Happy Wednesday!  I hope you’re all having a good week so far.  Today’s look is seriously so comfortable I could sleep in it (well, minus the heels).  While I was browsing Loft the other day looking for summer dresses, I spotted this perfect striped sleeveless tee from across the room, and practically ran to the table to check it out. I love a classic stripe – a black and white striped top can be paired with just about anything.  Wear it casually with jeans or shorts,  or dress it up with a blazer or leather skirt.  Any time I spot a striped top in a soft fabric, I snatch it up.  I love the soft, breathable fabric of this top for the summer; but I also think it will carry well into the fall season when layered.  Second, these jeans….they’re like wearing pajamas.  I used to own over 50 pairs of jeans because they were all I ever wanted to wear.  As I got older, I strayed from wearing jeans so often and found myself opting for skirts or dresses since they were easy to throw on and super comfortable.  Over the last year or so, I’ve slowly gotten back into jeans, but I’m definitely picky when it comes to the fabric.  I prefer fabrics that are either somewhat stretchy, or that have a broken-in feel.  These jeans are so soft and truly feel like I’ve owned them for years with their well-worn texture.  These two pieces have quickly become favorites of mine this summer!

I have found this to be the perfect lightweight black dress for summer.  I’ve worn it to work with these flats, as well as running errands and having lunch on the weekend with these sandals, but it can also be easily dressed up with a fun pair of heeled sandals or a fun pair of statement earrings like these.  The henley style top keeps the dress casual while the fabric allows it to transform into a dressy LBD.  I love how this dress drapes and is so soft to the touch, making it easy to slip on and go as it’s an outfit in itself.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Thank you so much for reading :)

This past weekend I was visiting one of my favorite people in Philadelphia :)  Every time I’ve visited, we’d talk about going to Longwood Gardens because he knew I’d love walking around and taking pictures of all the beauty.  After a few failed attempts due to weather, or making sleep a priority (because Longwood Gardens can be a day-long experience), we were finally successful in visiting!  Unfortunately, it was 97 degrees out, and within five minutes we were both sweating and wondering how long we’d survive.  We only made it through about a third of the gardens but hopefully I’ll be able to go back again the next time I’m in Philly and I can finish my explorations!  If you’re ever in the area, it’s definitely worth the drive away from the city.  I wanted to share a few of the snaps I was able to get while we were there.  I hope you enjoy them!

Hey everyone!  I’m soaking in this summer weather that’s finally arrived, and will probably disappear just as quickly :(  So, I broke out my favorite printed shorts from Zara’s spring/summer sale and paired them with these fun tangerine sandals.  To complement the pop of retro orange,  I added these violet aviators since I kept my bag simple.  Generally this is how I wear color; little punches here and there.  I find that my wardrobe stretches further when I buy a lot of neutrals and then add color through accessories.  This allows me to wear pieces more frequently as well as all year long – styling them in various ways.

Thank you so much for stopping by :)
