What I Wore: Not-Too-Hot Summer Day

Summer has definitely arrived in Tucson. Cherries, peaches, and sweet corn are plentiful in the grocery store! The swimming pools and splash pads are all open! And the temperatures have already soared past 100.

Even so, I'll take 100 in the desert over 80 with humidity any day. On days where the weather is mild, I sometimes will throw together an outfit like this.

What I Wore Summer Day

Denim Button-Up by H&M - Several months ago I told my stylish sister-in-law that I was looking for a denim button-up shirt, preferably under $20. Shortly afterward, she sent me a text with a photo of a shirt from H&M. I promptly went to the mall and purchased it. That's my kind of shopping - focused and fast. P.S. I also just noticed that they have a sleeveless version - worth a look!

LOVE Letter Pendant by BaubleBar - Spelling the word L-O-V-E, this simple necklace ($26) is exactly my style. It's subtle in size and color, but with a wonderful message. It serves as a reminder to me to love God and love others everyday.

Layering Tank by modbod - I'm a HUGE fan of "layering." Tanks and camisoles are stylish, provide great coverage, and are awesome for nursing (which I've been doing on-an-off now for the past 6 1/2 years). Modbod makes some of the best. Their tanks are stretchable, not too short, and wash well. Plus, they're available in a wide array of pretty colors. In this shot, I'm wearing the signature tank in african violet.


Watercolor Organic Cotton Skirt by aventura - This gorgeous little number is just right for summer - knee-length, lightweight, and lovely. I particularly like the belt that hangs freestyle and the fact that I can throw it in my washing machine instead of making the driving to a dry cleaners. Bonus: aventura is an eco-friendly company - 80% of their clothing is made from environmentally-friendly fabrics.

That said, I sometimes like to "dress up" my outfit just a bit without resorting to heels. These sandals are just right because they're comfortable while not being quite as casual as my typical choice.

  1. Very pretty! I especially love the bronze sandals - I've actually been seeking a metallic pair and maybe I'll have to find something from Dansko!
