Summer Favorites.

sunglasses // scarf // tunic // shorts // bag // sandals

happy Monday! Is anyone at work today? It’s business as usual for me but I have a feeling (or I at least hope), that everyone is on vacation! Between London and being sick (and an upcoming trip to Cape Cod) I spent most of the weekend working and getting ahead. As a self-employed person, my favorite times to work are often weekends + holidays… it’s nice to be able to write/edit/create graphics without the distraction of email! Besides that I watched the entire second season of Billions (so good, and what an ending!!) and started a (really good) new book. I kinda just needed an introvert weekend with everything that’s been going on, lately.

So I don’t know if anyone is even reading today, but if you are, thanks for popping by! And I have a fun new update to the site – my developers just built these custom captions for me…. You’ll see them in today’s post and in future outfit posts. I really love how they look… they break up all the photos to make things a bit more interesting and dynamic. Well, that’s my opinion – what do you think?

This outfit is one of my favorite as it’s a just few of my best basics (this tunic and these cutoffs) which would be boring on their own. Adding a fun scarf + sunglasses makes the whole thing feel fresh and fun. It’s amazing how something as simple as a pretty scarf can make such a big improvement.

Outfit Details: Lush Tunic (on sale, only $27.90!) // Cuyana Scarf (c/o) // Rag & Bone Boyfriend Shorts (I’m linking to this year’s version as mine are a few years old) // Birkenstocks  // Talbots Bag (c/o) // Talbots Sunglasses (c/o)

Let's Talk Accessories...

Great accessories have the power to really transform and elevate the most boring outfits (in this case, a fun pair of sunglasses and a great scarf!) Scroll through to see a few more of my favorite accessories.

The best part? They are all under $50!

the sweetest straw bag...

I love this little straw bag so much… annnnd it’s 40% off right now, making it the perfect summer steal. It also comes in a fiery orange-red and navy blue.

shop it!

white sunglasses, who knew!?

I was highly skeptical about white sunglasses until I tried on this pair. They are just so fun! I’ve been wearing them constantly.

go get 'em!

    That bag is so cute! I love the green against the straw. And the captions are a great idea. I really like the additional commentary.
