Suede Skirt- 1960s Vintage:: Blouse- 1970s Vintage:: Necklace- Thrifted:: Shoes- Thrifted (J Crew):: Backpack- Handmade, purchased in San Pedro, Guatemala Summer 2010:: Glasses- Burberry
I've been about all about comfort this summer, and for me that means simple skirts, blouses, and large bags to schlep all of my items for the day. I pulled together some closet staples: a 1960s suede skirt, a cotton embroidered blouse, and cork sandals for a post-work afternoon spent around my neighborhood doing laundry and grocery shopping. Also featured are my newly purchased glasses, with frames from Burberry. I have worn glasses since eighth grade but have been an avid contact user since college. As a rather nerdy 13 year old with glasses and braces, I always opted for contacts as an adult. Perhaps it was these awkward memories from my youth that kept me from buying a proper pair of glasses until 27. Regardless, I am quite pleased with my new frames and plan to wear them frequently.

Wow. I love that you're backpack is handmade. It's so trendy with them being ubiquitous in Forever 21, Urban Outfitters and such but it's always nice to help out small businesses in other countries. I really like the style of your frames. They fit you!

The Jones :

Smashing backpack! And I love the scalloped hem on your skirt.

I love the lace with the arrowhead necklace. It's such a great contrast. You look so pretty!
I definitely have been drawn towards simplicity by way of very few layers, too. I forgot how nice it is to just throw on a skirt and shirt or dress without worrying about tights or cardigans!

Jamie Rose :

Your new glasses are super cute on you! I always wore contacts ever since I needed any sort of eye correction, so glasses are really fun for me to experiment with once in a while. I bought quite a few varied pairs over the past couple years. I think I need a pair like yours!
