sunnies and a new (old) dress

summer's still kickin' over heresummer's still kickin' over hereWhere most people are already starting to see and feel the beginnings of Fall, Summer is alive and well in Southern California. Straw hats and sunnies are still used around here and will probably be for awhile as Fall doesn’t really give way until November. Oye! I do see the shorter days, but man oh man, it’s still as hot as ever. Things are brown from the heat, not from the Autumnal change.

The Sunglasses Shop sent over these sunglasses and I love them. They are such good quality and really, I am typically a never-spend-more-than-$10-on-sunglasses person, but I do now understand that a bit higher in price definitely yields quality. Not in every case, but in this case… yes. I can now totally tell the difference between a $10 and a really nice pair. I am so careful with these (and these handmade ones) and makes sure that they are always in its case when not in use. I plan on these lasting me a very long time.

This dress is a new fave.  It’s linen and comfy, but my favorite part is that it is really simple. Ben has been going through his many boxes of vintage clothes and came across this one that I must have stashed ages ago. I immediately ironed it and put it on and have worn it pretty much 4 out of the past 7 days. I see this getting many more uses into the Fall and Winter with some boots and instead of a denim vest, a chambray shirt or denim jacket!

on me: dress, vintage. vest, c/o joa closet. necklace, lo fidelity love. sunglasses, sunglasses shop. shoes, modcloth. on soul: shirt, c/o little esop. pants, misha lulu.

And this one is just for kicks because this looks like a photoshop picture gone bad…
