Summer concerts can be the most difficult to dress for, and I found myself in that predicament last weekend. The show turned out to be on a cool and lightly raining night, so I chose this outfit (minus the hat and instead with my cheery yellow rain jacket). I find linen shorts are the perfect material as a starting point, and a chambray blouse — with rolled-up sleeves — is the best topper (even in summer).

Channeling ‘Mad Men’

Dress: Gap (old) | Heels: Vince Camuto via TJ Maxx | Bag: Unknown | Bracelets/Watch: Forever 21

Sometimes the simplest outfits are the ones that make a girl feel the best. This dress is an oldie but a goodie, and I hadn’t yet pulled it out this summer. Liz mentioned that I kind of looked like I stepped off the set of Mad Men with the print of the dress and the shape of the heels (which are a bit of a throwback shape). As an avid Mad Men fan, I’ll definitely take that as a compliment.

(P.S. See above for some other in-store dresses from Gap that are catching my eye.)

Back-to-school makeup (drugstore edition)

Back to school, despite me being out of school for a couple of years, is still one of my favorite times of year. It always meant a new start, a new wardrobe and new makeup. I didn’t start wearing makeup until seventh grade and was totally clueless at first when it came to beauty products, so I thought I’d round up some of my favorite drugstore, very affordable, and very daytime-appropriate products that are perfect for beginners or those looking for a simple routine.

Staple shorts

Back when I bought these shorts from Old Navy in the spring, I had no idea how much rotation they’d get from week to week. They’ve been on all the trips I’ve taken this summer and seem to go with so many tops I own. I’ve paired them with a crop topa graphic T-shirt and a printed sweatshirt. Needless to say, their cost-per-wear was well worth it (especially considering they were so affordable in the first place).

How was your weekend? It was a good one for me! The rain held off for the baseball game and concert Friday, then Saturday was spent at the downtown farmers market, grabbing some coffee, doing a little work, spending time by the pool, and getting my birthday celebrations underway a few days early.

My new neutral

My closet is filled with probably 75% neutrals, and of those, olive green is slowly overtaking my wardrobe. Somehow the color manages to feel fresh almost every season, including the perpetually awkward transition between summer and fall. These shorts will definitely be heavy hitters as we move closer to September; I love that they’re easy to dress up and dress down.

On the schedule for me this weekend: a baseball game and a concert! Other than those two events, my weekend is wide open — and I think I hear the pool calling my name. Have a good one!
