sheer & sleeveless

It’s stressing me the hell out that stores are already having end-of-season sales and sending out e-mails with fall collection previews. This happens every year: it’s the Fourth of July, I blink my eyes, and then summer is over. We get it, Summer, you’re really fast—but no one likes a show off. Slow down with the rest of us. Please.

Because summer is nowhere near over in my book, today’s outfit is as seasonal as it gets. White strappy sandals, a sheer, sleeveless blouse and white dress shorts.

I would wear sheer tops every day if I could (but I work in an office and that would be…weird), and when I spotted this blouse at Buffalo Exchange, it wasn’t even a question whether or not I would buy it.

Happy Friday, everyone! Enjoy your weekend—and don’t you dare start shopping for fall clothing.

jump(suit)ing around

Immediately after taking these photos I had one big styling regret: the Michele watch. Who wears a diamond-face watch with a leather wristband to THE BEACH? Assholes and Real Housewives of Orange County. That’s who.

So we’re just going to pretend I’m not wearing the watch as we scroll through this post…

This jumpsuit is tricky because of the impossibility of wearing a bra and its inclination for wedgies, but it’s oh-so-cute for summer and definitely worth the occasional adjustments needed to pull it off.

Pairing it with heels gives it a dressy, trendy edge, but for today’s walk along the Gay Head Cliffs, I went the casual route with these ruffle sandals. I mean, I already blew it with the watch, I certainly wasn’t going to try and make a pair of pumps work at the beach. I’m not that delusional.

mint & lace

I channeled my inner Barney for this outfit. The dinosaur, not the high-end department store. Mint is huge this season and these purple pumps are also huge…6” to be exact. It seemed like a perfect match.

I absolutely adore the city of Boston, but my one complaint is that not enough people wear heels. (I say “people” and not “girls” because if the Real Housewives of Atlanta taught me anything it’s that a man can WORK IT in a pair of stilettos). I don’t like the fact that I’m totally out of place most nights when I put on 5-6 inchers. Does it completely stop me? No. But it’s definitely the reason these bright, fun pumps don’t get worn more often.

What do you guys think of the mint trend? I’ve never had a ton of green in my closet, but I’m loving the shade.
