Hello, friends! So I totally realize that in many parts of the country (and the world), it has already started to get chillier and people have been experiencing everything from drizzle to downright downpours (hang in there, Boulder, CO!), but it is still hot here in Southern California. Like, HOT! Luckily, the forecast promises that it will cool down a little this week (below 80 degrees – hurray!), but yesterday was still blazing, so this is what I wore to keep cool:
I am wearing a ditsy print peasant top (Mossimo, old) with a pair of brick red colored denim shorts (American Eagle) and my favorite copy-cat-Ked tennis shoes (Payless). I kept my accessories simple with a pair of mint sunnies (Tilly’s) and a couple handmade bracelets.
While yesterday wasn’t the hottest day of summer on record, it was pretty humid and gross and I spent most of the morning helping my mom clean the house and backyard for another family gathering (a big family means a lot of birthday parties – woo hoo!). I didn’t even want to put on a ton of makeup because I knew it would drip right off in a matter of minutes; so, I kept my look casual and played up the red, blue and yellow of the top with red shorts and blue shoes.
Speaking of which, this blouse is super old (I’m pretty sure I’ve had it since high school), but it’s clearly one of my favorites. With the white linen yoke, silver buttons, tie waist and fun, vintage-like floral print, it’s feminine, fun and totally me.
I cannot wait for the weather to start getting chilly so I can pull out all of my fall and winter favorites, including a few new pieces I picked up this weekend. Sadly, I have to keep reminding myself that I live in California and the chances of gray, rainy weather any time soon are slim to none; but, in the meantime, I get to be creative with what I’ve got!
I hope you have a fabulous week, thanks for reading :), Kristi
