summer ensemble

sandals  & other stories

I am squeezing the last bits out of summer. For me this includes cotton tent dresses, straw tote bags, dinner dates outside, bare legs, millinery flowers pinned to everything, and a cloud of sunscreen wherever I go. Philadelphia has been wonderfully mild this summer in terms of humidity, a light breeze always present, and I will be sad when it ends. Until then I will be busting out all of my greatest summer hits, including this 1960's dress I found at Stella Dallas in Brooklyn (the label is Beach Party, so good). I don't recall where I found the funny straw tote, but it's already falling apart a little bit so this may be its last hurrah. I'm not sure why but I've been obsessed with round bags lately.

animal prints & cute friends

top  zara
skirt  vintage from millay vintage
bag  vintage
shoes  asos

The adorable Julie took these photos of me (most of which were outtakes of me cracking up and making ridiculous faces, as usual) right before we met up with the equally adorable Mary for a bit of wine drinking and catching up. I convinced them to take a few group shots on the street beforehand, much to the "delight" of passersby. This funny animal print vest is a sort-of-newly-acquired vintage piece that has a matching little dress. I've been collecting a lot of these long vests recently because they're the ideal layering piece to wear to work and stick all of my styling clips on.

mustard suede

purse  vintage
shoes  vintage from mousetrap vintage

It's still August, but a girl can still bust out some mustard suede if she wants to. This little dream dress is from ASOS, which I must say has some mighty fine suede pieces right now. I've had the lace blouse for years now, something I picked up at a flea market back on the west coast.  All together it's getting me excited for Fall and being able to bring out my favorite autumnal duds in full force.

shoes  j. crew (old)

This isn't the first time I've channeled Mrs. Roper in a shapeless, colorful sack of a dress, and it certainly won't be the last. This Mr. Larkin dress is hands down the most comfortable thing in my wardrobe right now, and the ideal dress for when I'm on set styling at work because I can move freely about. The best part about this outfit is that I got some major shade from a (snooty) old lady that happened to walk by me and was heard muttering to her husband "The things women wear outside these days." Ha! Thanks for making me feel like a bit of fashion rebel, old lady. I'll take it.
