SUNDAY.  When the thing you're willing to splurge on hits the Sale wall... - Beautifully sleek leather, minimal in all aspects. A black buckle would've been more of a match made in Heaven, for purposes of metal mixing. But this is otherwise a buy you'll see on date nights for years to come. Nothing special here. Except for everything.

Slip: Victoria's Secret

TUESDAY. A little bit of murdering went on, as far as pretty pinks go. I bought both the slip and robe with this Chantilly lace and sheer pink fabric during Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale and kept the robe in its natural make. But I've been needing that black lace peekage under oversized sweaters or with blouses with sloppy cuts here and there.. I ideally still want a dress formula.. non sheer fabric, longer hem... but this DIY has been plenty loyal to me so far.

Cami: Goodwill, unbranded |  Shorts: Ingni | Cardigan: Hinge

TUESDAY. In the hunt for lighter neutral dresses/slips/easy to put on things, I am messing with the tans and creams already in my closet. Think silk camis and breathable dresses. I picked up these shorts in Tokyo last summer and am still coordinating outfits unsuccessfully. I think the issue is how they accentuate hips in unflattering folds. Still, spent the day jean hunting... and killing, via All Saints... and having Turkish coffee and sweets with my girl friends between breaks. How can you say no to black coffee with cardamom and summer sales?

Sweater: Sammydress | Pants: BCBG | Booties: Sam Edelman |
Shades: Vintage | Lace: Victoria's Secret, DIY

WEDNESDAY. Sammydress sent me this braided pullover that mocks a grey sweater I've had pinned on my moodboard for seasons. They do inexpensive takes on existing trends, offering an alternative way to build a fun wardrobe. As a fan of comfortable materials, I'd save my staples for more expensive brands. But as a fan of experimenting with adventurous versions of classics, they're ones to check out before committing to the real deal. With the solstice behind us, I'll have to reserve this chunky twisted sweater for the number of boat parties that keep popping up on my summer calendar. But it went well with the Chantilly lace slip and suede jeggings for a gallivant around town before the temperatures rose.
