matured and decided I need to look like my teacher did (??? I don’t think so) or maybe just maybe these kicks are the new big things. They are trendy, comfortable and CHEAP. These range from $16-$50 and can be found in SOOO many colors, leathers, and patterns it is ridiculous. I think just wandering through a TJ Maxx you can find at least 6 pairs of these for super low costs.
Now just because I felt I had to tie the whole outfit together (aka make my shoes match my skinny scarf) I decided a white face + nude band watch combo was the best option. I paired this with a few silver rings + my two new Tiffany favorites (necklace + bracelet) I received for my birthday from my sister + boyfriend. Thankfully I spotted a little pop of pink in these sandals which gave me the perfect excuse to break out this B E A U T I F U L baby pink MK saffiano leather wallet (yes once again I am mixing metals, don’t kill me whats a girl to do).
All in all summer has been a breeze (minus the actual breeze) and it will only be a few more weeks till fall thanks to the good ole midwest. I am ever thankful for the heat as an excuse to wear my bare face that much more. Stay tuned for my next post on how dewy skin is the best go to this summer, but until then. . .
