Remember Firecracker Popsicles from the ice cream truck when you were little? This skirt completely reminds me of those summer treats, and of 4th of July. I picked up this fresh little number at Forever 21 the other day and couldn’t wait until Independence Day to wear it. Instead, I decided to wear it immediately and with something equally as bright. I am in love with this bold J.Crew blouse in “Poppy” and own it in “Olive Moss” as well.
I want to take a minute and discuss this outfit. I’ve realized that this combination of items—a blouse, skirt, and sleeveless trench—is my sort of go-to uniform. This mixture, so matter what colors or textures I’m wearing, is what I gravitate to when I want to feel put together and feminine without trying too hard. Do you guys find that you have a uniform?
These photos were taken by the lovely Laney on Friday night while we sat on her fire escape sipping on white wine and munching on carrots and chipotle hummus. The temperature was just right with a slight breeze, which was the perfect way to spend the last hours of daylight.
