Neutral T-Shirt Dress

In the heat of summer, I can barely stand to wear anything but light, flowy dresses. Jeans are out of the question, and I need something that won’t cling to me in the humidity. I went on a huge Forever21 binge a few weeks ago, and included in my loot was this amazingly comfortable t-shirt dress. It is light, breezy, and has an open back – three things I can not resist. I love the color (I was feeling inspired by Kim K’s neutral palette these days) – its easy to pair with anything & everything.

This dress is perfect for summer, I’m finding myself tempted to repeat my habit of buying things I love in multiple colors….

Kimonos are a Thing

Kimonos always make me think of my grandmother. She had a few that she would rock on the regular – around the house, out to dinner, etc – and she always looked chic as hell. I admire my Nanny for so many reasons, and I can’t help but to emulate her in most aspects of my life.

So, a few weeks ago I was in my local Forever21 and I came across a whole rack of kimonos (jackets, cover-ups, whatever you want to call them) and I knew I had to have one. It is the perfect addition to a summer outfit. The fabric is light enough that I’m not dying in the D.C. humidity while still feeling covered up, especially at work. Sweaters are too much for the summer, but sometimes I don’t want to wear just a tank top and shorts. BAM – Kimono! Problem solved. It also serves as the perfect beach cover up – not too heavy, but still provides the coverage I want.

It is my firm belief that everyone should own a kimono. This one cost me $15 and I plan on wearing it all summer, and even into fall. Do it. Make your dreams come true. Just do it.

1970 Something…

I love 1970’s fashion: high-waisted, bell bottom jeans, beads & bracelets everywhere, long hair and center parts. Peace, love, happiness.

I found these jeans about a year ago when the Blues Jean Bar came to Bishop, and the second I put them on I knew they had to be mine. They are a very welcome break from my skinny jeans, and they somehow make every outfit look 10x better, in my opinion. Magic jeans….where have we heard that before?

I’m also in love with this off the shoulder top – I’ve worn it almost every weekend since I found it on ASOS. Perfect for summer with shorts, and could even go into fall with longer pants or a skirt.

I had been looking for a bracelet like this for so long and I finally found one at the LuLu’s right around the corner from my apartment. Its the perfect accent piece for any summer outfit.
