a mid-summer check-in
Hello. Faith suggested I blog today's outfit, so I thought, why not do a mid-summer check-in?
I didn't know that I was going to take the summer off from blogging, but that seems to be what has happened. I've been wearing summery clothes--lots of maxis, jean shorts and dresses, mostly. This outfit is kind of a departure with the skirt. I find skirts hard to style for the most part, but when I slipped this top on with my bright orange skirt I really liked the combination of pattern and color.
I do have a thought to share with you. These Gap sandals have turned out to be a great flip-flop alternative. I love flip-flops and have a bunch of them, but they do make an outfit pretty casual, don't you think? I've found these sandals to be just as easy and comfy as flip-flops but so much dressier feeling. The outfit feels more pulled together.
skirt: J. Crew (last year)
top: Lucky Brand
bracelet: souvenir from Maine, 3 years ago
Just disregard that hair tie around my wrist. A bad summer habit I've picked up!
