A Late Summer Outfit

Tank Top: American Apparel, Vest: Gentlefawn via Blonde, Pants: Melanie Lynn, Sandals: Everlane, Glasses: Blonde, Watch: Michael Kors, Necklace: Salvage & Stone

Every time I start working on a new blog post, I always want to start it with "my current favourite piece in the shop is..." because seriously, each time I make something new it's my favourite piece! Which is probably a good thing, I don't really want to make anything that I feel neutral about. And no one wants to start a blog post with "this piece is okay, I guess." I'm loving this triple circle necklace I added to the shop last week. It's such a simple piece, but still adds a big impact. It's a great addition to my favourite end of summer outfit: slouchy pants and a tank top. Although I hope that I'm a bit early in my assessment that summer is coming to an end. You can find this necklace here.
I wanted to add a thank you to my lovely friend Teala who has helped me take some of my photos since my tripod broke. What a gem.

Gold Chain Necklace

I am slowly but surely adding all my new fall items to the shop! It has been kind of a crazy month around here so things are taking a little bit longer than I had hoped. One of my favourite items I've added so far is this gold chain necklace that Teala is wearing. I love the simplicity of it, and how easy it is to add to almost any outfit. This one is priced at $20 dollars, you can head over here to check it out along with a few other fall pieces I added last week.

Green

Dress: Blonde, Necklace and Bracelets: Salvage & Stone, Sandals: Everlane, Watch: Michael Kors

Right now I'm struggling between trying to enjoy my summer for the first time in about three years,  and getting all my new fall/winter items ready. Wouldn't it be nice if we didn't have to sleep? Think of all the stuff we could get done! So I'm trucking away slowly but surely, I've got about thirty new necklaces, ten new bracelets and around twelve new headbands that will (hopefully) be up in the shop by the end of August. So far this leaf necklace is one of my favourites, but there are a lot of really great pieces that I can't wait to share with you guys!

Peach

 Top: Urban Outfitters, Skirt: Forever 21, Shoes: The White Ribbon, Bracelet: Salvage & Stone, Ring: London Manori

One outfit rule that I always hear, or that often pops up in the back of my mind when I'm getting dressed, is about texture mixing. Apparently when choosing an outfit it's a good idea to mix different fabrics between your top and bottom pieces so that you're not wearing the same texture all over, and while I do agree that this is a good strategy, I also loooove wearing an outfit where each piece is made from the same kind of fabric. Chiffon and chiffon, silk and silk, lace and lace, something about it is just so lovely. It feels easy somehow, and I'm all about ease when it comes to summer style.

Shop Sale And Redesign

Over the next week or so I'm going to be making a few changes to some of the items in my Etsy shop, redesigning a few old pieces and replacing some of them with newer items. So I thought I would put everything that's currently in the shop on 20% off for today and tomorrow! If there's something you've had your eye on but haven't gotten around to purchasing, now is the time to grab it because it might be gone and turned into something new by next week. Use coupon code DESIGN20 to get the deal.
