Light weight layering

No need to put away your light weight summer-to-fall transition jackets just yet. Even though the temps are dropping, you can still make use out of them! All you need to do is to layer one of your favorite jackets [that you would typically wear alone] under the light weight style of your choice. The jacket on jacket look adds contrast to your outfit while providing that extra layer of warmth you need.

Off the shoulder + kick flares

I love it when local bloggers are able to get together and mingle [especially when food is involved]. The lovely Candace from Live Love and Read put together a night of bloggers+tacos at the Kitchen Columbus last night and of course I used the opportunity for a photo opp.

I have purchased a few items from Zara over the years but would always end up returning due to fit. This off the shoulder crop top is the first purchase I made that I actually kept. I love the tops unique print and style. I paired the top with Mango high waisted kick flare jeans and simple black sandals.

Summer time print mixing

You know those nights where the weather is so perfect [not too hot] that you’re able to mix long sleeves and shorts and still be comfortable? Yep, this night was one of them. I mixed some light and dark prints for a bright and flirty look.

The boyfriend and I took a stroll around short north to a bunch of different bars. Our last stop was a new bar called Eagles that opened up. I highly recommend the fried chicken and biscuits.

Summer time layering

Summer is always the trickiest season for me. Since it gets so hot outside, you’re somewhat limited to how you can put things together – you’re kind of just stuck with putting one piece or two pieces together.

Even though it’s hot out, that shouldn’t stop you from experimenting with layering. With this look specifically I took a tunic tank top and layered it over a high waisted pleated midi skirt. Rather than a belt, I used a colorful scarf to add contrast to the look. My favorite emerald flats finished off the look with that additional added pop of color.
