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.

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?

I forgot to mention that I was going to Toronto for 7 days. I usually alert the masses any time I have a trip planned, but this one snuck up on me and before I knew it, I was 3 days deep into the trip and forgetting what a blog even was, etc. Life happens and don’t I know it. Anyway I’m back!
I would LIKE to say that a Toronto-centric blog post is coming, but I also said that a Lollapalooza post was coming and where the hellz is that one? Still on my iPhone, that’s where it is. So I might post one if my brain can kick it into high gear. In the meantime, check out all of our hard work from Toronto on InStyle.com: here, here, and here.
Anyway, this is a weekend outfit if I’ve ever seen a weekend outfit. I took a seemingly nice dress and messed it up with a flannel shirt, because you know what, it gets real cold in the grocery store and I’m definitely not wearing a full-on jacket now that we’re finally experiencing real summer weather. 80 degrees days, don’t I love you so. I have to bring something to keep me warm in grocery stores though, otherwise I’m shivering like Leo DiCaprio on that plank before he drowns as I’m walking from aisle to aisle.
Also, Kyle asked if my outfit was a nod to the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s In Utero album and you know what, I’m just going to pretend that it is to up my cool factor. I’ve been feeling old and out of touch lately so anything to up that cool factor is FINE BY ME.
You guys, I’m addicted to buying plants. Can’t stop, won’t stop = my plant-buying philosophy. I’m also addicted to online shopping and that’s a real issue, whereas plant-buying is totally okay to do. For example, this dress from ASOS is something I didn’t need at all, but it sure made me smile so I put it in my online cart and look how precious it is? I feel like I stepped into 1992. All I need are some black Converse, a scrunchy or two, and a choker necklace, which lucky for me, are all on their way thanks to another online shopping excursion (kidding! I’m so not ready for a choker necklace). But plants? Those are definite needs. THEY GIVE US OXYGEN, for goodness sake. They do, right? My last science class was like 10 years ago probably.
Just so you know, I air out all my issues here so I don’t have to pay for therapy. So thanks! Anyway, I wore this get-up to the Everlane party this weekend, which by the way, was a total blast. Great venue, great food, great people, great company. Here’s an instagram from it.
