Late Summer Casual








Head to Toe: (First outfit) Blouse, Marshall's; Jeans, Loft; Shades, Kenneth Cole via Marshall's; Bag, Flea Market; Flats, Vince Camuto via Marshall's. (Second outfit) Top,Hollister (hand-me-down); Scarf, American Eagle (Gift); Jeans, Thrifted; Shades, Thrifted; Flats, Vince Camuto via Marshall's; Bag, Flea Market.

This is one of my favorite looks of the moment (being that I rocked it every day this week), and I'm dubbing it "late summer casual." The formula? Skinny jeans, flats, a loose top, plus accessories. It's comfy and classic,  and cool enough for a warm day without showing much skin. Ah, August, you are fleeting...

On another note, one of my good friends and first college roomie, Sam, has put her creative talent to good use and launched an awesome DIY blog, DIY Huntress. I've just added her first two posts to my to-do list. Go check it out and start crafting!

  8. I love your plaid top - such a great summer print (and an under utilized one, I often feel).
