Do you have that one item in your closet that you tend to wear too much? Whether it is the little black dress, the worn in heels, or go to blazer, you just can’t help but want to grab it everyday? Yup. That’s me and chambray. You’ve seen my previous posts on chambray here and here. Well here it is again. If you don’t own one yet, I suggest buying one. They are affordable and can be worn with pretty much anything.
I am all about the prints and patterns these days. While I should probably add more basic items to my closet, I can’t help but veer off course when I see a fun print. I wore these pants last time for a more business look, but decided to make it casual today with black flats and accessories.
A black maxi dress is my go to for this Summer. When the temps reach high 80s, like this past weekend, you want nothing more than an easy, breezy outfit that you won’t have to fuss over all day. This dress is not only that, but perfect length for my petite frame (I’m 5’4 and it barely skims the floor). This past weekend I tied the corner in a knot and threw on a tank top over it for a different look.
What’s your go to summer dress?
I love finding versatile pieces, like this skirt. This casual pencil skirt is great for the Summer weekends, but also professional enough for work. Fortunately, I work at a place where the culture is very casual and doesn’t require you to wear slacks or suits everyday. While I would wear this skirt to work, I would never wear this tank top because it’s beyond casual for the office. However, it was the perfect opportunity to mix patterns last weekend in the city.
Happy Tuesday! I wore this laid back look on Sunday for running errands around town. The weather here in the Bay Area has been temperamental. Last week we were having a heat wave, while the past few days we’ve had warnings for rain showers. This light sweater and scarf made the perfect combo for the indecisive weather.
(On a side note, I’ve been feeling the urge to change my hair style. I’m thinking something along the lines of here, here, and here. The question is do I go lighter or darker. What do you think I should do?)
