Zara Yellow Jacket

We can just call this look “all of the things.” There is a lot going on here. Lots of color, a little crazy. But sometimes it’s fun to overdo it. And these shorts  are kinda amazing — they have toucans + martinis on them… does it get any better? (The answer is no… it does not.) ASOS has been killing it lately — nearly everything I’ve bought this summer has been from them!

PS – have you guys shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary sale yet? I currently have this dress + these boots in my cart… but haven’t pulled the trigger yet… so hard to think about fall clothes right now!

  1. Those shorts are too fun! I shopped the sale in KC this weekend and by some miracle, left empty handed. I agree, it’s super hard to think of cold weather wear right now!

  7. Those shorts are too fun! Pieces with whimsy are so great in the summer- they kind of remind me of less-stuffy critter shorts!

  9. Great outfit, Grace! I have the similar white blazer from Zara and can’t wait until it cools down enough to wear it.

  11. Grace,

    I love your use of texture mixing! That jacket with those shorts- absolute swoon! There is something so whimsical of pieces that feature animals- be it shorts, a skirt, or even a small accessory like that darling necklace. My grandmother always told us elephants are said to bring good luck when their trunks are pointing up.

    Always, Andrea

  14. How does ASOS stuff run in general? I’ve never ordered from them, but I LOVE the Helmut Lang look-a-like blazer you just posted! I can’t decided what size to order.

      Hi! I know, isn’t that blazer so cute? So at ASOS I almost always size up. I find that their clothing runs a little small. For a while I’d order two of everything and then just started ordering up. Better strategy!
