peaches ‘n cream

I’m really into stripes again lately and just want to fill my closet with all different types of striped shirts.  Silk, cotton, blue, black, etc.  There’s so many gorgeous plays on stripes and my eyes keep straying to them!  I recently purchased this silk top from Maison Scotch and I really love the subtle peaches ‘n cream color that makes it so easy to wear with anything.  Of course I chose my preferred black but the options are endless.  I haven’t entered the white bottoms territory yet because I still have a trauma from the golden high school years but I can totally see these going great with some white trousers or jeans.

Have I mentioned how happy I am that the heat wave is over and I can finally wear boots again?  I was limited to ankle boots over the blazing hot summer but now I can enter the knee high and the thigh high lengths again.  The boots I’m wearing right now were designed by my beloved sister and I love the flour de lis detail on it!

Oh how I hate Indian summer.  Always the hottest heat wave and always comes back with a vengeance just when you think the worst is over.  Stepped out the house for some pleasant shopping and ended up melting in the heat and cursing myself for not wearing a lighter top.

Slowly transitioning to fall by incorporating boots more frequently into my outfits and gearing towards longer lengths.  This outfit is screaming summer on top and fall on the bottom but I must point out that my top is still transitioning as well.  Because if you take a closer look, it’s a KNIT top!  I’ve always been such a sucker for knit tanks and vests, and Brandy Melville makes such great affordable ones.

By the way, I recently got this leopard bucket bag from Elizabeth & James, and I think I will be wearing it nonstop from now to forever.  I am dead serious!  If you get super sick of seeing me clutching onto it in every future blog post, feel free to intervene. 🙂

summer vibes

When it comes to summer styles, I think there is nothing more fitting than adding a little boho twist to your usual staples.  In my case, a little embroidery goes a long way in achieving that slightly western vibe.

public lounging
