Summery Salute

I had yummy Korean noodles for lunch today with Jamie, who kindly obliged my photo request.  (She was complicit in the early blog days, a longtime blog contributor, really.)  We popped into Zara and H&M for a quick look after (well, it is payday...) and I seriously met mixed emotions....  It was strange to see all the long sleeves, darker colors, and layers, and also the summer sales racks had been pushed all the way to the back.  At the same time...

Fall is coming at us in full force!  Here come the stacked ankle booties, layered jackets, scarves, and delicious textures.  Everything was prominently displayed in the windows, and it looks like the stores are gearing up for one fierce weekend of stocking up for fall.

So, before I switch out sun and sand for autumn leaves, here's one last casual Friday/August look, resurrecting some old closet pieces, including some kate spade heels from S/S 09...


Layered tank: Zara (super similar)
Striped skirt: Forever 21 (in dress form here)
Strappy heels: kate spade (similar)
Everything clutch: Clare Vivier Foldover

  1. I like that skirt material as a skirt but the modcloth dress is a great silhouette for me - I might be tempted and buy it. :)

    In case I have not already left a comment before, this is just a quick note to say hi. I visited your blog during the month of August and I liked what I saw, so I've added you to my feedreader and am following your blog. :)

    Cheers!
