The Basics

Black and White Striped Madewell Tank Top

I recently realized that I haven’t worn my metallic oxfords the entire summer. I love them, and would wear them all the time if I could, but I’m not sure if they’re work-appropriate. They’re definitely the perfect weekend shoe, though! I’ve even gotten compliments from men who appreciate a good oxford. I’m always pleasantly surprised since men never seem to notice our fashion.

My outfits have been pretty low-key this summer. Have you noticed that it’s either been super hot or surprisingly cool this year? That’s how Cincinnati has felt, at least. I feel like there hasn’t been that perfect summer weather, and now we’re running out of time for that happen. It’s kind of been a nice break to not overthink what I’m wearing. This Madewell top and J.Crew chino shorts have become my summer uniform on the weekends and when I’m running errands.

Another reason style has been on the back burner lately is because I’m prepping for my move. I pretty much have the major bedroom essentials, but have yet to put anything together. Thankfully Pinterest has become my best friend for inspiration. I was a late adopter to Pinterest, but now I’m hooked! If only I had an ounce of the creativity these Pinterest-y people seem to have.

    So cute! J. Crew has the best-fitting shorts. Pinterest always amazes me – the creativity on there sometimes makes me feel as if I’m completely unoriginal, though haha.
