Ah summer, I am hopelessly devoted to you. From those summer days to (Oh!) those summer nights, I just cannot get enough. And the moment that the warm weather arrives, I throw aside my black denim, my jewel-toned tops, my plaid button ups and I say to my sundresses, my white knit tops and my sandals “you are the ones that I want”.
But, as fun as it is to dress for the season you have, its worth bringing a few of those not-so-summer items out to play every so often. You know, let your sunshine-y dress and your ankle booties go together like ramma-lamma-lamma!
That idea, and perhaps a favorite movie of mine, is what inspired this little ensemble. Because, if I do say so myself, I think I may resemble everybody’s favorite Aussie, Sandy from Grease! (Which, as much as I adore this movie, I have to say as a feminist, the end is a bit insufferable. Anytime a woman has to change to get a man, my eyes roll back so far in my head I worry they just may get stuck. And don’t even get me started on the flying car thing….). I just paired my new favorite off the shoulder top with my thrown in the back of the closet til Fall black jeans, and BOOM, I was all ready to have you tell me about it, stud.
So as much as I enjoy my strappy sundresses and my easy breezy summer tops, I will have to remember to mix it up every so often. Because when I do it right…why, it’s greased lightning!
