Bye Bye July

This post is a tad overdue, but we all know how those last few weeks of summer go by in the blink of a waterproof-mascaraed eyelash.  As a current member of a tourist trap community, I can confidently state that I’m more than ready for this hellish season to end.  These looks were the best I could come up with in 100+ temps everyday, so if I’m showing too much leg that’s why! Bring on the leggings and booties!! Well, not yet quite yet – check out this easy late summer looks first!!

I picked up this army green tank from on my trip last week, thinking it would be great for fall with distressed jeans and some tan wedges.  Since denim prison weather is at least 20 degrees away, substitutions were made.  I love these daisy shorts but the care tag literally says “DO NOT DRY CLEAN, DO NOT WASH”. Um, excuse me? I’m a little rebel (who likes to be clean) so I wash mine on the “handwash” setting on the washer and line dry.

Top: Old Navy

Shorts: Forever 21

Heels : Poshmark ( scored them for 8$!!)

Remember to switch up your makeup if you want to amp up a dramatic look.  Darkening the lip or even changing up your foundation shade slightly can take you up a could notches!

I’m lucky/cursed to live in the neck of the woods where swimming is a necessity to maintain sanity this time o’ year so I have to cover at least a couple cute swim styles!! High waisted bottoms are my favorite because of the versatility… I mix and match different brands and sizes all the time!

Sometimes you need to go out into the world but you just wanna be comfy, dang it!  This is my solution: comfy tee, comfy shorts, braid that hair down BUT keep it polished.  You can totally pull of sweatpants and a tee if you keep accessories and hair a little glam.  Celebrity on her day off chic!

Shades: Poshmark

Foil Tee: Sononma Life & Style

Shorts: H&M

Sandals: Madden Girl

Le sigh.  When will the ambidextrous braiding skills I pray for present themselves?!
