Sequins and Sea Breezes: spring in summer

spring in summer

9/01/2016


Yay Friday eve and first day of September! I don't know about you but I am so ready for this extended weekend! I have a lot of things planned but I'm just happy to have an extra day off even if I will be running around like crazy. We're having a tropical depression move through which has brought slightly cooler temperatures (it's in the mid 80's instead of mid 90's) and I'm soaking up every minute of it since I know it won't last but I'm hoping it doesn't bring rain the entire weekend. I need to get outside and do something instead of being cramped indoors all weekend. 
When I think of pastels I usually think of spring and only spring. In fact, I'm not one who usually wears pastels at all except for maybe the occasional blush but when I got this top in one of my Le Tote boxes I fell in love with it. The eyelet detail is so dainty and feminine and I love the keyhole detail in the back. Even though I felt like this outfit would be WAY more appropriate in spring I still rocked it to work and out for dinner and drinks. It isn't fall yet so why not, right? I'm sure I could have made it more "fall appropriate" but I was really digging the lilac and white combo so I just ran with it. Which makes me laugh considering just yesterday I was posting a fall inspired outfit. Don't judge me, I'm all over the place. At least I know it! 
While I'm talking about things being "all over the place", funny enough, probably about an hour before I took these pictures the weather was super rainy and gross and I thought there was no way I was going to be able to get these pictures done (I did them on my lunch break at work) but then the skies opened up and it got kinda sunny. We immediately ran out and took full advantage and I'm glad we did because the second we got back inside it started pouring again. Florida weather is by far some of the craziest I've ever seen but hey, it's home.

  5. This is such an adorable look, spring or not wear it! We have been having crazy pop up showers at our house, like only at our house. The rest of the city is on a drought, but we get rain everyday. It's so weird!

  15. I love how this looks with the white denim and jean jacket! The best part of fashion is that you can totally change things up for whatever you're feeling-- pastels or jewel tones :)

  16. Super cute!! I kinda feel like you could even pair it with some really dark wash jeans and a pair of caramel booties or wedges and make it like a "fall transition" outfit!

  32. Yes and YES! Those shoes and that top! So cute.

    We're having cooler weather in LA, too. I'm conflicted because I want fall but also clinging to summer still.
