Late Summer: What to Wear

I know in my last mini post I promised to do a more detailed post on my sister’s recent wedding…which I will! But not quite yet…still getting photos ready to go. ;) In the meantime, I will post a ‘beginning of fall’ blogfit…

August is always such a tricky month to dress for. I mean, 2 weeks ago it was 70 some degrees, and this past week it’s been well above 90 almost daily. So, what do you wear when you want to stay cool, but then also not get numb while sitting in air conditioning??

My solution is this: a pencil skirt and tee, and a blazer for chillier temperatures. It’s work wear-able. This ensemble also keeps things a *bit* more on the casual side, but not tooo casual.

Pencil skirt and jacket from H&M (I’m telling you, I have not found a pencil skirt anywhere else that has fit as well as the ones I own from H&M). Basic tee; jewelry is either very old, or my mom’s. :) Shoes from Target, Belt from Anthropologie (no longer available). Brahmin bag.

Here are some random pictures from this summer. :) Some are from our very own Put-in-Bay… And some are from a day in our National Park-Cuyahoga Valley.

To me, summer always includes nature. We should all ‘be one with nature’, as my Grandpa would always say… And I say that’s the most fun, (and easiest) in the summer.
