I hope summer never ends, so I never have to take off this hat!
So labor day has come and gone… but I’m still wearing white bottoms! Hey, rules are meant to be broken, right? right!
As I’ve mentioned before, my style took a simplified turn this summer and this hat became my go-to accessory! I found it at a vintage store! I was unsure about it at first and it took me a few weeks to get up the courage to wear it; but ever since putting it on I have not been able to part with it!
To dress up my chambray shirt, and give the whole look a sense of whimsy I created a broach collage using vintage pieces! The bee and airplane broaches are real vintage pieces, while the elephant is part of a vintage earring set! Actually, the airplane broach belonged to a gal who was an airplane stewardess in the sixties!

What have you been wearing all summer? Are you sad to see it go?
Oh, and before you go …
in honor of labor day, i’m stepping out in head to toe bright white!
so the rule is, no white pants or shoes after labor day, but i don’t necessarily believe in or follow that rule for a few reasons 1) i grew up in Arizona, where “summer” lasts until November, so I saw nothing wrong with rocking a white until the temp dropped to double digits. 2) i love all white for winter!
I’ve jumped on the zara skort bandwagon, every blogger, celebrities and women in new york city has been wearing this skort all summer long! it’s just so practical for the city, i love my white one so much I also picked it up in black for fall.

this dress will now always have a special place in my heart because i wore it when i became reunited with my best friend. she was serving on a mission, so i hadn’t see or talked to her for 18 months (only letters). i went to pick her up from the airport, wearing this dress and her first words to me (through tears) were “you look like a picnic basket”, so now I can’t look at it without cracking a smile! i’m so happy to have her back!

… why not turn them into an outfit!
one chilly morning at the end of February,
i woke to the smell of lemons and thought “i want a lemon
dress”! weird, i know, but i was determined. anyways, i searched online, local stores and even at vintage boutiques without success. by april i was about to give up when i stumbled upon lemon printed shorts
at c.wonder.com (worn here
). the next day, waffie && i wondered down to soho in search for the shorts, where i found this zesty little dress out of the same print!
i swiped my card with a smile and never looked back.
for the extremely affordable price of only $22, you too can get the look
in yellow or any other color!
