Summer Style: that vest again



I almost didn't post this outfit because when I saw the pictures, I decided I didn't like the way it looked as an ensemble and also because apparently that I only wear maxis + vest + sneaks when I go out. Last week I wore kinda the same thing here and so this week, instead of breaking into my sister's house, she was kind enough to snap the pictures for me.  She's nice that way. She also makes a good cookie, so there's that too.

Things I like about this outfit? The backpack, the shoes and the sunglasses.  So basically everything except the actual clothing,  which was just kinda blah to me.  I think what this needed was a belt or something, but I'm not a fan of the belt so live and let live. Or learn. Or whatever.



Outfit deets:  Sunglasses, Vest, Maxi (old, but while searching for it, I found this dress that I now want and would probably have looked better with this outfit. Okay, you've convinced me, I'll order it) , Shoes (also couldn't find the Shoreline in pink, so Sarah and I definitely picked winners on our Vegas trip.  I like these ones too) , Backpack and Necklace (from Stella Dot but I also couldn't find it but would have ordered this one that Christy ordered instead.  Also- did you know my friend Shaunacey is now a consultant? Let her hook you up).

And since I'm not 1000% proud of today's look, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some August looks of the past.  That has been my favourite feature of having a Mac,  I love that all my pictures are sorted by the date they were snapped.

  4. You are just taunting me with vests :P. I did finally order a utility vest though. Pretty stinking excited about that one. There are some days I am 1000% convinced that I need my blunt bangs back too. Then I just tell myself I'll love them for a short time and be so over it again. UGH.

  16. Hey, you got farther than me on a meh outfit. Even if it isn't that meh in my option. I tried to take photos of one the other day, looked at a few, and was like nope nope nope. Went back into the the house and gave up on picture taking.

  17. I love those bangs!!!!! I always wanted bangs like that but I was told my multiple hairdressers that I can't pull them off :) I will echo Laura's comment that you always look awesome and you are way too hard on yourself, though looking and feeling awesome are completely different so I do get that. Happy back to school (I heart that little backpack)!

  21. That's exactly my problem with hair in general..I grow it out then want it short then cut it short and want it long then cut some bangs and hate myself.

  22. That makes them that more special to me :)
