Jacket- J Crew (outlet), Silk blouse- Mango, Shorts (similar here)- Urban Outfitters, Bag- Aldo,  Necklace- Ann Taylor  (outlet), Sandals- Aldo, Glasses- Warby Parker's Sinclair, Nails- American Apparel's Neon Yellow, Rings- ASOS & Tiffany's

I love these glasses, but I do admit that they don't look great with everything (which is why I also purchased these, to wear on the reg). When paired with the right outfit, however, these nerdy glasses are transformative. I almost think of them the same way I think of statement necklaces- figure out what it works with,  wear it occasionally, but wear it well. Also, I think in the past two weeks, there hasn't been one outfit I've worn that doesn't include something white. White and black with neon nails has basically turned into a summer uniform for me. 

A short life update- I found out I will be moving back to the East coast next month! It feels incredibly bittersweet, as I think I have fallen in love with SF and all the people I've met while living here. But luckily I have my best friend from home, Vida, out here for the next couple weeks to distract me from the realities of life :) It'll be a busy month, but I will try to keep you guys updated! Expect lots of last minute touristy posts in SF, and maybe some interior design inspiration while I move into a new apartment on the East coast! 

As always, thanks so much for reading!

Bright Pleats

Tank- LF, Bandeau- American Apparel, Skirt- H&M, Belt- H&M, Bag- Aldo, Bangle- Forever 21, Wedges- Johnston & Murphy, Ray Ban Wayfarer Sunnies
I've been wearing this mint colored tank & white bandeau combo quite frequently- like with a leather jacket and lace shorts, here. It's easy to throw on and simple enough not to detract from even the boldest, brightest, pleated skirt. This H&M skirt has been a spring/summer staple for me since I bought it last year. I think how I wore it last year around this time is still my favorite, but I am still looking for more ways to wear it!

Also, how cute is that light blue Solo cup?? I had to restrain myself from buying every pastel colored plastic cup in Target..

Hope you guys are getting some nice sunny weather, wherever you are! :) What are some of your summer staples so far?
