Where I wore it: To work on a Monday morning
We all have those days where we want to feel unencumbered, dressed, but not really. Those days are usually Mondays for me. By the end of the week, I've worked up to belts and fitted waists, but on a Monday the sheer thought of wrapping something around my middle is enough to send me back to bed, covers thrown over my head.
This is an outfit often repeated, a summer stand-by this year. The most comfortable dress, my go-to denim vest, and shoes that feel like flats, but aren't. Topped off with jewelry that has been in my possession since I was young, under-appreciated until the past couple of years. Thank god I kept it. A turtle bracelet was the farthest thing from my mind in my ticky-tacky college repertoire of leopard-print bandage skirts, torn fishnets, and plastic-y adornments.
The temperature has finally leveled off to where I can appreciate these days, especially now that these days are getting noticeably shorter. I want to gather them all up, hold onto them, bring them out in the depths of winter when I'm stuck inside on a miserable afternoon. Already there are hints of autumn- our favorite dives are starting to fill back up with college kids, not to mention that I've been writing fall coats and holiday dresses since June at work!
