Whiteout

Blue skies, wispy white clouds, a 7pm sun accompanied by an airy linen dress. Ideal summer moments. But, I won’t romanticize it too much, the heat isn’t all that glamorous, especially in the midwest (hello 85% humidity). I do have to say, although I feel like I’m melting most of the time, I love how alive the world is in the summer, it’s everything I dream of in the thick of winter.

It’s been a while since I shared an outfit post, and it’s crazy to look back and see where my style began. Especially looking back at my first blog, when I primarily focused on fashion. I want to cringe, but then, I appreciate those moments of interesting fashion choices made and how they reflect my life at the time and where it’s lead my style to now. I’ve seen nearly every phase (preppy, sporty, grunge, feminine… you name it) and I think that’s been the best process of discovery to find what I love now. All of that to say, what I choose to wear will always be evolving as I do.

I’m wearing a few of my favorite summer pieces: a linen dress from Urban, sandals and earrings from Madewell, necklaces from GLDN, and a gold foil purse from my mom’s closet (she’s had it since she was 25!).

I’ve been enjoying the simplicity of summertime essentials, and have had all of them on a steady rotation since the weather warmed up. What are summer staples?
