Lookbook: (not so) Sunny Days

jcrew_shorts3jcrew_shorts2jcrew_shorts

The weather in Seattle looks more like fall than summer.  I'm refusing to deal with this weather so I've been trying my best to pull out some of my summer wardrobe.  I got these Miu Miu sandals at the last designer sale which I was so happy my SA could find in my size.  I have this weird thing where I don't really like shoes that shows my feet, especially my toes, which is why I own so many pumps and not many sandals (I'm okay with peep toes though).  Still you can't go through summer without some sandals and I loved the criss cross design of these so I made the exception and they are a happy addition to the collection!  My hair is finally back to being healthy so I'm trying not to use heated tools on my hair lately.  I'm so used to curling my hair so I've been needing to find new hairstyles to go with but the good news is I've finally been getting use out of my headbands that I rarely wear.  

Oh and I have to mention that I DIY'd my link bracelets from this tutorial from Honestly WTF and I loved the results!  Here's a closer up shot of my bracelets.

Also, congrats to Eboni who won my PB&J Boutique Giveaway!  Eboni, I sent you an email so check your inbox! :)

This is the exact same style as mine but in lavender.  Here's a similar style but short sleeve for those of you that lives in a city that actually gets sun! (Ha! Can you tell that I'm super bitter about the weather in Seattle?)

 J Crew Esplanade Short
I'm loving lace shorts lately.  I like the black ones like these where you can only see the texture of it (although the pink ones are adorable too).  Oh, but these scalloped hem lace shorts are so cute too.



Mine are suede but these are the same style.  Also, in a taupe color and shorter heel.  The latest Miu Miu collection has me lusting after many shoes.  These definitely top the list!

Similar to mine!   Or another one here!  (please note, I've never shopped at FarFetch for vintage designer bags but I do know that they are a reputable retailer).  For my tips on shopping for vintage Chanel bags, click here!

YSL Arty Ring
I have heard lots of rumblings about these rings chipping or breaking but I've had mine for awhile now and haven't had any problems.  Granted, I'm not very hard on mine and only wear it a few times a month but I still think they are worth it!  I get lots of questions about sizing too... Mine is a size 5 (the smallest size) which I recommend if you have petite fingers. (my ring finger on my right hand is a size 4)  Jean over at Extra Petite is a lot smaller than I am and the size 5 is a bit big on her but she's got a great solution for too big rings!

One last thing!  New post on the Smarter blog!  Check out my tips on how to wear colorful shoes!

  8. Tiffany, YSL sells 4's on their website (but then you can't get Saks F&F discounts and what not and it's harder to return if you don't like it) so that's an option for those with really tiny fingers. Thanks for the link love - foam tape has been working great for all my rings : )

  9. Wow, the F21 top makes your outfit so glamourous!

    YSL actually does carry smaller rings! I think they go as low as size 4, as Jean mentions. : ) I've had mine for a while too and wear it almost everyday. I've hit it against walls and tables so many times and there are absolutely no cracks or scratches on it. Not bad at all! And nooo! You put your bag on the ground? It breaks my heart even if I put some of my cheaper ones on the carpet! :(

  10. @PetiteAsianGirl oh! Good to know. I bought mine at the YSL store and they told me that was the smallest size they had so I assumed that was the smallest size. thanks! I'll correct the post.

  11. @The Little Dust Princess Ah! I usually don't put my bags on the ground either but I wanted to get a shot of my bag with my shoes. I just put it down real quick, got the shot and then wiped it off!

  13. I love this outfit, although I did think that was a jacket when I saw the first picture. I always think it's great to see a high-low mix.

    I am craving nothing but bracelets these days and hope that when I actually make it to Michael's for supplies one of these days, that mine will turn out so nice as yours.

    i'm kind of jealous of your weather right now because sweating is not sexy!

  15. Aha! I knew there was a reason you wore a headband today! It looks really cute.. I think it brightens up your look. Especially with that pop of lipstick!

    I am a big fan of long sleeves with shorts so I love this!
