These sandals again. You haven't seen the last of them.

Goodwill jacket, cool shop in Chester, NJ shirt, UO skirt, Steve Madden sandals from Nordstrom Rack

Elephants are the best. The store where I work currently has elephant-print scarves and I sometimes wear one while I'm working while trying to decide whether or not I should buy it. But really, I should buy it because I need more elephants in my life.

Old Navy jacket, Old Navy top from Labels consignment, Pacsun jeans, vintage Ferragamo shoes from Buffalo Exchange

There is so much color in this outfit, I might have to wear all black for a week to recover. Somehow the neutrality of the denim jacket made me feel better about the whole thing, even though it was too hot to wear it at work and went most of the day without it.

Wishful dressing

UO t-shirt and skirt, vintage belt, Steve Madden boots

Here is my attempt at willing fall weather to come faster by wearing boots. It did not work.

Two for one

secondhand AE cardigan, Buffalo Exchange dress, Bass sandals

Gap sweater from Labels consignment, self-cutoff AE shorts, LL Bean boat shoes from Value Village
So summer is ending and I can maybe wear pants again sometime soon without getting heat stroke at work. Meanwhile, here are a couple of tips on making the transition into fall a bit smoother. 

1. Get a Slurpee while you can. They are available year-round, but let's be honest, they're never better than in warm weather. Make sure you layer at least 3 flavors, beginning and ending always with Coke.

2. SWEATERS. Put them over shorts, flowy skirts, minidresses, and very soon skinny jeans with a great pair of boots. Find at least one really comfy, versatile sweater to add to your wardrobe and make it your signature piece. I got lucky with the one in the second photo, it's a lovely fit and sooooo soft it makes me want to pet myself.
