One Trip Around the Sun

 

Well the sun is surely sinking down
But the moon is slowly rising
And this old world must still be spinning ’round
And I still love you

I cannot believe it’s been a full year without you.

 Still seeking your hand to hold.

Wrap skirt / Top / Bag / Sandals

A few weeks ago, I went to the store opening celebration for Hello Caroline on Newbury Street. This boutique, while small, packs a stylish punch. It’s filled with on-trend pieces that are remarkably affordable. There are also shoes, accessories, and a selection of home goods. Good luck wandering in and leaving empty-handed.

I grabbed this lovely wrap skirt while at the opening. I think it’ll be a great transition piece as we move into fall. For the hot weather, I paired it with a tank top and sandals, but I think it’ll work well with a sweater and booties as temps dip.

The skirt gets a ton of movement when you walk, which is fun and a little/lot scandalous if you’re not paying attention.

Dress / Bag / Sandals

A few weeks ago, I freaked out about how summer was basically almost over. But, um… newsflash to myself. August is still summer. 

It’s been crazy hot, and I’m loving it. However, it makes wanting to get dressed a little more difficult. For days that are too hot to care what you’re wearing, but you still have to go to work and be seen by colleagues and therefore must wear something other than cutoffs, I turn to dresses.

This sleeveless shirt dress is perfect for a hot day. No need to exert yourself thinking about a  top and a bottom! It also has a looser cut, so it’s not sticking to your body.

Leather slides round out this ultra easy and super simple outfit for days when your brain is melting.
