Happy Summer Solstice! The heat streak finally broke here in D.C., and I was relieved to be able to slip into one of my favorite pairs of jeans. These snakeskin ones are an awesome alternative to khaki or a pair of white jeans, meaning you can literally wear them with anything — other prints, bright colors.. you name it. In particular, I’m a huge fan of Blank NYC; they’re great for us girls who have a little junk in the trunk.
I decided to top them off with this cozy, blue merino wool top from J Crew. I bought the sweater a few sizes larger than normal to keep it cozy, and it allows me to play with proportions. Even though it is large, it still has a bit of structure due to the fabric, keeping the look put together, yet casual. I finished my outfit off with one of my favorite summer bags from Kate Spade. In my opinion, a neon yellow bag is a summer staple. Even on a cloudy day, it brings a little sunshine to your style.
Speaking of sunshine, did you guys notice that I went blonde?! I’m having a tough time grasping it myself. Luckily, I found an awesome colorist at Immortal Beloved down here in DC. If you ever find yourself in the area needing a root touch up or a color overhaul, make sure to ask for Jen Phillips, she’s my highlighting hero.
Til next time! xo, <3
