keep it simple

Sometimes, ya just gotta throw on jeans and a white shirt. It's a classic...and after all, a classic never dies, right? Besides, I think the pleated shirt adds an extra element of sass (or class), and sometimes simple combinations like this can be a great transitioning outfit for Fall. 

Everyone keeps talking about how Summer is ending, and I'd like to pretend that I can relate, but let's be honest-in Phoenix, it's going to be Summer until Nov/Dec. In other's hot as hell, always. So forgive me for the perpetual Summer outfits that I'll probably be bombarding you with once you all start piling on the sweaters and coats; it's simultaneously a blessing and a curse. (Just to clarify-I'm not exactly wishing cold weather on myself, but I would like to have a reason to wear this freaking coat I've been dying for ever since I saw it in this post. Ughhhhh. #dead)

Are you all looking forward to Fall? Or wishing that Summer was longer?

  1. I miss WINTER SNOW and my sweaters.

    A white shirt and jeans are classic and effortless and, sometimes, all that is needed to look great. I like your bag the color is so warm and your shoes are so cute. I am longing for an extension of summer weather. Unfortunately, I live in the Midwest so summer weather will be ending soon.
