Casual Friday/Keeping Cool


Today is all about keeping cool and wearing light fabrics. I love the warm days of summer, but when it becomes a brutal furnace outside all I want to do is stay inside. Since I don’t have that option I scoured my closet to find the easiest and lightest things to wear. I paired my neon-ish yellow tee-shirt and my orange print maxi skirt (formerly a dress!) together for a colorful yet cool combo. I added my blue necklace just for a pop of color.

What are your go to items to combat the heat? Have a great weekend!

Skirt (dress): the Avenue

Shirt: Old Navy

Belt: Old Navy

Sandals: Steve Madden

Necklace & Bracelet: Forever 21

    Love, love, love the print on your dress worn as a skirt. Avenue is actually one of my best kept secret places – they’re clothes have changed so much recently – I find gems there a lot. I like how you styled this.

      Thank you! I totally agree with you about the Avenue. Although they’re closing much of their stores, their website has alot of options

    love this Georgette. I’m gonna look for a skirt like that. Its looks like it can double as as a cover up too. Thanks for the idea.

    Love it. I thought it was another ON maxi skirt, and in my head I was saying, “Yep, going to buy that right now!” I love it tucked in tee and paired with the turquoise necklace!

    So cute! I always like yellow with a turquoise accent. You are a totally bad influence! I want that skirt/dress NOW! BTW, I found that cute print black and white skirt from Old Navy that you wore a few posts ago and scooped it up. Sorry, now you have a copy cat in the Bay Area!

      Thank you! I’m glad you got the ON skirt! Isn’t it such a great skirt?!!! I think the US can handle two stylish ladies on both coasts! 🙂
