Shayla Shoemint Debut

I love a loose knit sweaters, but never lived in the climate that permitted them in the summer. I was always so jealous of those people who could throw on a breezy sweater or a light button-down and walk around town. But thanks to this summer's cooler temps, I'm finally one of those people. I've been enjoying living like this although it's quite an adjustment from the usual sweltering humid Chicago summers. I'll enjoy it while it lasts and I hope you do too!

I decided to toughen up this girly color pallet with my new Shoemint Shayla sandals. It's kind of like the summer version of a bootie. Substantial and totally bad-ass!

Francesca's Tribal Print Dress

I recently wore this Francesca's Collections dress to a friends wedding in Milwaukee. When I first bought it, I didn't believe it was dressy enough for a wedding but after dressing it up with some killer black sling-backs and a double layer of necklaces, I was a believer.

Knit H&M Tank

So this is a little embarrassing. These pictures are way back from NYC in June. And Guess what, I still have one more outfit from NYC to share still too. Clearly, you can tell I've been enjoying the heck out of summer. 

This top is unlike anything I have ever purchased before. I mean, it's a gold knitted tank top! For one it's pretty much see-through (not school-teacher friendly) and it was only $14 from H&M so I figured what the heck, why not, It's summer break.

The real trick will be to see what I can do with it to make it work appropriate. Can it be done? Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions welcome!
