Vest: Similar here and here
Tank: Vince Favorite Tank (completely worth the price! this tank has kept it’s shape through multiple washes and is super soft.)
Skirt: Similar here and love the ikat print of this one

Sandals: Juicy Couture Finny (on sale!) and in pewter here (and 30% off)maxi_skirt3maxi_skirt4

  • I’m wearing flats but standing on my toes for the pictures, it’s just an automatic reflex.  Actually, even when I’m home and I’m barefoot, you’ll still find me standing on my tip toes!
  • Why are maxi skirts so much harder to wear than maxi dresses?  You’d think it would be the same but I bought this maxi skirt from American Apparel ages ago and still can’t find a good way to wear it!  I think it’s the length (too short to be a full maxi) that’s throwing me off.
  • I’ve never dyed my hair before but my hair always naturally gets lighter during the summer.  For some reason though, I think the windows above in the building I was next to made my hair a little purple in the pictures. I promise it doesn’t look purple in real life!
  • This iPhone wallet has been put to good use this summer.  I use it a lot when just running out for groceries or coffee.  It’s nice to not to lug around my purses sometimes!  The only thing that’s annoying is that you have to take it out of the case to take pictures but it really is the only thing that I don’t like about it.

      I have been tempted to buy that iphone wallet a few times, looks better in your pics than on the site! I wish it had a key ring.

      Oh I really like the Michael Kors wallet/clutch/iPhone holder.
      I was looking for something similar the other day.
      And you look so happy, that is great to see :o)

      Eee I love your iphone case! I really want one like that for my Android which is almost, but annoyingly not quite, the same size as the iphone πŸ™

      And yes, you should definitely visit Ishara while you`re up in Vancouver!

      That's funny re: your comment about your maxi skirt because I'm having the same problem! I recently bought a green maxi skirt but it hits me at the ankles so I can really only wear them with flats which has made me hesitant to wear it and not quite sure how to pair it!
