I’ve been wearing this particular outfit (or a version of it) as often as humanly possible. I’m not even kidding, either. See here, here, here, and probably Saturday. A black camisole + vintage Levi’s 501 shorts. Simple but so, so comfortable, especially in this hot summer-ness that we’re experiencing. I wore it on our Brooklyn day in New York. I wore it on our vacation in Lake Chelan, Washington. I’m wearing it right now, probably.

Zara camisole (old, similar here)
Vintage Levi’s 501s
Converse
Coach handbag

Here, here (or is it hear, hear?) to a summer uniform! I’ll be honest with you. Since that photo was taken in mid-May, I’ve switched footwear from Converse to these Birkenstocks. If a better shoe exists on this planet, I’d like to know, because Birks are literally the best things ever. If they’re wrong, I don’t want to be right. I swear, I’ve never met a more divisive shoe. People either hate them with every fiber of their soul and being OR they love them so much that it becomes their sole footwear and sometimes best friend. I’m definitely with the latter group. So a black camisole + Levi’s 501s + Birkenstocks. What’s your summer go-to?

ONLY WANT DAINTY THINGS, NECKLACES INCLUDED

dainty necklace2 ONLY WANT DAINTY THINGS, NECKLACES INCLUDED

I’ve been on a necklace kick recently and my philosophy on necklace-wearing is: the daintier, the better. I’ve never looked particularly good with chunky jewelry on and I’d rather it not make a huge statement, if we’re being honest, so dainty and delicate it is. I’m the same way with rings, too. Dainty all around!

Of course, that’s just me. Lately, I’m all about figuring out what’s ME. You know…WHO AM I? What works with my skin and hair and overall demeanor? What feels right? What looks best? Well, I think I’m a gal who appreciates a dainty gem or two.

CURRENTLY BUYING: STRIPES ONLY

striped shirts1 CURRENTLY BUYING: STRIPES ONLY

My wardrobe is experiencing a surge in stripes as of late and I’m not complaining for a second. When I’m online shopping, it’s like my eyes ONLY see stripes and I buy all of them. I kid you not, these are all purchases I’ve made within the past month or so. It’s becoming a problem. But they’re so classic and I can wear them forever and ever, right? That’s my line of thinking anyway. Also, tax returns and stuff.

Anyways, I’ve always been partial to stripes and tend to prefer the Breton or sailor variety. I’m also constantly trying to replicate this outfit at least once a week, if not more. In that stripe pile above are some of the new wardrobe additions (TAX RETURNS, I SAID). Oh but the Skargorn. You HAVE TO get the Skargorn. Also, it’s on sale right now + 20% off the sale price. Almost makes me wish I didn’t pay FULL PRICE FOR IT, SHOOT. Some of the stripes I recently bought, plus a few more that I still need:

I’M GOING TO CUT UP ALL MY JEANS

FAVORITES1 e1392783905855 IM GOING TO CUT UP ALL MY JEANS

I’ve been wanting to cut up a few of my jeans for awhile now but always back out at the last minute. IT’S SO PERMANENT and what if I decide that I don’t want jeans with gaping holes in them in a few months? Ya know, really tough life decisions and such.

But I finally took the plunge (with scissors?) on these Urban Outfitters jeans I found in store and on sale for $19. I cut up the knees and made sure to do it totally blind and without measuring because what good are grungy, holey jeans if they’re perfectly cut? I will keep you updated on how they look after a few washes aka more blog posts on this topic. STAY TUNED.

Also, I’ve been coveting these gals forever and there’s a whole lot of ripped knee inspo on my Pinterest boards, in case you’re keen on this style as well.

Unrelated: HOUSE OF CARDS, wow.
