modern summer pieces

It really feels like summer to me when we get to July Fourth weekend. I love having extra days off, watching Wimbledon, and eating cold watermelon and placing little American flags all about.  In a couple weeks all the fall pre-sales will begin, but I feel like I'm just getting my summer capsule wardrobe together. I've tried my best to shop my own closet and use what I already have in new ways. I am using my my 6 new purchases in different combos with things from several summers past and it's nice. I am also realizing what things just are done and I have little bag to drop them in to donate.

One thing I've noticed is adding a new accessory really makes everything look current and new. I'm wearing the same tops, white jeans and khakis I have for many several summers, but modern shoes and bags give it a fresh look! That's all you need sometimes. After my trip to NYC (more from my trip on the next post), I got a few new brands on my radar and I like the new look some of these pieces have. Just one can give your whole wardrobe a little lift.

Here's some chic bits I noticed many of the New York City girls were sporting similar things...

Love the retro vibe of these!

Both these Loeffler Randalls are on sale plus 30% off this weekend at Club Monaco.

 This Marc Jacobs Metropolitote is onside now at Nords.

Thanks to holiday sales is a good time to pick up a summer item you've been considering!

  1. The black outfit is nice but looks so hot for July...especially lugging around that big bag. Summer feels officially here too as June flew by and was cool.

    1. I agree, but I love the accessories... Here in California it can be cooler. That outfit believe it or not would be perfect for San Francisco in summer! Have a good weekend! Kim

  2. I think that black outfit is the perfect choice for traveling to NYC especially in the summer, maybe just shed the leggings with the extremem heat. I'm heading there next week so I'm looking forward to reading your NY post.

  3. Love everything about that black number, especially the bag!!
