Cold Shoulder


I think this is the first time I've worn shorts all summer, which seems crazy - though I've definitely needed to wear pants a good deal more than I like. I think this cold shoulder cami is really adorable, and I'm happy a small popped back in stock so I was able to snatch it up! I never know with Old Navy, I've had a lot of misses, but every so often I can find a good piece that doesn't cost a ton. It also doesn't hurt when I've got Gap credit card rewards burning a hole in my pocket - they have facilitated quite a few purchases this summer, and at least they were mostly guilt free!

All in good time


Over the past couple years the amount of work looks I share has steadily diminished. Summer used to be my time, with the extra sunlight getting a few snaps of a look at the end of the day was a cinch.

Now I feel like most week nights hold some obligation, all the while rationalizing that my work looks have just been uninspiring. So when Sean asked me if I wanted to go take photos on a particularly sunny Tuesday last week, my first response was that I didn't really like my outfit.

But I decided I liked this blouse with these pants for a reason, just when tucked in it was blousey and billowy and my waist felt lost, so I turned to my favorite trick, and knotted it up. Then I grabbed a pair of sunglasses I haven't worn in a while, as they've been tucked in a drawer - out of sight, out of mind. Finally I swapped my practical bag for the bamboo one. Not that I haven't taken the bamboo bag to work before!

With a few little tweaks, my boring work outfit became blog-worthy. If only I could think about these things when getting dressed the first time.

Longstanding Leopard


Ready or not, it's Monday again. I'm still working through my dress collection this summer, and have brought out this leopard dress, a longstanding member of my closet - you can check out the first time I wore it back in 2011!

I suppose the thing about remixing dresses, is that every year I'm bound to have new accessories. So the dress I've worn dozens of times can get a new life when I add in the trendy bag of the season, and even some of my Rocksbox jewelry. The fun thing about borrowing jewelry is that I can never get tired of a piece, since I just send back what I've got and a new box will be on my doorstep in a matter of days! Don't forget you can give Rocksbox a free month trial with the code lydiaxoxo!
