Hello and welcome!
There are already so many fall fashion posts going on in blog land, but in my
corner of the world we're still in full summer mode, summer flowers are in
full bloom, butterflies everywhere thanks to a patch of Zinnias I sowed in the spring and then of course my purple butterfly bush I planted last summer. So you will definitely still find me in summer clothes and all the pieces in today's outfit post I've reached for often this summer. Although I do usually throw a cardigan over an outfit when inside (because I'm always cold when the AC is running)!
I've really impressed myself this summer and haven't bought any new clothes
(since March) but everything I'm wearing today was new from last summer (purchased on sale), and if
you know me then you will know that I prefer to buy things that will last me
several seasons. I do tend to look for classic pieces (vs. trendy). And if you
ask me then I'd have to say olive shorts and navy tops never go out of style!

I'm sorry these pictures didn't show up better, we had hoped to get them taken
at Golden Hour, right after we went out for dinner, but we underestimated time and the sun was already too low, so unfortunately my pictures didn't turn
out as I had hoped. Didn't want to let them go to waste so I decided to share them
My daughter isn't a fan of pairing olive and navy, but I actually love
these colors together! What do you think?
As mentioned, everything was purchased last year, and I am sad to say that
they are no longer available.
The blouse is by
and I absolutely love it! Best of all, it's made of linen which (in my
opinion) is the best summer fabric. Not all linen is made of equal
quality, I have a few linen tops and I find this one of great quality.
While this exact top is sadly no longer available, Ann Taylor does have a
great summer sale
going on right now with an extra 40% off many pieces - including a few linen
tops. You can
take a look at their Sales section here
if you're interested. This was about the time of the year last year
when I picked up this linen top.
were another item I purchased last summer (from White House Black Market
also have these utility shorts in Taupe but the Olive is my favorite and I
reach for them about as much as I reach for my jean shorts. The material is so
soft and comfortable, unlike the traditional utility pants/shorts material.
That said, as you can tell, after a long day (which included about an hour of
a car ride), they do tend to wrinkle, but wash well and iron easily.
Once again, these are no longer available at retail, but as with the top,
may be available at some point at a second hand shop. As a note, they do run
big, so you may want to go down a size if you should find them and want to
My rose gold slides I had found locally at Marshall's
last August and they've
been my "go-to" sandals all summer long! Love the neutral color!
from Amazon looks similar,
although I think mine have a little more of a metallic sheen to them.
It's hard to tell, but a simple silver necklace with infinity charm (options
) fills in the neckline and I even remembered to add a couple of bracelets on this day :) As for a bag, I wanted something simple, and I thought this gray- ish minimalist bag was the perfect choice. I've had it for a few years so no direct link.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
