Between the Lines

Missguided dress

These days, I tend to stray away from body con silhouettes, instead opting for drapey/loose/oversized fits. There was something about this Missguided dress, however, that drew me in immediately. From the double layer, to the slit, and of course the stripes, I knew I wanted to style it with my trusty cons for an unexpectedly (or expectedly, knowing me) dressed down look. Of course, the dress works equally well with some killer heels!

Can't believe August is around the corner— usually I'm all about everlasting summers, but this time around, I'm making some very exciting plans for fall that I can't wait to share! Happy Wednesday!

Pairing some old favorites with my ultimate sale find of the season: this faux leather skirt. A surprising amount of my purchases this season have been impulse buys (compared to my signature overly calculated purchases)— and equally surprisingly, all of them have been classic pieces that I can count on season after season. Have you guys been making the sale rounds?

This asymmetrical bralette is everything. My love for bralettes has long been documented here on the blog, and the straps on this are the exact balance between understated and attention grabbing— just enough to make you do a double take. Perfect for casual weekend outfits that need that extra oomph.

In other news, a huge thank you to Rachel and the Brit + Co team for including me in their roundup of the most fashionable Instagram accounts! Such an honor to be featured among blogger heavyweights, including some of my absolute favorites. Don't forget to follow me on Instagram here!

Shades of Summer

From cornflower blue nail polish (my current obsession is Essie's Bikini So Teeny) to shades of chambray and placid blue, I'm majorly drawn to anything pale-blue-toned this season. For someone who consistently shies away from color, there's just something so fresh about a clean blue shade for summer. It pairs surprisingly well with a black, white + denim wardrobe (just see my Wanelo story), and this oversized button-up definitely won't be my last foray into this color.
