What I Wore: Beat the Heat

what I wore: pants – old navy, heels – FRH via tj maxx (see here), blouse & necklace- vintage, bracelet – a gift

When the temperature is over 100 there’s really not much I want to wear. I want to be a cool as possible. The best way I’ve found to do that is a) not get dressed or b) wear white. Since not getting dressed for work is typically frowned upon, white was the answer.

What I Wore: White Heat

what I wore: dress – pinwheels via grey dog, earrings – cheap thrills, bracelet – mae’s, heels – forever21, lips – covergirl lip perfection in hot over covergirl outlast longwear in everreddy (I never have to reapply)

I have really positive feelings associated with this dress. I picked it out especially for our engagement pictures. Then wore it to a party and when we toured the Amalfi coast on our honeymoon. So, it always makes me happy to wear it. It doesn’t hurt that it’s super comfortable.

What I Wore: Blue Jean Baby

what I wore: jeans – levi via grey dog, blouse – vintage, heels – bcbg, bracelet – mae’s, earrings – mom’s

I found these amazing vintage levi’s last week at Grey Dog. I’m so excited about them because they’re the perfect length and rise. Also picked up the gorgeous silver bracelet at Mae’s – a local favorite.

What I Wore: Black & Blue

what I wore: blouse – ann chabrol, skirt – freeway, heels – gianni bini, earrings – mom’s

These are my “game of thrones” earrings. They look like little pirate swords and I plucked them from obscurity in my mom’s closet the other day. I’ve always been crazy about my mom’s jewels and have been lifting them from her for close to 16 years. Every time I look through her jewelry I find something I haven’t seen before – something I want… Luckily, she lets me borrow and borrows from me.

What I Wore: Red & Gold (+ enchiladas)

what I wore: skirt – esque, belt/blouse – vintage via cheap thrills, earrings – charm & chain, ring/bangle – mom’s, bangle – house of harlow, sandals – lovely people, necklaces – vintage via mae’s

Sometimes an outfit centers around earrings or shoes or any accessory. This one centered around this amazing belt.
Also I made chicken enchiladas last night and they were super easy and very yummy. I used this recipe and added black beans, salsa & cilantro.

What I Wore: In Black & White

what I wore: dress – max & cleo (old), heels – report signature, bag – vieta, sunnies – asos, earrings – vintage via mae’s

I’ve had this dress for at least 5 years and I couldn’t believe it when I couldn’t find a previous instance where I posted about it. It’s a really versatile and fun dress that I’ve worn to weddings & work alike.
