Summers favorite fabric?! Linen of course!
I have a special kind of love for linen because it can make you feel naked and cool even in the most treacherous weather conditions. This is a lovely linen dress I scored at Goodwill for like $3.00 (totally winning) and it is completely vintage but oh-so cool ( in every meaning of the word).
I actually “styled” my hair – more like twist it to the side and called it an up-do – but to my defense it actually does look style. I wanted to wear my leopard heels with this so bad because I just love leopard and burgundy. I added burgundy lips to match and of course my super sleek sunglasses to match.
Hope ya’ll digs.

The days of short shorts, tank tops and mini skirts is fast approaching. Since it has been pretty hot in my area, I have already been sporting plenty or shorts and mini’s. I bought this mini skirt at a thrift store last year and I have worn it a few times. I like the fact that this skirt is linen(ish) so it is the perfect skirt for summer. I hope I can wear it at least one last time since the skirt is starting to fit me large at the waist.
The shirt that I wore with this skirt is chiffon like/sheer like material so it was the perfect shirt for this skirt. I added the shoes for color contrast and a black clutch just to keep it simple. The one thing I love about this outfit? The skirt, shirt and clutch were both lucky Goodwill finds :).

I bought this pretty lace pencil skirt a few months ago because I just love lace. The color and the fabric are very nice and I was so surprised that I found this at Forever 21. I wanted to keep things simple today because my energy levels have been quite low. I paired the skirt with a simple black stop and black heels.

Sunday, the day that we should take time off from our busy schedules and rest. For me, it was an easy going morning and afternoon. I went to a Seafood Festival where the food was YUUUUMMMM ! Of course if you grow up you on the coast or in an island, you either learn to love or loath seafood. In my case, I love seafood! I can’t get enough of it. The boyfriend and I had an easy afternoon of walking, snapping pics and eating. Now, it’s time for reality and homework it is. I have two semesters to go before graduation and plan on passing every single class left in my curriculum. I am ready lord!
This is an easy outfit, not much that I did to make it stand out as the color is a stand out all on its own. I paired it with strappy, beige/off white ruffled sandals (BTW thrifted brand new with tags at Goodwill for $5.00!) and a vintage cross body ( not shown) Dooney & Bourke bag. I kept my face bare with a bit of gloss and natural eyeshadow.
Hope you all had a fantastic Sunday.
