By this point in the summer you’re probably being inundated with fall looks, but I’m keeping it real and dressing for the current season. I grabbed this colorful romper while shopping the other day and wanted to wear it in a summer-y way so I paired it with this straw bag and these slides.
Summer isn’t really winding down around here… our hottest months are usually September and October. Even though we still have awhile before we’ll be breaking out the boots and jackets, I wanted to end the week by sharing some of my favorite summer finds. These are by no means limited to warm weather, just the little things I’ve been loving this season.
This isn’t the first time I lusted after star sandals. A few years ago I first came across this pair of Loeffler Randall sandals and was smitten. I loved the star details and ankle wraps, but couldn’t justify the price at the time. The following year I bought a star and tassel pair somewhat impulsively from a Shopbop sale, but admittedly I haven’t gotten much use from them. Unlike the gold star pair, they’re multi-colored and LOUD (seen here). This year I was wanting a more versatile pair and I found several to share at every price point!
My favorite thing to wear when it’s hot outside is a pair of denim shorts. They’re so versatile and I live in them all summer long. It’s been pretty warm lately and I’ve loved bringing them back out. The weekend before I had Crosby we had a major heat wave and I was so upset none of my shorts fit me. Since I wasn’t noticeably pregnant in the summer I didn’t have to invest in any maternity shorts. But after I had her I was so excited to get back into them and haven’t really wanted to take them off since!
I’ve had this velvet cami sitting in my closet for way too long without wearing it so the other morning I decided to get creative and layer it over this lace top. I love the way their textures play off each other! I added my favorite cozy cardigan for warmth and called it a day.
