Summer Simplicity

 Top, thrifted. Skirt + belt, f21, Shoes, so old! I can't remember where they came from. bracelets + necklace, gifted & thrifted.
 I've been wearing maxi skirts more than ever the past month, and you can bet July will be no different. Sometimes a maxi is too dressy for the occasion though, so I've been pairing them with simple tees like the one above to give it an airy, chill vibe. It's been perfect for the most unforgiving heat we've had; though no complaints on my end. I couldn't be happier with this hot, hot weather, especially when it comes to summer ventures. We took our first bicycle ride date last night downtown for some gelato + coffee, and the weather was so sweet to us. I'm really a rather simple gal, so summer evenings like this are my favorite. 

The Heinrich Maneuver by Interpol on Grooveshark

Rabbit trail: We also took it upon ourselves to rescue a stray kitten yesterday. I'm really contemplating keeping the little fella, though deep down I know it's not the best idea for where we're at in our lives. His whole 2 lbs of furry cuteness is making quite the case though. If you're in the Springfield area (or nearby) and would like to claim him as your own, please email me! You might have to fight Josh though; he's already picked out a name. ;)

  16. So perfect. I love how you tied the top and how your wearing a belt that you obviously don't need with a maxi skirt and it totally works. And the color of that necklace contrasting perfectly with the orange in your shirt. !!! highdollarhippie.blogspot.com

  19. Love this outfit! Definitely inspiring and gives me some new ideas for wearing maxi skirts- I wore one today! I do especially love the one you are wearing from F21. Did you get it very long ago? Like, would they still have it if I went in this week? Thanks!

  23. Oh my goodness the cuteified ball of fur, so adorable! You have to tell us about the rescue, how did you rescue him and how on earth can you say no to that?! Then again... maybe my soft heart for paws is the reason why I started my crazy catlady career already with two loveable mewo-meows.

  34. Oh man that kitten is so adorable. I've been trying to convince my husband that we need a kitty. I'm hoping I "accidentally" find a stray soon so we "have" to keep it!
