Hat Attack

H&M Hat, Old Navy Top, Gap Boyfriend Denim, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Ray Ban Sunnies, Winners Cuff, Gorjana Wrap Bracelet, Michael Kors Watch, Zara Pumps

I did it again. I sneaked a fall item into my wardrobe - I just couldn't wait to wear this hat! Last fall, I found myself a gorgeous wool black hat from Target, and wore it a ton. I figured a tan wool hat would fit right into my closet. Is anyone else having a hard time resisting all these gorgeous fall items popping up? Now that I have a wedding to save for, I'm definitely going to have to be selective on what fall items I want to include in my closet this year! What's on your fall wishlist?

Hint of Fall

Asos Striped Top, Walter Baker W118 Skirt, Marais Pumps, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Ray-Ban Sunnies, Vintage Earrings, H&M Bracelet, Michael Kors Watch

Thought I'd add a nod to fall with these burgundy shoes - I bought them in the Spring last year and cannot wait to break them out for fall. Super comfortable and the suede finish is gorgeous!

Things have been busy busy lately, so my apologies for the radio silence on this end!

Little Black Dress

Forever 21 Dress, Necklace and Cuff, Aldo Shoes, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Ray-Ban Sunnies

Weirdly enough, as many dresses as I have in my closet, I did not own a casual black shift dress. Most of my black dresses are either too formal, or a bit too tight to be worn casually. So when I received this Forever 21 dress in the mail last week, I was really excited to have an easy, casual black dress to put on for the days where I don't know what to wear! Wish I had found this gem at the beginning of the summer!

Weekend Hair

Asos Top, AG Jeans, BCBG Max Azria Sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Ray-Ban Sunnies, Gorjana Ring, Winners Bangle

Ah yes, weekend hair. Because my hair is so thick and difficult to style, I often let my hair air dry on the odd weekend where I don't have to be anywhere. And I love it! My hair is naturally wavy so I usually add a styling cream and voila! Granted, it's not my favorite hairstyle on myself, but I feel like I can kind of pull it off in the summer by claiming it's "beach hair"!

Casual Vibes

Old Navy Top, J Crew Skirt, Franco Sarto Sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Winners Cuff, Michael Kors Watch, D&G Sunnies, Mavi Denim Jacket

Good morning friends!

I'm home sick today with a weird cold/headache that has been dragging on for weeks. The last few weeks of summer really isn't the time to feel sick - I'd like to enjoy the weather as much as I can please and thanks!

I put this look together in the morning and didn't think much of it. It was one of those, you know, meh days, where whatever you wear just didn't work. Looking back on the pictures now though, I actually love this look. It's comfy and casual, yet the palette of beiges and nude pull the look together. And how cute is that Old Navy top (the second part of my winnings from Melanie's giveaway)? I kept envisioning wearing it with skinny jeans, but I love how it looks with a skirt!

The Pixie Pant

Asos Top, Old Navy Pixie Pants, Smart Set Necklace and Bangle, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, D&G Sunnies, Vintage Earrings, Zara Pumps

Last season, when the Old Navy Pixie pants were all the rage, I waited and waited for my size to pop up on the Old Navy website. It never did, obvs, because I didn't own any Pixie pants until now! A few weeks ago, armed with the gift certificate I won from a giveaway Melanie from Born Lippy hosted (thank you!!), I visited the Old Navy in my hometown and saw a fresh new display of Pixie pants, with my size in stock! It didn't take me long to settle for this black patterned pair. Truthfully, it was a bit warm to wear them that day, but I just couldn't wait!

Also, new shoes! I snagged these beauties from the Zara sale for $25! It seriously pays to wait for that elusive sale doesn't it?

Vero Moda Tank c/o Envy, J Crew Skirt, Smart Set Necklace, Aldo Pumps, Ray-Ban Sunnies, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Gorjana Wrap Bracelet, Michael Kors Watch

I look pretty happy in these pictures, so in combination with the fun red color I'm wearing, I thought I'd title the post "cheerful"! But really, how bright and fun is the color of this skirt? I've already planned its transition into fall with tights and a cozy cream sweater. I know I shouldn't be talking too much about the fall, but has this summer ever gone fast - we're already August! I plan to enjoy every bit of sunshine and warmth left!
