Lords of Summertown



Rules of the Game:

1. Sport high waisted skirts (in linen and cotton) with matching bras peeking out under tanks.

2. Wear a hat.

3. Always keep a swimsuit in your backpack.

It’s really, really summer. In breathable fabrics, silhouettes that define my waist and show off the figure are the only way to go.

On a hot day of werkin’ it out at the studio, I wore a Forever 21 cotton tank tied at the waist, a cotton underwire bra from Victoria’s Secret, a Free People skirt picked up second hand at Secondi, a baseball cap, my Ray Ban Av’s, my dad’s old back pack, and some flip flops.

Oh, and the background pattern is inspired by a new bikini (bought on sale) from J. Crew.

How To Wear A Button Up

It was just a matter of time before I did a How To featuring my favorite article of clothing… in general, I prefer to lift button ups off of my dad or brother and then wear them to death.

The star shirt is from the Urban Outfitters Men’s Department, the red one¬†underneath my Madewell leather jacket is from Old Navy, the plaid one underneath my grandma’s monogrammed sweater is from my brother c/o of J.Crew, the polka dot shirt my mom got from Land’s End Canvas, the chambray one is Rag & Bone and worn over a Gap henley, and the “wishful thinking” shirt is from J.Crew, worn over a Victoria’s Secret string bikini and Forever 21 booty-licious shorts.

And if you haven’t already scoped these, here is How to Wear a Scarf, How to Wear a Tee, and¬†How to Wear Jeans.

Lastly, clicky clicky here to follow me on Bloglovin‘.

Slow Roll

Those shorts are one part of my animal print wardrobe canon.

Animal Print Problems

The genus is made of a wool leopard print scarf picked up from the roomie-giveaway-pile, a silk leopard print scarf from Target, a safari-scene-print¬†handkerchief bought at a vintage stand from college, a J.Crew silk snakeskin top, leopard-print cotton shorts just picked up at Forever 21, a snakeskin clutch gifted from Lucky FABB, leopard print jeans from Target, an ocelot print belt from J.Crew, leopard print slip-on sneaks from the Old Navy boy’s department, an ocelot faux-fur jacket from Filene’s Basement, a silk leopard print blouse-y top from Joie, the Prada leopard print pumps, a Rogan for Target dress, a silk bow blouse from grandma, and a leopard print cardigan from JCPenney. Whew! And, Meow!

Sass. Class.

I think this Rag & Bone tuxedo jacket was made for New Year’s… I debuted it last year, and it felt so right again for 2012.
