 Skirt: Thrift Top: Silence and Noise


The sun was shining yesterday, and with it came the first day of summer heat here by the beach.  It was hot enough that I waited till near sundown to go on a little nature walk by my house, and my boyfriend snapped a few photos while we were out.  I'm already missing the days of cool overcast weather, and now I have to plan my outfits for 2 months of sweltering working conditions and home life.

Adorable outfit. I love how you tied the blouse up rather than tuck it in. You would look so great in an Audrey Hepburn style photo, as in a cropped gingham top and jean shorts. If I ever find one while thrifting, I'm sending it to you! Also classic that there was a runner in the photo. How very CA. ;)

Super cute outfit! You are so adorable. Ah, hot weather is no fun! Hopefully (and I am sure you will) you will be able to find some cute outfits to cope with it.

I love your blog! Please check mine out and follow if you like.

I love tied shirts with high-waisted skirts, and your shirt is also a particularly nice one, I love the stripes!! And your skirt is lovely too, such a nice simple shape and light summery colour!

You look great! I love the top with the color of the skirt. Your last picture is so funny! I so understand you with the weather. I live in L.A. too and I am already wishing fall would come us.

Amazing. The top and skirt combo is seriously killer. Just deadly.

And the black rim of that hat is awesome. I hope one just like it lands in my thrift. It's a very dapper touch.

Sorry that dude was totally trying to upstage you with his very odd, basketball shorts wedgie....

love the color combination of your top and skirt!:) you always manage to pull off long skirts (which in my standard is anything below the knee). And you have the best hats. *Envious*

AS much as I love the winter and hate really hot weather... There are much cuter clothes to be worn! I love little dresses, cropped tops, and shorts the most!

Although I do have quite a collection of coats. They hardly ever get worn during these not-so cold Southern California winters...

Jordan said...

Fantastic colors and accessories. Gorgeous, as always!

Sara said...

Christina said...

Oh my, your top-skirt combo is excellent! And I can relate to the cooler weather- I'm a huge fan of layering.

Usually I find that such an awkward length for a skirt, but you have such amazing legs and you pull everything you wear off.
