How many of you are back in school already? And by you, of course I mean your kids. We have a couple weeks left, although we’re winding down. It already FEELS like fall here in PA though. I wonder if this is going to be one of those years that gets cold as soon as Labor Day hits and never looks back. I always enjoy the summers that linger a bit, personally, but I have to admit these unseasonably cool temperatures are rather refreshing. We’ve had our air conditioning off for almost a week! That is UNHEARD of in August. I might have to give in today, though. It’s starting to feel humid, and that’s what I can’t stand.
At any rate, I have a FEW photos this week. I feel like with every successive week this summer, I’ve gotten more and more lax about putting myself together.
One day that I did make the effort was last Wednesday when we found ourselves with only one child at home for dinner. My son was at band camp, and my older daughter was on a church day trip so we decided to splurge and go out to eat. I wore this crocheted tunic by CAbi that was provided to me when I helped promote their B.i.G. Event last spring, and I paired it with the loden-green cargo pants from my last Stitch Fix box.
I don’t remember WHY we took two photo shoots, lol!! Oh yes, it was too windy to go outside before dinner, so we took this indoor shot. And then after dinner, it was nice out so we went out back and tried again. I know, I’m certifiable. Any-WHO. I layered two of my Stella & Dot necklaces and wore my orange Tory Burch Leather Wrap Logo Bracelet along with my Alex & Ani bangles. And I carried my Rebecca Minkoff 5-Zip (back in stock, but alas, no longer on sale.) I love the contrast of the royal blue bag and orange bracelet against the earth tones in the outfit.
Don’t miss my Stella & Dot Giveaway going on right now!!!
This was obviously a chilly and super casual day. I mostly just worked from home, but I did take the time to shower and put my face on (which is more than I can say for most days of late!) The ombre sweatshirt and gray cropped sweatpants are samples from Fabletics. The two silver bangles are Stella & Dot and the necklace was purchased from Studio Jewel to help support my friend Amanda who is battling breast cancer right now. I wore this the day she went to her first chemo treatment so I’d remember to pray for her throughout the day. They are still available for purchase if you want one!
I wore this to church on Sunday. This is by far my favorite outfit of the week!!
The shirt is from Lucky Brand last year. I layer it over a skin-colored cami because it’s so sheer. I often wear it with white, but this time I paired it with my almond skinny moto jeans because they, ahem, fit me better right now. The bag and shoes are old as well, but the necklace and bracelets are from Stella & Dot, the new fall line!
Finally, I wore this yesterday afternoon. I think I finally got in the shower around 3PM. Summer’s winding down, and I’m getting lazy! It’s just a casual black top from LOFT (old) and my cuffed jeans shorts. I wore my silver sandals because . . . I think I broke my foot. Seriously. I see the doctor tomorrow. It’s my OTHER foot. My “bad” foot was feeling so good, I went running/walking on Sunday, and somehow I jacked up my other foot. I am trying not to borrow trouble and get too depressed about it until I find out for sure, but I have a verrrry bad feeling that I have a stress fracture. Boohoo. Earrings are Stella & Dot and the bracelet with the pop of yellow is Papparazzi. The other silver bracelets are Stella & Dot.
